A survey of alternative keyboard users is in progress as part of research
being performed at San Jose State University for a Masters Thesis in Human
Factors and Ergonomics. This survey builds upon laboratory research
findings and queries actual users about alternative keyboard acquisition,
setup, use, benefits, satisfaction, and recommendations for improvement.
Insight gained from this study will help improve instructional, research
and design efforts in the field.
Can you help with identifying users of alternative keyboards, such as the
Microsoft Natural, Kinesis, Lexmark, Comfort, DataHand, etc.? Please either
pass this information on to the users or have them contact me directly.
Any assistance you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
