I then tried a CM Storm QuickFire TK - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX RED Switches (lowest resistance) with much more success. That keyboard has been a lifesaver for my mild hand arthritis, and restored my usual typing accuracy. 1-1/2 years after starting to use the Cherry MX RED keyboard plus DragonVoice, my hand arthritis has substantially improved despite a higher load of typing before using these products. If you can't touch keys at all, the LightIO and/or DragonVoice may be your only options. But if you have hand pain that can improve with rest sometimes, and if you have to keep up the pace for deadlines at work, I would recommend the Cherry MX RED keyboard plus DragonVoice instead.
I spent 1hr / day for 10 days trying to learn how to type effectively on this, and my WPM never made it above 25. (and its 60+ on a normal keyboard). The space bar is exceptionally difficult to manage. The compact size means that you need to use weird key combos for many non-alpha characters.
Someone with large hands or fat fingers would have trouble using this keyboard. It's about the size of a child's toy keyboard.
With some practice you can type without actually touching the surface, but I was not able to increase my accuracy enough to make this tool worthwhile to use.
It is very thin, small and lightweight. It needs to be placed on a level sturdy surface to use it. It is easier to use with a tool (like a pencil eraser) than to touch type -- so the learning curve may be easier for someone who uses an adaptive tool for keyboarding.
The idea is excellent the keyboard pieces are surrounded by a ridge which allows the light to travel through and when your finger breaks the beam the letter types. The keyboard is made for very small fingers and the main frustration is that the space bar isn't a bar but just a key on the bottom. Oh, how we managed not to hit that.....
The manufacturers say that my observations are due to be fixed on the next release. Down the road I think this will be a good keyboard but not just yet.
We bought this to try it out, assuming that their return policies are like other vendors on Amazon if we did not like it. That is not the case - it is very difficult to return this keyboard, and they make you pay postage to return it with no guarantee of a refund.
I am grateful for the ingenuity that was put into the devlopment of this keyboard and eagerly awaiting new TOUCHLESS technology from LightIO!!!
