A keyboard was an input device which uses an arrangement of buttons or keys, to act as mechanical levers or electronic switches. A keyboard typically had characters engraved or printed on the keys and each press of a key typically corresponded to a single written symbol. However, to produce some symbols required pressing and holding several keys simultaneously or in sequence. While most keyboard keys produced letters, numbers or signs (characters); other keys or simultaneous key presses can produce actions or computer commands.
Other keyboards were used to create music. When a key was pressed, a specific tone was produced. At least one model of such a keyboard had an attached display that showed the notes pressed.
Behind the scenesEdit
In Holocron Heist, the premiere episode for the second season of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series, an alphabetic keyboard was shown in the Jedi Archives. It featured the 26 basic letters of the Aurebesh (from Aurek to Zerek), but the 8 additional letters (from Cherek to Thesh) were omitted. Additionally, the keyboard featured no punctuation marks, and its keys were displayed upside down relative to the user.
