Intellikeys USB



A versatile enlarged keyboard that plugs into any Macintosh or Windows computer with only the change of a cable. It enables users with physical, visual, or cognitive disabilities to easily type, enter numbers, navigate on-screen displays, and execute menu commands. Overlays for numbers, mouse movement, and alphabetical and QWERTY key layouts can be slid into the IntelliKeys for instant use. Customized overlays can also be created and printed with the Overlay Maker Program.  Customizable early learning, literacy and math activities ready for Intellikeys can be found in Classroom Suite.

The Keyboard with a Changing Face

IntelliKeys USB plugs into the computer's USB port and provides access for anyone who has difficulty using a standard keyboard. In combination with its many overlays, it is the most flexible alternative keyboard available, providing individualized support for young students, struggling learners, and ELL students. The universal design of the overlays provides large, well-spaced keys in high contrast colors to help students locate letters, numbers, words, and directional arrows. Concepts are broken down into manageable components, with streamlined choices, fewer concepts at a time, pictures to support learning—even student photographs for personalization.

Personalized Touch Control

IntelliKeys USB's sophisticated programming allows teachers to customize each keyboard by selecting:

  • How quickly each key responds to touch
  • How quickly each key repeats (fast to slow)
  • Whether the repeat feature is on or off
  • How quickly the mouse moves
  • Whether to latch the shift and control keys for one-finger typists
  • Whether the student must lift off before another key press is recognized
  • Smart typing, such as punctuation spacing and "q" automatically followed by "u"

Standard Overlays

These durable overlays, included with IntelliKeys USB, allow students to work with writing, math, and drawing programs, the Internet, and email:

  •  Alphabet overlay
  •  Basic writing overlay
  •  QWERTY overlay
  •  Web overlay
  •  Math access overlay
  •  Mouse access overlay

Customizable Switch Interface

IntelliKeys USB also works with switch-accessible software and helps the transition from switch-scanning to direct-select access. It is compatible with cable and wireless AbleNet switches. Overlay Maker can be used to program words or phrases for switches connected to IntelliKeys USB.
