Who Invented Keyboard?

The history of the keyboard is surprisingly complicated.
The Qwerty key arrangement was invented to make it more difficult to type by the standard method, but it didn’t start this way. It originally positioned letters in alphabetical order and measured “keys” for length instead of the number of times a letter appeared on a typewriter.
Principal designers included Christopher Sholes, James Densmore, Carlos Glidden, Cushing Sorenson with input from Thomas Edison and Henry Mill. In 1873 Samuel Morse commits funds for producing a few trial keyboards based on four different types of layouts-ruled with lines over bars under letters top case top left side 24 key at right hand with 42 characters per line an uncrowned one keyboard.
