For this purpose, first and second key tops (15, 16) are provided, whereof the respective pressure centers are set at positions that are offset from the pressure centers of the respective press type switches (12), and a lever member (17) is provided between each of the press type switches (12) and each of the first and second key tops (15, 16). Between each of the press type switches (12) and each of the lever members (17), a diaphragm (18) is provided having a pressing portion (18a) where the corresponding press type switch (12) is pressed down when the corresponding lever member (17) is being pressed by either of the first and second key tops (15, 16).
