Variant of a Model M Keypad

The IBM Screen Reader/2 Keypad was the peripheral component of the IBM Screen Reader/2, the first GUI-based screen reader designed to help people with hard or lack of sight access a PC running IBM Operating System/2, PC-DOS/MS-DOS, or Microsoft Windows. It takes the form of small Model M that resembles a numeric keypad, featuring ten numeric keys, an asterisk key, a number sign help, and two two-unit vertical keys reading "HELP" and "STOP". The internal assembly takes several production values from Model F designs with individual barrels, foam padding, and no plastic rivets holding the assembly together.
