If you have any questions in relation to BeeRaider’s products, then before contacting us, be sure to first check out our FAQs below for a possible answer.
Q1. Do we have a Radial Keyboard App for Apple iPhone and iPads?
Not at present. However, now that Apple has allowed third party changes to be made to their IOS system in their recently released version 8, we expect to provide a Radial Keyboard App for Apple products sometime in the future.
Q2. When will BeeRaider release a Blue-tooth portable version of their Radial Keyboard design?
This would likely be our second physical product, which we would look to launch as a follow-up to our PC wireless desktop keyboard.
Q3. Why is your current Android Keyboard App not free?
We originally conceived it as a virtual prototype for use as a proof-of-concept for our Radial Keyboard design. Our intention is to upgrade it for sale before deciding on giving the current version away for free.
Q4. What testing have you done?
We have carried out limited testing by comparing our Optimised Radial Keyboard App against the Android default QWERTY keyboard and the results have been in line with expectations. Further testing is set to continue now that our physical keyboards have become available. They will allow us to conduct more in-depth testing and validation of the design. We are confident that the hopes we have invested in our Optimised Radial Keyboard design will be fully vindicated.
Q5. Will your first wireless keyboard(s) be compatible with Apple products?
Our intended first physical keyboard products will be 2.4GHz desktop wireless keyboards. They will be a desktop PC keyboard and mouse combo set and will be specifically designed to operate with WinTel PCs. However, they may also work (to some extent) with Apple products that have a USB port. We are not promoting these first keyboards for use with Apple products because they’ve been designed for Wintel PCs and as such some of the ancillary keys may not function.
Q6. What can I do if I have a problem installing BeeRaider’s Android Keyboard App?
Firstly, try following the instructions for the ‘App installation’ found here. If this fails then drop us a message using the ‘Support’ submission form found here.
Q7. The nano-receiver appears to be missing in my new combo-set?
The nano-receiver is stored in the battery compartment of the keyboard when shipped. It’s recommended that you store it here for safety in transit or when not using your keyboard for a prolonged period of time.
Q8. How do I obtain a continuous line of a given character when using the green and blue dot-keys?
Let’s say that you wanted a continuous line of ‘+’ characters. Just momentarily press the blue-dot key once then press AND HOLD the ‘X’ key where the ‘+’ character is located. Hold the key for as long as is required to obtain the continuous line of ‘+’ characters.
Q9. How do I activate the RED (dead) keys. I have the US keyboard driver installed?
A couple of examples follow:
To obtain the double quote character (“); press the blue-dot key momentarily and then press the ‘O’ key. It’s in a blue-dot character position.
To obtain the single quote character (‘); press the green-dot key momentarily and then press the ‘O’ key. It’s in a green-dot character position.
The rest (of the RED dead-keys) are likewise obtained.
Note that this works in a similar way with the US International keyboard driver installed, except that you must press a follow-on character for the (RED dead-key) character to appear. Note that a ‘space-character’ is also a valid follow-on character, whenever you just want the (RED dead-key) character to appear on its own. You should also read page 37 of the User Guide.
Q10. Where can I get the latest BeeRaider Keyboard driver?
Download the latest BeeRaider Keyboard driver from the following link. It cures a minor issue with the version supplied on the mini-CDROM.
Q11. How do I install the Keyboard driver(s) on a Windows 10.0 system?
