i am looking for a keyboard with the keys arranged in such a way that i can use it with my one hand, while keeping up my productivity and holding a WPM count over 155. i thought someone might have suggestions so thank you for your time. FYI, with a standard keyboard it took me 5 minutes to write this post which is why i need a better alternative

the only thing i can think of is to use a smaller keyboard. But that brings accuracy issues into it.

I don't see how you're going to get 155 wpm. 120 is extremely high.

Yeah. people, like Lemoninfluence, are hypocrites and should have all their opinions invalidated from here on out.

There's a concept called half QWERTY, which is a software that uses a full keyboard. What happens is, if you type only with your left hand, for example, you have half the keyboard in your range, as it were. This software has a function where, if you hold the space bar when pressing a key, you get the corresponding key from the "out of range" selection, if you get me. So if you holdthe space bar when pressing the Q button, you get P (the selection is mirror flipped).

That must be insanely hard to get used to, sorta like a mirror land

Apparently not. According to "research," trained touch typists can work it out in a matter of minutes, and to the untrained it takes about the same amount of time to learn as touchtyping.

Surely you'd have massive spaces in between letters from holding the space down?

Maybe the price tag is clouding your judgment ?
yeah probably. Or the circuits.

Software and drivers change the function. Do you not think the developers would have thought of that? It essentially turns the space bar into a shift key when held down.

i use dvorak, and there are definitely versions of it for the uni-armed. it is supposedly quite easy to attain a higher WPM with it than a two-armed person on QWERTY.



EDIT: actually, there are two other versions of it, depending on which arm you're missing.
Hahahahahahahahahah hahahaha har har har
