while it's not all black maybe this would help you. btw why print letter on a keyboard made for the blind?
So none blind people can use it?

The real question is why would blind people do with a computer?
ummm blind people can use a computer. they have software that can read everything out to them. they just wouldn't particularly need a monitor.

Ease of access is there for a reason.

I used to have a M$ Office Keyboard which was brilliant. Unfortunately the version of Intellitype needed is not Win7 compatible.

I treated myself to a Wireless Desktop 3000 set which also comes in black = mistake.

In subdued light the keys are difficult to read.
Also, being wireless, there are no NumLock, CapsLock or Fkey Lock lights either.

Now considering one of the wired Logitecs with illuminated keys - are they any good?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I'm using the G110 right now. It's black, but it's illuminated and wired, and if you're into gaming it's good for that too.

But not in dim light lighting with old eyes.

Two keyboards, one computer?
It's the first time I've had to consider this, but I need to have two keyboards connected to the computer. I need one for certain jobs and another one for others. Is it possible? Does Win 7 have a setting that would allow 2 keyboards at the same time?
