Hot Key Keyboard required for visually impaired employee

Someone told me earlier today there are hot key keyboards available for people who are visually impaired (virtually no vision in this case).

Apparently this works along side a standard keyboard and has a series of programmable buttons.

It would be good if each button opened up a different software application, then the same or different keys could then carry out functions within the applications.

Does anyone has suggests? I am in the UK.

Please note we already have a few users setup on computers using zoomtext for speech and zoom and they utilise the windows shortcuts quite a lot.  So this additional device would be to enhance the users experiences and try to make things easier.

Try this utility: http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/re-program-your-windows-keyboard-keys-simple-utility.htm - it should let you reprogram a standard keyboard.

Dell has some special keyboards with programmable hotkeys.

Thank you for your response.  I thought there would be more responses to this question.  However, I will speak to our Dell contact as we use Dell equipment supplied via the local council
