Question Answer
Command Line Interface Users type instructions using a special set of words and symbols. Used in the early days of computing and is now only really suitable for skilled IT users as commands need to be known
Menu-Driven Interface A menu of options is displayed and the user selects one of them. More user-friendly than the Command-Line Interface as commands do not need to be remembered.
Graphical User Interface (GUI) Small pictures are used to represent options that the user can select
Voice Interface A microphone is used, into which the user speaks a command to the computer. Sophisticated software analyses the speech patterns and executes the given command.
Special Devices Special devices include things like braille keyboards, 'concept keyboards' with overlays over the keyboard (Like on McDonalds' counters), touch screens, puff-suck and foot devices to allow people with no arms to operate computers.
