Keyboard layout stuff

Posted by carlytoon - 1 month ago


Today, after a enormous amount of time using the famous qwerty keyboard distribution of keys, I decided to start the learning of the famous alternative, the well known (at least on the keys distribution community) Dvorak keyboard layout.


Because I realized that my bad habits of keystrokes typing on this traditional layout, which is used on any computer nowdays since it's invention more than 50 years ago, was hurting my hand.


I noticed that most of my fingers are slightly bended, bearely visible until you pay attention carefully, the index finger of both hands are the most affected. Also the knuckles of my pinky and ring fingers, again, on both hands have poor strenght.


That make me conclude that if I keep using qwerty layout I could develop something that people call RSI. So yea, I believe this process will be slow.


Hope it make the diference.

Be careful, I have been strugling myself learning it, it is a really slow process. Good luck!
