Lightly place the tips of your fingers on the home keys as shown in the illustration below. This episode makes extensive use of Wikimedia Commons for old portraits and photos and Digibarn for computer images and footage. If there is anything that I can do to make myself better and faster at typing, I'll consider it. For that reason, the idea of trying to adapt to Dvorak, a keyboard layout that never reached the popularity of QWERTY, has long interested me.
According to accounts I'd read, the speed difference earned when switching from QWERTY to Dvorak can be negligible—between two and six percent. The second goal is more like a hypothesis: once I learn Dvorak, I want to see if I will be able to code-switch between layouts at will. I want to take some time here and note that typing is my literal livelihood; I use no dictation software or anything to do my writing, and writing is my full-time job. Together with KaraKEYoke Karaoke you can sing your favorite songs and also easy to learn to play the Piano, Musical Keyboard, MIDI keyboard. The program works with any MIDI Keyboard as well as Keyboard CASIO, Yamaha, Roland and others have MIDI output. KaraKEYoke software manages learning, shows the right keys on the screen and highlights them on the keyboard. You can select any track for training on the computer screen and it is immediately available for training. When using the SHIFT or CONTROL keys, it is easier to use the opposing hand from the letter (or command key) you will be pressing. Simply substitute the symbol on the color coded chart, as long as the letters are all in the correct place this should not be any cause for concern.


I'm a reasonably fast typist at 85-90 words per minute, but my job is to write, and my life is spent constantly in front of a computer.
The supposed merits of Dvorak are that one can both be a faster typist and be more comfortable while typing—Dvorak typists reach less and distribute the workload more evenly between their hands. Considering the 15 years of consistent typing and four years of full-time writing it took to get where I am now with my current keyboard layout, the uphill road to becoming this good again is daunting. If typing is like riding a bike, I’m not sure I can hold and simultaneously maintain two different ways of riding the same bike in my brain. The transition can result in some mistakes, but it's ultimately possible to balance familiarity with both in the same brain. With the occasional exception of reporting events, I am 100 percent fingers to QWERTY keyboard, all day, every day.
It can be songs, melodies, exercises, pieces, etudes which are easy to find and download from the Internet. After that you can load converted MIDI file to the Casio Musical Keyboard using SD memory card or USB connection.
Right hand pinkie finger on the ; (semi-colon) key and other fingers on the L, K and J keys. For example, for uppercase A press and hold the right side SHIFT key with your RIGHT HAND pinkie finger, and press the A key with your LEFT HAND pinkie finger. If your keyboard has a completely different layout, you can select the correct type at the top of this page.
But if I can achieve a certain level of Dvorak competency, my productivity shouldn't be negatively affected. My “technical success” goal will be 30 words per minute at around 90 percent accuracy with a reach goal of 50wpm at 90 percent accuracy.


Anecdotal evidence from various Internet forums suggests this is extremely hard to do (two different kinds of typing, not bike riding). However, the differences between language keyboards are significantly smaller than those between QWERTY and Dvorak. This isn't to say “it's a risk, but everything I do, I do for you, Ars readers.” It's more “sorry, Nate, Ken, and Eric for taking 20 times longer than expected to do everything in the next few days.
Then load converted MIDI file to the Casio Digital Keyboard using SD memory card or USB connection. Some keyboards have helpful "bumps" on the F and J keys, to allow you to quickly position your fingers by feel. Your thumbs are used in a similar way, you can use either RIGHT or LEFT thumb to press the SPACE BAR and ALT keys.
I'll be writing about this experience in three parts, each with a word per minute progress report at the end. The program allows you preview MIDI song and select MIDI channels for training separately for right and left hands. Being bad at a new skill I can deal with, but having it come at the cost of another skill is anxiety-inducing.
