Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical Commission)

form the specialized system for worldwide standardization. National bodies that are members of ISO or IEC

participate in the development of International Standards through technical committees established by the

respective organization to deal with particular fields of technical activity. ISO and IEC technical committees

collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other international organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in

liaison with ISO and IEC, also take part in the work. In the field of information technology, ISO and IEC have

established a joint technical committee, ISO/IEC JTC 1.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 3.

The main task of the joint technical committee is to prepare International Standards. Draft International Standards

adopted by the joint technical committee are circulated to national bodies for voting. Publication as an International

Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the national bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this part of ISO/IEC 9995 may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO and IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

ISO/IEC 9995-2 was prepared by Joint Technical Committee ISO/IEC JTC 1, Information technology,

Subcommittee SC 35, User interfaces.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO/IEC 9995-2:1994), which has been technically

revised.

ISO/IEC 9995 consists of the following parts, under the general title Information technology — Keyboard layouts for

text and office systems:
— Part 1: General principles governing keyboard layouts
— Part 2: Alphanumeric section

— Part 3: Complementary layouts of the alphanumeric zone of the alphanumeric section

— Part 4: Numeric section
— Part 5: Editing section
— Part 6: Function section
— Part 7: Symbols used to represent functions
— Part 8: Allocation of letters to the keys of a numeric keypad

Avant-propos

L'ISO (Organisation internationale de normalisation) est une fédération mondiale d'organismes nationaux de

normalisation (comités membres de l'ISO). L'élaboration des Normes internationales est en général confiée

aux comités techniques de l'ISO. Chaque comité membre intéressé par une étude a le droit de faire partie du

comité technique créé à cet effet. Les organisations internationales, gouvernementales et non

gouvernementales, en liaison avec l'ISO participent également aux travaux. L'ISO collabore étroitement avec

la Commission électrotechnique internationale (CEI) en ce qui concerne la normalisation électrotechnique.

Les Normes internationales sont rédigées conformément aux règles données dans les Directives ISO/CEI,

Partie 2.

La tâche principale des comités techniques est d'élaborer les Normes internationales. Les projets de Normes

internationales adoptés par les comités techniques sont soumis aux comités membres pour vote. Leur

publication comme Normes internationales requiert l'approbation de 75 % au moins des comités membres

votants.

L'attention est appelée sur le fait que certains des éléments du présent document peuvent faire l'objet de

droits de propriété intellectuelle ou de droits analogues. L'ISO ne saurait être tenue pour responsable de ne

pas avoir identifié de tels droits de propriété et averti de leur existence.

L'ISO/CEI 9995-2 a été élaborée par le comité technique ISO/TC JTC 1, Technologies de l'information,

sous-comité SC 35, Interfaces utilisateur.

Cette deuxième édition annule et remplace la première édition (ISO/CEI 9995-2:1994), qui a fait l'objet d'une

révision technique.

L'ISO/CEI 9995 comprend les parties suivantes, présentées sous le titre général Technologies de

l'information — Disposition des claviers conçus pour la bureautique:
 Partie 1: Principes généraux pour la disposition des claviers

5 Agencement et emplacement

Le module alphanumérique est situé à droite et au-dessous d'une partie du module de fonctions, et à gauche

des modules d'édition et numérique, voir l'ISO/CEI 9995-1; il s'étend de la colonne 99 à la colonne 15.

6 Division en zones
Le module alphanumérique est divisé en zones comme l'illustre la Figure 1.
Échelle non représentative — Traits sont donnés à titre indicatif uniquement.
Figure 1 — Division du module alphanumérique en zones

ZA0 correspond à la zone alphanumérique du module alphanumérique. Les zones ZA1, ZA2, ZA3 et ZA4 sont

les zones de fonction du module. L'agencement, le nombre et l'emplacement des touches ainsi que

l'affectation de caractères graphiques et de plusieurs fonctions aux touches sont spécifiés dans les Articles 7

et 8 de la présente partie de l'ISO/CEI 9995.
7 Agencement et emplacement des touches dans la zone alphanumérique du
module alphanumérique

Les touches graphiques et la barre d'espacement doivent se situer dans la zone alphanumérique ZA0.

7.1 Agencement général du clavier

Les touches graphiques et la barre d'espacement doivent être disposées comme illustré à la Figure 2.

La zone alphanumérique du module alphanumérique doit comporter la barre d'espacement ainsi que 45

touches graphiques au minimum. Les touches doivent être agencées comme suit:
 la barre d'espacement dans la rangée A, au minimum de l'emplacement A03 à A07;
 10 touches au minimum dans la rangée B, de l'emplacement B00 à B11;
 11 touches au minimum dans la rangée C, de l'emplacement C01 à C15;
 12 touches au minimum dans la rangée D, de l'emplacement D01 à D15;
 12 touches au minimum dans la rangée E, de l'emplacement E00 à E15.

Cet agencement concorde avec les dispositions ISO et nationales, et offre suffisamment de souplesse pour

permettre d'autres versions étendues, notamment en raison de prescriptions linguistiques nationales. La limite

précise de la zone ZA0 dépend du nombre de touches et de leur configuration.

48 touches graphiques sont requises pour la mise en œuvre des dispositions complémentaires,

conformément à l'ISO/CEI 9995-3.
7.2 Agencement de clavier harmonisé à 48 touches graphiques

Les touches et la barre d'espacement d'un clavier harmonisé à 48 touches graphiques doivent être situées

comme indiqué à la Figure 3.

Les 48 touches graphiques et la barre d'espacement doivent se trouver dans la zone alphanumérique du

module alphanumérique. Les touches doivent être agencées comme suit:
 la barre d'espacement dans la rangée A, de l'emplacement A03 à A07 au minimum;

 10 touches dans la rangée B, de l'emplacement B01 à B10, ou, s'il n'y a pas de touche à l'emplacement

E13, 11 touches, de l'emplacement B00 à B10;
 12 touches dans la rangée C, de l'emplacement C01 à C12;
 12 touches dans la rangée D, de l'emplacement D01 à D12;

 13 touches dans la rangée E, de l'emplacement E00 à E12, ou, s'il n'y a pas de touche à l'emplacement

B00, 14 touches, de l'emplacement E00 à E13.
