Re: chording keyboard...?

I taught myself to use one called the "Twiddler". I could only get up to about 25wpm or so, and I'm at about 30wpm (and way more comfortable) on a regular keyboard. I might try the new version sometime, especially now that they're using a trackpoint rather than a gyro.

Here's a very incomplete list of chording keyboards.


A new category is the Half Keyboard. It looks kinda funny. For some reason, it makes me giggle.

I have a Half Keyboard. One day I'll learn to type effectively on it, so that I can keep my left hand on the keys and my right hand on the mouse.

Henceforth I shall think of them as 'chortling' keyboards.

Hey, it might be interesting to loan the half keyboard to nobodobodon until his hand re-enlists. I'd probably have to break something to effectively learn another typing method. Heck, I don't even touch type, and I've been getting paid to do it anyway for a decade.
