Claviature Ergonomic Layouts provide a key arrangement optimized
for on-screen keyboards and pen input in different languages.
They are computer designed to minimize input time using Fitt's law
describing efficiency of keyboard depending on letter pair frequencies
in different languages and distances between them.
Advanced mathematical methods of optimization were used to calculate
optimal keyboard layouts.
For example, at English Ergonomic Layout practically all
letters are placed at just 6 buttons, frequent digraphs like th, re, er, nd, ng, es
and 2-letters word like he, in, an, of, or are placed at adjacent positions
at the Claviature. Moreover, letters of three most frequent 3-letter words
the, and, for are also located together.
Claviature provides simple input of spaces by horizontal left strokes at any position -
this also increase entry speed. We estimate that English Claviature Ergonomic layout
is about 50% faster then QWERTY layout for both US and UK English.
Claviature Ergonomic Layouts are calculated for English, Spanish, German, French and Italian
languages and you can download them here.
