Original Press Release:

LANCOR Technologies Introduces World's First Multi-Function Enabled Single-Layout Multilingual Computer Keyboards

Boston, MA - Apr 22, 2005 (PRN): LANCOR Technologies, a division of Lagos Analysis Corporation today announced the release of its KONYIN Physical Multilingual Keyboard - The First Truly Complete Computer Keyboard designed to accommodate combined character-sets for Multiple Language Groups on a single keyboard layout using LANCOR Technologies multi-function enabled kbd driver. The new physical keyboard is based on the QWERTY layout with additional spaces for twenty-six (26) alphabets and twenty-one (21) combining diacritical marks from any combination of languages. The new multi-function enabled kbd driver technology is particularly appropriate for most countries with more than one Official Language, and Institutions that deals in multiple languages at the same time. The new kbd driver technology does away with the need to switch keyboard layouts from one language to another during regular typing. Most multilingual input devises in the market today use the virtual multi-layout keyboard approach which allows users to switch from one language layout to another in other to access character-sets for various languages. These virtual keyboard layouts cannot be considered as true multilingual input devices, because users can only input one or two language character-sets at a time; and users have to understand and remember multiple combination keystrokes and shortcuts during typing. These problems have been eliminated with the introduction of the first multi-function enabled single-layout multilingual physical keyboard from LANCOR Technologies. Simply put, KONYIN multilingual keyboard users do not have to switch keyboard layout to type in any language. The keyboard truly does not change how users type today, and does not use the "dead key" typing process.
