Description

The Uni is a minimal, unibody-split-ortholinear keyboard made for stenography. It is a pre-built keyboard, meaning there is no assembly required and works right out of the box with Plover. The keyboard has full N-key rollover (NKRO) and uses QMK firmware.

You can type any word, symbol, number, command, shortcut, or emoji that you want with stenography!

Usage

To learn how to install and set up with Plover, please see the Documentation.

To use the keyboard, you must have the latest version of Plover installed on your Windows, Mac, or Linux computer, otherwise, the keyboard strokes will not be recognized and cannot be interpreted by the computer.

Layout

The Uni uses the English stenotype layout with outer thumb number bar, split S, and split asterisk keys. The number keys are located on the outside of each of your thumbs to allow a compact and minimalistic design.

The left and right halves are spaced apart horizontally to provide better ergonomics for the shoulders and wrists. Additionally, the thumb keys are spaced apart vertically to provide better ergonomics for the thumbs. The space between the bottom row and thumb keys is equivalent to the space between home-row and spacebar on a normal keyboard.
