I have the Apple Bluetooth keyboard which I purchased online from the Apple
UK website.  I don't use it much these days, but it was worth the £60
investment because it got me going and gave me the confidence I have now to
do things without it.

Good luck.
 


Kind regards,

Hi Eleanor

Ok firstly, I have been bogged down by comments and advice,
I can only remember or absorb so much partly because of my
disability and also I am learning something new. With the
keyboard I have now, only one key speaks so I have no idea
at all what I am doing so it is little use to me. I may hang
on to it as mum may get an ipad too but I am not sure. It is
not worth the agro of returning it. On amazon thre are the
ultra thin or ultra thin, I am not being given a choice,
just for different colours and for ipad air and things like
that.   

Regards

Adrien

Adrian, I did advise an Apple keyboard actually and said you
would not go 
wrong there.  I have an ultra-thin myself and I love it
however, I would 
recommend the Apple keyboard for you as it also has the
Function Keys on it 
which the Ultra-thin does not.  What is the one you have at
present.  can't 
you use it by touch until your new keyboard comes?
