A Journey of keyboard layouts: Alphabetic, QWERTY, DVORAK keyboard
The alphabetic as we have studied in our kindergarten a to z is not the best keyboard layout design because it does not take into account these factors which are essential for key layout on a computer are
- 70-80% of the keystrokes you will make should be from the home row.
- It should not cause very jerky movements of hands giving fatigue or RSI (repetitive strain injury) for fingers.
- Both the hands should be used alternatively to increase the typing speed.
