Explanation:
Hello
You're really into furniture this morning aren't you! It's obviously furniture composition software you're talking about here. The dattilo is a surface designed to support a keyboard. They used to be called "typist extensions" in the olden days, but in these modern times...
An alternative definition could be "keyboard surface".
