Title (EN) KEYBOARD
(FR) CLAVIER
Abstract:
(EN) Keyboard for choice of symbols having keys (15) for the highly frequently used symbols divided in two groups, which has a position for placing the fingers except for the thumb for the left hand of the keys to the one group, and for the right hand on the keys of the other group. The groups are arranged at each side of the middle plane for an operator in such a way that the common plane of the key surfaces slope against the horizontal plane by their upwardly turned edges in against each other, and form an angle to the horizontal plane for each of the key planes, preferably about 30° and at an angle to each other by their edges turned away from the operator. The keys in each group are divided in a number of vertically extending rows, having four keys in each row. At the upper side of the key plane, longitudinal supports (18) have been arranged for the thumb of each hand along which support the thumb can slide. The keys and the support for the thumbs are mutually so arranged that at support with the thumb in a displacement position of the hand, a position for said fingers are obtained each opposite one of the four keys in a first row, and a second displacement position opposite the keys in a second row etc.
(FR) Clavier permettant un choix de symboles ayant des touches (15) pour les symboles utilisés très fréquemment divisées en deux groupes, lequel présente une position permettant de placer les doigts, excepté le pouce, de la main gauche sur les touches d'un groupe, et la main droite sur les touches de l'autre groupe. Les groupes sont agencés de chaque côté d'un plan intermédiaire destiné à un opérateur, de sorte que le plan commun des surfaces des touches est en pente contre le plan horizontal, par leurs bords tournés vers le haut l'un contre l'autre, et forment un angle par rapport au plan horizontal de chacun des plans des touches, de préférence d'environ 30° et à un angle donné les uns par rapport aux autres, par leurs bords tournés à l'opposé de l'opérateur. Les touches se trouvant dans chaque groupe sont divisées en un certain nombre de colonnes verticales présentant chacune quatre touches. Au niveau du côté supérieur du plan des touches, des supports longitudinaux (18) ont été agencés pour le pouce de chaque main, le long desquels le pouce peut glisser. Les touches et le support destiné aux pouces sont mutuellement agencés de sorte que lorsque le pouce est supporté dans une position de déplacement de la main, l'on obtient des positions pour les doigts en face de chacune des quatre touches situées dans une rangée, et une seconde position de déplacement en face des touches se trouvant dans la seconde rangée etc.
