Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) November 7, 2007
Three decades is a long time to spend in front of a computer. And though it may wreak havoc on your eyesight, it will show you the inefficiencies of computers and keyboards.
When those inefficiencies drove Wayne Wilson up the wall, he patented his own unique keyboard with a tab button on the right-hand side.
Wilson has spent 32 years doing data entry, including 21 years as a CPA. And those years have taught him a few things about the typical keyboard set up.
"When you're doing data entry all day, you start to notice how inefficient the typical keyboard setup is," Wilson said. "You're entering all this data with your right hand, and then you have to hit the tab key with your left hand to switch fields. It's much more time-consuming than it needs to be. Because of this difficulty, people have to develop their own routines."
For two years, Wilson looked for a more efficient keyboard, but couldn't find one.
"Microsoft has a patent on a keyboard with the tab key up where the NumLock key is," Wilson said. "I built one of those keyboards and it tested slower than normal."
With other keyboard-finding avenues exhausted, Wilson decided to make his own. He created a keyboard that has the tab key to the right of the number pad, so that people handling data entry can do it all with their right hands.
"Based on our testing, this keyboard improves data entry speed by a 15.6 percent to 27 percent increase," Wilson said. "That's a lot of time saved. And the more time our testers used the keyboard, the more they increased productivity.
"It doesn't matter if you're an accountant, a secretary or just somebody who does data entry on a regular basis. This is something that can increase your efficiency at work, and you'll be able to get a lot more done in a lot less time."
