The Kinesis Three Pedal Foot Switch is an efficient way to take advantage of the unique foot input options provided with all Kinesis Advantage Contoured keyboards. Default actions are "Keypad Shift", "Keypad Enter", and "Shift". The "Keypad Shift" action turns on the embedded keypad layer as long as the pedal is held down. If the Keypad Toggle function key is tapped first, then the "Keypad Shift" pedal will turn OFF the embedded keypad layer while the pedal is held down. With a programmable Contoured keyboard, the foot switch may be configured to perform any user-defined keystroke or macro! Contoured keyboard users often find a foot switch boosts productivity by enabling instant access to shortcuts (macros) or remapped keys in the "embedded" (keypad) layer. Modifiers are often useful foot switch actions, to reduce the awkward reaches often required to produce key combinations. Number crunchers (especially bookkeepers and accountants) usually find a foot switch provides a huge productivity boost with a Contoured keyboard. With the center pedal, you get instant access to the embedded numeric keypad, without moving your hands from the home row of keys.
