No, it's designed so that commonly paired letters aren't next to each other. That isn't inefficient, unless you're counting the number of ATP used for every letter press.

Read more about it. Its designed so that its involuntarily discriminate to right handed people.





Making progress... typing is even harder seeing the letters in different places. I'm still in the QWERTY format on the OS

Don't have the patience, and besides, other people use my computer. I wouldn't want to be an asshole to them. I just have the Dvorak layout written on a little whiteboard, although I already have most of the locations down. My biggest problems so far are pressing 'e' instead of 'i' and 'n' instead of 's'. Also 'd' and 'h' to a lesser extent.

I have to say, I'm loving the vowel placement. And typing 'the' is the most satisfying thing ever.

I wanted to go DVORAK, but realised that i'd need to either pull all teh keys off my Laptop to put them in the right place, or buy a new keyboard. All this on top of learning a new system. Thought it wasn't worth the hassle.

Or you could just do what I'm doing and keep the same keyboard but change the settings on your computer. Granted, that means you can't look at the keys to see which letter is which, but you could make a separate diagram for that if it bothers you that much.

I've always used QWERTY and I don't see any reason to change.

I don't understand how some layouts are "faster" than others. That depends on the language and on your practice using it. It's all a matter of habit.

or cut out some paper and draw letters on them lol. currently im using a little program in the app store that acts as a school type lesson thing.

its been very helpful in my honest opinion. this took forever to type though lol its hard since i didnt even use the "correct"way to type before.
