I have tested the ZX Keyboard with JSSpeccy created by the demo scene genius Matt Westcott running on a PC. The good news, and somewhat expectedly, it works.

The bad news is that, like Fuse, the key mapping I have done to get the Keyboard to work with modern operating systems has broken compatibility. I am now looking at implementing an emulator compatibility mode by using a hardware switch or key combination.
