    That one with the bright yellow keys might be good for unusual installations, like the factory floor, on in the back of an equipment van.

    Great pick up! I have two sites with poor lighting, only used for interface PCs. I always struggle to see the keys on the rare occasion I need to work in either place.

    Unfortunately $35 for keyboard $115 for shipping. I'll have to talk to my friendly local retailer.

    $115 for shipping a $35 product is outrageous! If you google (now an officially recognized word) for "large print keyboards," you'll find a number of different sources, some of which should be less expensive in terms of shipping.

    The foreign language versions don't appear to have the large print keys.

    Hmmn, didn't find anything I liked as much as your original. I think I might set my local retailer a task.

    That's right. Separate categories for foreign language and large print. Guess foreign language users don't have a need for large print keyboards. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Not a solution, but IBM has a site showing interactive maps of keyboards from a number of countries.

    Re: Large print keyboards

    Having had need to setup PCs to use foreign languages in the past that is really useful. I've bookmarked it for future reference. <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15>
