Braille PC Keyboard - The 83 PKB-SA-B-USB can be used at home or office. It has a full set of key touch positions with braille cells. It can be personalized with a persons name and in their colors. It is very compact, only 6.25"x12"x1", so it can travel with you to be used on any PC at school or office, and it's sealed from the top so cokes or coffee can be just washed off.

NEW Operational Spec's - EKI has three modes of operation.

The scroll lock key when on selects the Braille operation, when off Braille is not selected, but after 2.5 minutes the keyboard will revert back to Braille.

The First mode is when the keyboard is powered up it is in Braille mode, with only the Braille keys enabled that have the embossed cells present, in operation the users fingers searches for a key and when the key is found the user slightly raises their finger and then does a tap at the same location to output the key. If the keyboard does not see the second tap within a predetermined time then the key is not input. By touching the left or right shift key, and remain touching, with the embossed up arrow, then searching for the key the user wants to shift then doing a tap thekey is shifted, depending on how quick the user is they may have to do a double tap.

The Second mode is where a sighted user comes to the keyboard and touches the lower left key marked Touch Type and the key in the upper right corner double marked Home/Touch Type then the keyboard switches to touch typing where all the keys are enabled and the user just touches the key to output the key function, then after a one minute delay of not typing the keyboard automatically reverts backs to Braille mode. The ON LED will come on in the upper left when in Touch Typing or second mode. Everytime the user touches a key the one minute delay will inceased by the one minute.

The Third mode of operation, the computer sends over a S/L (scroll lock) key code and in response the keyboard goes into Touch Typing mode, then after a 2.5 minute delay of not typing the keyboard reverts automatically back to Braille mode. The scroll lock command can be issued from another keyboard connected to the same computer or directly from a computer software command. The computer bios can be configured to issue the scroll lock command on start up, if so programmed to start the keyboard in touch type mode, but after a 2.5 minute delay the keyboard will revert to Braille.

Note:

1. If the caps lock key is touched on a regular keyboard plugged into the same computer the two functions will be reflected on the Braille keyboard.

2. At anytime while in Touch typing mode the two Touch Typing keys can be touched to return to Braille mode, they should be touched in sequence lower left key and then the upper right key. Touching either key by itself will not produce and output.

There are additional embossed keys that are not in the Braille cell set that have an obviously feel that for ENTER, SHIFT, TAB and BACK SPACE.
