TACTUS Keyboard is especially useful in the following situations:
and High Schools
Touch keyboarding classes in schools are generally not frequent
enough to allow students to learn touch typing. In the great
majority of cases, students leaving school, know "how to"
touch-type but they are not actually "capable to"
touch-type. The TACTUS Keyboard allows the students to become
effective touch-typists by the time they leave school. Teachers
of students as young as 8 years of age, have used the TACTUS
Keyboard and found it superior to the standard keyboard.
Colleges and Touch-typing Schools
the TACTUS Keyboard greatly facilitates learning to touch-type.
Students using the TACTUS keyboard will learn to touch-type
faster than students using an ordinary keyboard.
Many professional people such as lawyers, managers, writers,
journalists, use a computer but do not spend the majority of
their professional time typing. These people are unlikely to
spend sufficient time at the keyboard building their touch-typing
skills. The TACTUS Keyboard allows them to touch-type effectively
even if the time that they spend at the keyboard is small.
Heavy Mouse Users
This is the case of users who need to move the hand away from
the keyboard frequently to operate the mouse, such as graphic
designers and the like. These users will find the TACTUS Keyboard
very effective. The ridges on the keys make it much easier and
faster for the fingers to relocate on the home keys than on
a regular keyboard. (However, note: the Tactus Keyboard is not
yet available for the Mac).
Data Entry Operators
Using the TACTUS keyboard will help data entry operators who
handle large volumes of data per day to increase productivity
and reduce fatigue.
People Visually Impaired
The TACTUS Keyboard has been tested by several organisations
for the visually impaired and found to be very effective to
train users who are visually impaired to touch type. The reason
for this is that the TACTUS Keyboard has twenty feedback points
in lieu of the customary two in the alphabetical section of
the keyboard. This makes the keyboard much easier to learn for
people who are visually impaired.
People with Diabetic Nephropathy
People suffering from diabetic nephropathy, who have reduced
feeling in the hands, have found the TACTUS Keyboard easier
to use because of the clear feedback that the ridges provide.
