I switched to the Dvorák keyboard layout on 12/28/06, 4:30pm. I want to see not only how quickly I can match my previous speed (65wpm on QWERTY), but how much I can exceed it by. I did not rearrange my keyboard keys, so I never look at them (since only the a and m keys type the letter that's on them). I'm interested in forming a mental attack plan to maximize the efficiency/effectiveness of my training. Here's how things have gone so far: 12/28: 9wpm 12/29: 13 30: 17 31: 21 1/1: wasn't at a computer 1/2: barely at a computer, hardly any typing 1/3: 22 1/4: 29 1/5: 30 1/6: 31 It really feels like I've hit some sort of barrier, and it's getting to my head. I'm feeling "jumpy" and I'm frustrated, but I am NOT giving up. Today I spent time typing while singing along to music in an attempt to reduce my dependency on keeping a "mental picture" of the keys as I type. When I'm doing that, I'm around 22wpm, with about 2 typos per minute. I make even more mistakes while typing a post like this because I'm trying to think about what I'm posting. So, does anyone have any practical suggestions? As long as there appears to be interest in my experiment/progress, I'll keep posting my results.
