Learning Dvorak

Training Tips

I corresponded with a fellow who had a somewhat negative experience retraining to Dvorak. I learned that his schoolwork required him to continue using QWERTY while he was trying to retrain. That's a pretty sure road to frustration.

In light of this fellow's problem, and at risk of duplicating information you might see elsewhere, I submit the following tips for retraining to Dvorak.

Most of these tips are gleaned from The Dvorak Keyboard by R. C. Cassingham, who covers the subject in much more detail.

Typing Tutors

Several typing tutors that support Dvorak are available. New ones turn up from time to time. I haven't tried them all, but here are some you can try for yourself:
