    1. For a period of four or five years, I used the qwerty layout at work (on a shared DOS computer), and the Dvorak layout at home, spending about half of my typing time on each. During that time, my Dvorak speed increased to 90 wpm, and my qwerty speed reached 80 wpm. My accuracy improved slightly on both layouts. On the Dvorak layout, my most common typos are reversing two letters, whereas on the qwerty layout, it's more common for me to hit the wrong key altogether.

      Author's [[Dvorak]] personal experinece, reports something similar to the results he found earlier on.

    2. In the mid 1950s, U.S. Government's General Services Administration commissioned a study by Earle Strong to confirm Dvorak's results. Strong's study, which included proper controls and which was set up to allow direct comparison of qwerty and Dvorak data, found that after sufficient training, Dvorak typists were able to match their previous qwerty speeds, but not surpass them.

      Study results that attempted to verify Navy's experiment results from 1944.

    3. U.S. Navy selected fourteen typists for a 1944 study to assess whether Dvorak retraining would be feasible. Dvorak found that it took an average of only 52 hours of training for those typists' speeds on the Dvorak keyboard to reach their average speeds on the qwerty keyboard. By the end of the study their Dvorak speeds were 74 percent faster than their qwerty speeds, and their accuracies had increased by 68 percent.

      Subsequent investigation showed that these experiments performed by the Navy were biased.

    1. Keyboard layout agnostic. Maps to physical keys, but displays with the US layout.
    2. multiple selections, keyboard layout agnostic, SOV (subject–object–verb) constructs and simple interaction with external programs

    1. I’m on cloud nine. Look at this glorious keyboard! An Esc key! Inverted-T arrow keys! A millimeter of key travel! Enough spacing between the keys for our fingers to accurately orient themselves! And keystrokes will probably work, 100% of the time, for years!

      What I would give to have this!

    1. One of the most useful features in Xcode is the Filename search. You can open it with the keyboard shortcut Shift + Command + O.

      Found what I was looking for to jump to file in Xcode

    2. I like that the keyboard halves can get so far apart, but how can I attach the halves where I want them? Like on the side of an armchair? We had this exact use-case in mind when designing the stainless steel threaded inserts. There are four per halve, and allow you to put screws in from the back so you can mount your keyboard to almost anything.
    3. Do you plan to release a Bluetooth version or a version featuring a matrix/columnar layout? We’re considering it but not anytime soon.

    1. You carry some gadget, a phone or a watch or a pendant or an implant in your palm, and use it to animate any screen or surface you encounter.

      This would be useful in some situations, but maybe not when you don't want others to see what you are looking at.

    1. sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration

      This worked well for me with a Dell Vostro 3550 and Ubuntu Server 14.04.4 virtualised inside VirtualBox (Version 5.0.16 r105871). When you run this command, the shell will present the configurator and the choices this user recommends are valid mostly. By contrast, I chose the Dell SK-8125 as a reasonably close match to the Vostro 3550. I also set the left Alt key to function as the AltGr key and this solved the problem. Now, if I want to type the pipe ( | ) character, I use the key combination


      This is not the most intuitive solution; but it works!

    1. Sort by Newest s then n Sort by Oldest s then o

      It would be less confusing if these commands were the same as the Chrome Pocket app, which is ALT + 5, but glad to know that this functionality isn't gone!
