I think that pretty much explains the issue.

Is it clear that to use a keyboard you have to find the alternative  
version? How hard is it to make the thing respond to keyboard control?

It seems your developer is proposing something that probably technically  
fulfils the minimum possible requirement, but is really second-rate (to  
almost avoid saying "half-arsed amateurish") work.

If you're prepared to pay for that, the developer can probably justify it  
as acceptable. If this is truly the scenario, please let me know who the  
project team is so I don't risk hiring them.
