The Alphabet Keyboard

The initiative provides an easy tool for teaching to read and write in training classes, preschool and in the youngest classes. More than 95% of the letters in a book or in a newspaper are lowercase letters, while on a standard keyboard there are only uppercase letter. It causes problems for many children in schooling age, since they have difficulties in recognizing the letters when they start working with computers. The solution is a keyboard where the letter keys are colored, so it's easy to distinguish from the other keys. Red for vowels and blue consonants. The individual letters are given in both uppercase and lowercase version on the same key.
