Study of Man-Machine Communications Systems for Disabled Persons (The Handicapped). Volume VI. Final Report.
The instruction manual contains lessons for teaching severely physically and/or neurologically handicapped students to use the seven-key Cybertype electric writing machine. Unlike the 14-key keyboard, which requires bilateral coordination in arms, legs, or other parts of the body, the seven-key keyboard requires the use of only one part of the body, such as a single limb. The seven-key keyboards are operated by touching two keys, constituting a pair, sequentially. The instruction manual explains the possible configurations of Cybertype keyboards and the codes which identify the different keying positions. Fifteen lesson plans for seven-key dual-sequential keyboard are presented. Teaching guidelines are accompanied by training exercises and practice sentences. Over half the document consists of supplementary typing exercises and practice material. (See also EC 030 060, EC 050 266-050 268, EC 050 270.) (KW)
