Another approach would be to determine why
the top row of pushbuttons doesn't have the bottom row's
problem and apply that knowledge to the design of
the bottom row.
The pushbuttons and labels in the top row are
divided visually into groups, so it is easier
to see the pattern of labels and pushbuttons.
Also, the labels are narrower than the pushbuttons
in the top row. This makes the labels
look less like pushbuttons. Thus, making the
labels narrower in the bottom row would not only
put the label closer to its corresponding pushbutton,
but also help divide the pushbuttons and labels into
