Force-graph

A force-graph is a good way to help imagine how a switch might feel to the press. Many reputable manufacturers publish such graphs, either in their documentation or in their patents.

Clicky
Switch Type icon
Click-bar
Clicky switches, as the name suggests, make an audible click when activated. Click bars are a Kailh brand innovation and have a small metal spring "bar" that creates the click noise - which can be heard on both the down and up stroke of a key press.

Volume

This is a loud switch. Not recommended for use in an office environment or others that don't appreciated a loud keyboard ;)
Notes

This switch is fairly clicky, along the sound level of clicking a pen open and closed with each key press.
