Abstract ISO/IEC 9995 defines a framework for the layout of all alphanumeric and numeric keyboards across the widest spectrum of today's and upcoming applications using keyboards. The functions to be performed by keyboards are grouped into three categories that correspond to the main physical sections of the keyboard.

Application of ISO/IEC 9995 in the design of keyboards will provide the user with a unified, predictable user-machine interface by dividing the keyboard into functional areas and sections and allocating functions to keys.

ISO/IEC 9995-7:2009 defines symbols for functions found on any type of numeric, alphanumeric or composite keyboards. Each of these symbols is intended to be considered as universal and non-language related equivalent of names for the function they represent. Names of functions and descriptions are given in English and French.
L'ISO/CEI 9995 définit une structure pour la disposition de tous les claviers alphanumériques et numériques parmi le plus vaste éventail d'applications actuelles et à venir utilisant des claviers. Les fonctions exécutées par les claviers sont groupées en trois catégories qui correspondent aux principaux modules physiques du clavier.

L'application de l'ISO/CEI 9995 dans la conception des claviers va fournir une interface utilisateur-machine uniforme et prévisible en divisant le clavier en zones et modules, et en affectant des fonctions aux touches.

L'ISO/CEI 9995-7:2009 décrit les symboles, relatifs aux fonctions, rencontrés sur tout type de clavier numérique, alphanumérique ou composite. Chacun de ces symboles est destiné à être considéré comme l'équivalent universel, et non rattaché à une langue particulière, du nom de la fonction qu'il représente. Les noms des fonctions et leurs descriptions sont donnés en anglais et en français.
