Find the Best Computer Keyboard for Small Hands
With so many keyboards available for small hands (ranging from laptop-style keyboards to those resembling server keyboard consoles) you might have a few problems in narrowing down exactly which keyboard is suitable for your needs. Let’s take a look at the top selection.
The laptop style keyboard for desktop computers is best embodied by Fentek’s SlimTouch Mini Keyboard (right) which comes equipped with a USB connection, laptop-style touchpad, 88 keys and 12 function keys, integrated number pad (as you would find on a laptop) and LEDs for the Number Lock, Caps Lock and Scroll Lock. Weighing just 7oz this keyboard is suitable for small hands and small bags!
Meanwhile if you’re looking for a keyboard designed and built purely for children, the Child Size Washable keyboard is designed for those with smaller hands and features a built in trackball with mouse buttons, but most impressively (even more than the 5 ½ inch distance between the Q and the P) this keyboard can be wiped clean and weighing just 8oz it can be easily carried in a backpack.
Finally, there is the Adesso Mini Black USB Keyboard (around $33 from Amazon), a cabled USB keyboard that can be quickly plugged in and used by small hands (see right).
Something to bear in mind with this keyboard, however, is the layout – in attempting to include some of the keys usually found on the right of the enter key on a standard keyboard, Adesso have positioned a few of them quite a bit closer to the enter key on this keyboard, so starting out with this keyboard you might need a bit of time to adjust!
