It makes no sense, in this age of electronic keyboards to be typing on an old fashioned QWERTY keyboard. Long before I ever heard of the Dvorak keyboard I was taught the pimitive QWERTY method-- I typed this way for years and never got over 30 words per minute. Then I had to write a long book length thesis. I kept putting it off because I hated typing.

Then I switched, out of curiosity, to Dvorak. There was a computer program which taught it. In about two and a half weeks, practicing about an hour a day, I was typing close to my previous 30 words per minute and it seemed easier. By the time I was halfway through my thesis I was typing at 55 words per minute which I never thought I could do. I average between 60 and 65 words per minute today on most projects. My top speed was 83 words per minute, which I never thought was possible for me-- for someone who was laughed at in a high school typing class.

Teaching a kid to type on a QWERTY keyboard is equal to child abuse, especially since that keyboard was especially designed to s l o w y o u d o w n. If you're learning to type, go Dvorak and never look back.

From the outside, it may seem like it may be harder to learn, or even harder to find a Dvorak keyboard. But once you get the hang of it, there is no turning back.

This is Not a How-To Book, but is very educational. After learning the Dvorak layout I was able to type over 50 wpm when opposed to 30 something with Qwerty. Best of All... My Hand Pains are gone and keeps my tendonitis in my wrists away. Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Hope this helps. :D Everyone should learn it. The Europeans are beating us.

A book I needed for the history of Dvorak layout which I have been using since late 1970's before IBM PC came out. (I have the book Typewriting Behavior by Dvorak). I'm current working on a new ergonomic layout for keyboard for Korean language (FYI at tiny.cc/bostonreaders (open to public) in the folder 'Other Useful Collection'.
