iPad keyboard marks?

Just wondering what the point is to the marks underneath the J and keys? I know on a physical keyboard they're used for the blind or weak sighted but on a touch screen device they're surely just for visual purposes?

My mistake. I thought i was in the correct forum. I'm tethered so maybe it didn't load correctly coming from tniphone forum to the iPad.

Blind and weak sighted????

On a real keyboard they are used for touch typing. Most typists don't look at the keyboard to position their hands. They type by feel.

On the screen it is for positioning the hand just the same. Also it looks cool....

It shows Apple's point on detail. On another note, I should point that one word responses are against forum rules…
