Interface: A software or a hardware that connects a hardware with a software (or connects two software, or two hardware).

 

Keyboard driver: This is the program which determines the function of a key on the computer keyboard — i.e. when you press a key, what letter or symbol will show up on the monitor or what other task will be performed (like saving files, copying texts, etc).

 

Keyboard interface: Each computer has a standard keyboard driver. However, when another program (driver) is given a set of instructions to change or modify the way a standard keyboard functions to perform other, much needed tasks, this new program is called an interface. For instance, the “E” key will produce “e” or “E” on the monitor. But when a computer user writes Bangla in BornoSoft, the interface changes the output of the “E” keystroke to produce the Bangla e () or e-kar (-কার)  according to need. The original keyboard driver is being modified here to change the specific function of the keyboard.



A keyboard driver may function only at the program level (e.g. a word processor). In that case, it is a part of a stand-alone application [e.g. BornoSoft Accent (previous name: BornoSoft Bangla2000)] and the driver cannot be used outside that program.

 

On the other hand, if the keyboard driver functions at the system level then it can be used in any program of that system — e.g. the BornoSoft Keyboard Interface. You can use this with any application program for Windows.
