ErgoFlex Sections can be separated up to 7 feet apart, as each section is
separated with a completely distinct base which allows the ErgoFlex keyboard
to conform to people's differing shoulder widths. Unlike the Comfort Original
or ErgoMagic keyboards, the ErgoFlex is a FLAT design.
Each of the three sections can be placed at any angle, effectively providing
rotation 90 degrees to the left and right.
PROGRAMMING, MACROS, & KEY MAPPING / RE-MAPPING
Mapping and Key Map Functions
Remapping (a.k.a. "re-mapping") mode allows you to customize and
map your keyboard (i.e. reassign virtual keys to different physical
locations). This can be useful for software applications that require the
repeated use of one or more specific keys. It is also useful for consumers
who simply find it more convenient to have various keys rearranged. And yes, every
key on the keyboard is programmable. We'd call it a "key
differentiating" feature - but then we'd be "off the map"
Individually programmable macro keys
A macro is multiple keystrokes stored in a single key. Pressing that key
plays back those multiple keystrokes. If you find yourself typing a
particular series of characters repeatedly, you can program that series into
a macro key. You simply select a key to represent the series of characters.
You may also program macros to reassign (remap) keys on your keyboard. In
addition, you can use a macro to exit a program and enter another program
quickly. A series of macros can be stored as a 'macro file' to your
computer's hard drive. Each Macro file can hold up to approximately 1378
keystrokes. All 1378 keystrokes can be assigned to one macro or as many as 94
macros, using any keys except those listed below, with varying numbers of
keystrokes per macro.
Left or Right Space Bar as Backspace
For added convenience, the ErgoFlex Keyboard allows you to program either the
left or right space bar to backspace. This feature will allow you to program
either the left or right space bar to have dual function as a space bar or a
backspace. After programming the key, the space bar will function as a space
bar if you press the space bar once. The space bar will function as a
backspace if you hold the space bar down.
Programmable Repeat Rate Value
The repeat rate value (RRV) is the rate at which a key repeats itself when
held down. "Delay until repeat" governs the first repetition;
"repeat rate" governs later repetitions. This can be manipulated by
certain operating systems as well.

ABOUT THE USB VERSION
Compatible with PC, APPLE, And SUN Type 6 keyboard...
Added Microsoft Window Key(s), all programming features are saved on the
keyboard (flash memory) and are not reliant on the computer memory, repeat
rate is controlled by the keyboard or the PC, middle section of the keyboard
can emulate the "gray keys" in the numeric pad, and best of all,
100% compliance with all USB systems.
A user with Windows OS will "get" a default PC keyboard with
Windows keys; the same keyboard plugged into an APPLE USB will function exactly
like an Apple USB keyboard (with Apple & Option keys in the right places,
even a Power Key to cold boot the OS/box); same keyboard plugged into a Sun
system, default configuration is set as a Sun Type 6 keyboard - and the user
will enjoy all 12 "F" (function) keys as well.
NOTE — Due to the popularity of the enhancements listed above,
now all CKS (whether serial, PS/2, or USB) keyboards have these same
added performance and compatability upgrades!
