majority of elementary school students will not be able to touch
keyboard by the time they graduate, and this condemns them to
hunt and peck all their life, because this habit is very difficult
to break. The reasons, as discussed
more fully elsewhere
in this site, are the complexity of the task, the way computer
applications operate, and especially, the keyboard.
We guarantee that with the TACTUS Keyboard, your students will
be effective touch keyboarders when they graduate.
TACTUS is a revolutionary keyboard.
In TACTUS, tiny ridges are applied to the edge of certain keys.
The ridges are organised to form a "box" that holds
the fingers in place and automatically allows them to locate
the desired key. Studies show that, with TACTUS, one can learn
to touch type three times faster than with a normal keyboard.
Worldwide patents pending.
A study with children of 8 years of age has shown that the improvement
in the touch typing skills of the test group, who used the TACTUS
keyboard, was 3 times greater than the improvement in the group
who used a standard keyboard. To
