This study examined performance and acceptance effects of lack of kinesthetic and tactile feedback from the keyboard in a typing task with two subject groups of differing skill level: touch typists and casual users. Subjects' objective performance (e.g., speed, accuracy, throughput) and subjective acceptance (questionnaire) was evaluated for both a conventional full travel keyboard and a prototype piezoelectric flat keyboard which lacked familiar kinesthetic and tactile feedback.
