The need for deviations from the widely accepted QWERTY keyboard layout of usual office typewriters or workstations has been discussed in our twin paper (Gilad et al. 1986). In this paper we examine a related issue: How to customize any keyboard to a given application, cheaply and effectively. We here discuss this issue and establish why such customization is necessary and how modern technology and keyboard design solve half the problem.
