A keyboard is a device used to type text into a computer.
What kinds of keyboards are there?
Ergonomic keyboards are designed to help your hands be better aligned while typing. They might be tilted or split in a way that lets you wrists rest in a neutral position. This can reduce strain, which is good for typists with arthritis, carpal tunnel, or tendonitis.
Keyboards like the Maltron or TiPY are made to be used with only one hand. If you have used a two-handed keyboard in the past, it will take practice to learn a new typing pattern.
The rings of the Tap Strap detect your hand movement to type using motion.

On Screen Keyboards
On-screen keyboards can accommodate a variety of access methods, including touch (like texting on your mobile phone), eye gaze, or switch control.
Keyboards with larger buttons, large print labels, or color coding can be helpful for typists with vision impairments.
A keyguard is a cover that lies over your keyboard, with holes for each button. It gives your hands a place to rest. Keyguards can make it easier to hit the key you want, without accidentally hitting other keys as well.
You might use a headstick, mouthstick, or stylus to touch the keys instead of using your fingers.
