Does it WorK Wednesday: EZ Eyes

DEXTER, MO (KFVS) -

If you have trouble seeing the letters and numbers on your computer keyboard, then you may want to hook up EZ Eyes in your USB port.  The makers say the font on this yellow and black board is four times the size of normal keys.  Charlie Simmons of Dexter hopes the larger font will increase his typing speed because he'll be able to see more clearly.

We hook up the EZ Eyes keyboard and have no trouble.  Charlie compares it to his normal keys and said the EZ Eyes model worked much better.  It appears the actual keys themselves aren't any bigger or spaced out further, but the font size is much bigger and the yellow and black contrast does make it easier to see the keys.

Charlie also wanted to know if other claims made by the manufacturer held true.  For instance, apparently this board is spill-resistant.  We spilled a cup of water on the keys, just like the commercial shows!  We didn't have much trouble typing again, although Charlie said the keys didn't feel as loose as before. 

Next, we turned off the lights to see if this board really glows in the dark.  We found it did not do this at all.  Multiple KFVS viewers also emailed Lauren, reporting the same thing: it's not glow-in-the-dark. However, these viewers and Charlie are willing to look past the spill and glow claims because the large font makes it easier to use.

"I'd give it a good grade 'B'.  I wish I would've had this a long time ago" said Charlie.

EZ Eyes easily passes the Does it Work test with a good grade, 'B'.  Lauren bought the $15 keyboard at Dollar General.
