Hi all, it's great to see how active this forum is. Now I'm having a question myself and I'm hoping you have some comments on this:
How do you combine "30-60 minutes daily Dvorak training" with a 10-hours-per-day typing lifestyle?
(This has been touched .)
There are obvious reasons for using Qwerty (mostly old habits; and being able to use keyboards on other machines), and there are several good reasons for using Dvorak instead, especially for the TS crowd (less reaching, more comfort and accuracy). My problem is that I want
to switch to Dvorak because I type so much but at the same time it's so damn hard
to switch because I'm solidly stuck in 20-year-old Qwerty habits (and has Qwerty...).
Unfortunately I'm not too good at disciplined Dvorak training (though the is truly great!). I tried for a week to use only Dvorak, with the typing tutor a few times a day and pick-typing my way through the rest of the day, but the extremely slow typing speed is putting me off. I find that whenever I need to type any real amounts, I fall back to Qwerty -- and because my TS is still set to Dvorak, I'm actually typing this
on a real keyboard (otherwise used by my fiancèe at this computer)!
So what I'm looking for is an effective method of abandoning Qwerty for good without losing my patience.
