Keyboard Overlay

This keyboard overlay has a backing portion 1 made of a resilient foam material. Suitable apertures 2 are provided to allow the overlay to be positioned over a keyboard so that the tops of the keys are in close proximity to the indicia bearing sheet 3.

Sheet 3 can be a separate flexible material or it can be made from the same material as the backing portion 1. In the case where sheet 3 is made from some other plastic material, it may be desirable to hinge the individual key areas. This can be done by cutting along the left, right and bottom as shown in the detail of the "LOCK" position.
