The computer keyboard is an input device, modeled partially after the typewriter keyboard. The arrangement of keys and buttons act as mechanical levers or electronic switches. A keyboard generally contains characters printed or engraved on the keys. Each key press matches to a single written symbol. It is also possible to produce a number of symbols, which require the simultaneous pressing and holding down of several keys or in sequence. Normally, a keyboard represents letters and numbers but may be made to represent symbols or different languages other than English.
