Definition

The keys listed below are virtual, which means that they are not the physical keys or buttons on an attached keyboard or device, but an abstract mapping of those keys that may be connected to hardware that provides either those keys and buttons or an interface that simulates their physical behavior (such as an onscreen touch keyboard).
