Title
(EN) KEYBOARD COMPRISING SWIPE-SWITCHES PERFORMING KEYBOARD ACTIONS
(FR) CLAVIER COMPRENANT DES COMMUTATEURS DE BALAYAGE EXÉCUTANT DES ACTIONS DE CLAVIER
Abstract
(EN)
The present disclosure provides for an ambiguous keyboard comprising at least two switches for performing keyboard actions, at least one of the two switches being a swipe-switch. The swipe switch can alter at least one characteristic selected from a group including: a) a function of at least one switch of the at least two switches of the ambiguous keyboard; and b) a mode of a second swipe-switch of the ambiguous keyboard.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un clavier ambigu comprenant au moins deux commutateurs pour exécuter des actions de clavier, au moins un des deux commutateurs étant un commutateur de balayage. Le commutateur de balayage peut modifier au moins une caractéristique sélectionnée parmi un groupe comprenant : a) une fonction d'au moins un commutateur parmi les deux commutateurs ou plus du clavier ambigu; et b) un mode d'un second commutateur de balayage du clavier ambigu.
