Type like you talk: in words and syllables rather than letters.


Fast and precise

With Veyboard-typing you simultaneously press several characters, just as you would a chord on a piano or a keyboard. The outcome of this single stroke on a Veyboard is a complete word or syllable.

Superior ergonomics
The scientifically designed and original and innovative layout of the Veyboard keys creates optimal ergonomics.
Chord typing — with minimal movements of all ten fingers — furthermore results in a major reduction in muscle tension, and thus diminishes the risk of developing Repetitive Strain Injury (R.S.I.), also known as C.A.N.S (Complaints of Arm, Neck and Shoulder).

Nico Berkelmans (also from the Netherlands) joins den Outer for further linguistic development of the Tachotype


Tachotype becomes ‘electronic’ thanks to Herman Schweigman and Rudolf Nitzsche and renamed Velotype

The Veyboard gets a new design thanks to FLEX/theINNOVATION lab in Delft
