What's that about?
Look on your keyboard on your computer it is there to.
Just to make it look like a real keyboard serves no function on a virtual keyboard. On real one it guides your hands so you can know where you are on the keyboard
I just noticed it's on the "F" key as well.
These are known as the home keys but you cannot rest your hands on the keyboard, so what gives?
It appears they are just for looks.
And the F key. To look like a real keyboard. Some people use the bumps to feel around while touch typing so they don't have to look down. Doesn't really serve a purpose other than looks on the virtual one though
F key has it too. On some traditional keyboards, that is a physical raised line that helps touch type. Maybe a sign for haptic feedback in a future device?
You see them outta the corner of your eye sublimanaly
My eyes are round. No corners.
Did anyone mention that it was on the F key too?
lol those under lines are for tactile feedback for home row positioning on regular keyboards (fingers will automatically find their place on the keyboard without looking), its just stupid to put it on a touch screen keyboard.
if you close your eyes and feel the J and F key, you can feel the ridge
so blind people can use the iPad too !
if you can't feel it, then there is something wrong with your keyboard, and have to do a full restore
omg, are you really seriously asking that question ?
Apple's attention to detail strikes again.
Dang...its on the F key too.
If you properly learned to type from a class, they would tell you that your index finger need to be on the F and J keys. It's for you mind to know where to put the index keys without looking down.
ASDF (for your four fingers with Thumb on space bar)
it is obviously some of the guys here skip their typing class on college
It's always a good idea to make sure your message doesn't have a typo when you insult other people's education.
This has nothing to do with typing skills. It has to do with why a tactile indicator is on a touchscreen without haptic feedback.
Actually the vast majority of people that haven't taken a formal typing class would never know that F and J had a special function on a real keyboard. The OP is obviously one of those people.
Perhaps you skipped reading comprehension?
Speaking of reading, I was one of the original people to reply, with the explanation. I just didn't use the opportunity to insult people.
I never took a formal typing class. But the keyboard I am using (Saitek Eclipse II) has those indicators, as do many numeric keypads. It doesn't take a typing class. Regardless, there's no reason to insult people.
No it isn't. Just like a a regular keyboard, it works through visual notifications as well. Just because you can't feel the keyboard doesn't mean the notches don't help people know which finger goes there. Plus, why shouldn't they make the keyboard look like a real keyboard?
