Description

Microwriter typewriter made by Microwriter Ltd of London. The Microwriter was invented by Cy Endfield, a US businesman, scientist and film director. It has a chorded keyboard which can be much smaller than the usual QWERTY keyboard, enabling it to be used with portable and compact computers. With les keys than the QWERTY, functions are carried out by a combination of keys. Chorded keyboards can be used for one-handed typing and so are useful for the disabled. They are also much easier to use when on the move, for example walking, or on a train.
