Abstract

An accelerating mode of operation is described for the keystroke action on alphanumeric or text keyboards for display terminals. This gives increased user performance for such operation as cursor control, ruling and deleting characters. Two different implementations are possible, the Decreasing Time Interval method and the Increasing Spatial Interval method. The latter method is described herein.
