Eight different designs for an on-screen keyboard were compared. Some of the factors manipulated included QWERTY vs. alphabetic layout, key-caps appearance vs. none, and mouseover feedback or not. We found that a design featuring two complete QWERTY keyboards (upper and lower case) yielded the best performance, but the designs that looked the most like a standard keyboard were preferred.
