Abstract
(EN)
A speed typing method and apparatus having multiple letters (Fig. 1) associated with each key (52) of a keyboard (50). By utilizing multiple characters on each key (52), the number of keys (52) would be fewer than the number of letters in the alphabet using this system (100) (e.g., fewer than 26 letter keys for the English alphabet). Each key (52) on the keyboard (52) is associated with a numerical code. The system (100) uses the numerical code associated with a typed word to access a dictionary or table of words stored in memory (12) at a memory location corresponding to the input numerical code. The system may display all of the words available to the user in response to the input code. The user then selects one of the available words to be placed in the document. Alternatively the system (100) may enable display of one or more preferred words. The keys (52) of the keyboard (50) may be contoured so that the user senses the position of his hand in relation to the keys of the keyboard. The typing system (100) is also implemented by a finger-mounted input device having switches. The finger-mounted device may also be used in conjunction with one or more input selection panels. The panels have keys which are selectable by the user in conjunction with the switches.

L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil pour dactylographie rapide reposant sur l'utilisation de lettres multiples associées à chaque touche de clavier, ce qui permet de réduire le nombre de touches par rapport au nombre de lettres dans l'alphabet (par exemple, moins de 26 touches pour l'alphabet dans la langue anglaise). Chaque touche est associée à un code numérique, lequel est utilisé en association avec un mot dactylographié pour l'accès à un dictionnaire ou à une table de mots se trouvant en mémoire, selon le code numérique saisi. Le système peut afficher tous les mots disponibles pour l'utilisateur en réponse au code saisi, ce qui permet de choisir l'un des mots disponibles à placer dans le document. Le système peut aussi fonctionner en affichant un ou plusieurs mots préférés. Les touches peuvent présenter un contour permettant de sentir la position de la main sur le clavier. On peut également prévoir un dispositif de saisie monté sur les doigts, fonctionnant avec des commutateurs. Ce dispositif peut d'ailleurs être utilisé en combinaison avec un ou plusieurs panneaux de sélection de saisie. Les panneaux comportent des touches sélectionnables par l'utilisateur en liaison avec les commutateurs.
