Tech Wrap-Up 6-23-2022, which is National Typewriter Day. A typewriter is a mechanical or electromechanical machine with an array of keys. Each key represents an individual letter, number, or punctuation. When depressed, a typewriter key causes a character to display on paper by striking an inked ribbon. The QWERTY keyboard layout, developed for typewriters in the 1870s, remains a standard for computer keyboards today.
