Help Needed in Choosing a Basic Keyboard

  Miss.Peppermint 08:25 25 Aug 2018

I am trying to find a reasonably priced full size ordinary white keyboard, either online or in the High Street. When I say 'ordinary', I mean not a gaming keyboard nor an ergonomic one. I have age-related macular degeneration, so I need it to have laser engraved black characters, and there must be no flashing lights under the keyboard.

....full size ordinary white keyboard.........

I'm assuming that you're looking for a keyboard with a UK layout so here's one that also has extra-large keys.

You could try the RNIB

Secret-Squirrel Thank you for the link you sent me. The keyboard in question only has 87 keys (not counting the spacebar) and I need a full sized one with 103 keys. I am looking for one with a UK layout, but not with extra large keys. As long as the keys are white and the characters are black and laser engraved, and I am using bright lighting, I will be able to see it fine. Thank you for going to the trouble of trying to find one for me.

hastlloy Thank you for the link for the RNIB. The keyboard only has 76 keys, and I need a full sized one with 103 keys. The keys need to be white and the characters black otherwise I cannot make them out. But thank you very much for your suggestion - I am very grateful.

I have at last managed to find a suitable keyboard on Amazon. It is a Silver Seal Keyboard White - THE Antimicrobial Washable Keyboard. Many thanks to everyone who tried to help me.
