Abstract

Computer terminals with keyboards use shifting for upper and lower characters because the keyboards are based on mechanical typewriters. One of the most annoying actions to be performed by a terminal operator, who is not a proficient typist, is shifting to type upper case characters. This article describes methods which provide a more convenient way of keying upper case characters.
