I have seen first hand how enlarged keyboards make a difference for students with visual impairments and for those with physical disabilities.  However I have never seen or put to use a digital keyboard in my classroom. I am sure this virtual keyboard based on this review can make a difference to students usage.  The fact it has built in grammar and speech features adds value to it and makes it very useful among all kinds of learners.

Makes a lot of sense and has a great point. At times we do segregate technology making it seem as it is only to be used for those with a disability or directed to a specific population, when in reality it can be beneficial for everybody.
