  • 4. Advantages DisadvantagesThey allow us to enter in correct The Qwerty and Dvorakdata, checking the monitor as we keyboards ease depends on thego along user.Data can be entered quickly It isn’t as quick as using a MICR or OMR.It is a strong device (Robust) Takes up space.The concept keyboard can be ofparticular use to people withdisabilities Back to Input Devices
  • 5. Advantages DisadvantagesThey take up less space and Due to their small size,are easy to carry around. entering the numbers may be difficult.Easier to hide them in case ofentering a PIN Back to Input Devices
  • 6. Advantages DisadvantagesIt is faster to select an option using It is easy to damage them.a mouse as opposed to a keyboard.They increase the speed of It may be difficult for a person withnavigation disabilities.They take up less space compared They take up more time if you wereto keyboards. to enter long passages of data. Their purpose is to make choices Back to Input from a menu; clicking. Devices
  • 7. Advantages DisadvantagesLike a mouse, it allows you May be found difficult forto quickly chose an option. people to use.Again like a mouse, it Difficult to control as theyallows quick navigation. are sensitive.Hand no wire to them, built Again like a mouse,into laptops. entering data with a lot of words can be difficult and time consuming.

  • 11. Advantages DisadvantagesIt is faster to choose an Like a mouse and trackeroption using a joy stick. ball, it is difficult to use when it comes to typing long passages.Are able to control objects Difficulty may arise whenin 3D. trying to control the pointer. Back to Input Devices
  • 12. Advantages DisadvantagesFaster entry of option Screen is flat so continual use may result in RSI.Much more easier to selectyour optionMuch user friendly forpeople with disabilitiesLess likely to select anincorrect option. Back to Input Devices
  • 13. Advantages DisadvantagesFaster entry of data Damaged strip means that data entry needs to be done manually, reducing speed.Data entry is accurate Loss of card could cause problems such as no entry to restricted areas.It is more secureCan be used in security Back to Inputsystems Devices
  • 14. Advantages DisadvantagesCan be immediately updated If the card falls in the hands of a hacker, they can access all your details and can use it for identity theft.Are less damaged than magnetic stripreaders due to regular use.The data that is entered is more securethan a magnetic stripSecurity reasons: no entry without card. Back to Input Devices
  • 15. Advantages DisadvantagesIt is very secure because it will If PIN is forgotten the card isnot work without the PIN almost useless; the transaction gets cancelled.Time effective : using cash or Great care must b taken whencheques would require a longer entering the PIN.time.Chips are more indestructiblethan magnetic strips.
