Keyboards have been used on typewriters and as input devices to computers and many keyboards have been proposed in order to improve their performance. Some glove-based input devices to computers have been also proposed for compactness and flexibility. In this paper, an input device to computers consisting of a pair of gloves is proposed. The keys of the proposed gloves are mounted on the fingers of gloves and their chording methods resemble those of a Braille keyboard. Since the Braille representation for numbers and characters is efficient and has been well established for every language, the proposed input device may be one of good input devices to computers. Furthermore, since the Braille has been used for visually impaired people, the proposed one can be easily used as an input device to computers for them.
