Sentence Hot Key for Writers and Bloggers Using Arduino

Introduction

In this tutorial, We are going to make a breadboard circuit which will act as extended keyboard for you. You can directly type in a sentence or word just by pushing a button connected to an Arduino Leonardo or Due. The "Sentence hot key for writers and bloggers" can not only print a word or sentence but also can send ASCII characters like 'space','enter','backspace' etc so you don't have to type repeated words again and again. You can use this circuit to type in wordpad, notepad, Microsoft word or any other text editor using Arduino.

For this tutorial, we will need the following components:

  • Half Size Breadboard - 1
  • 10K Resistor - 5
  • Arduino Leonardo Micro - 1
  • Push Button - 5
  • Single Core Wire
  • Wire Stripper - 1
  • Nose Plier - 1
  • Micro USB Cable - 1

If you don't have the components, you can buy it from the below links (Most of the general components like LED and wire, you can easily get from local market. I am just listing out the important and specific components).

For USA :

Push Button : 10 Pcs 2Pin Momentary Tactile Tact Push Button Switch Black 6x6x5mm
Half Size Breadboard : microtivity IB400 400-point Experiment Breadboard
