DISCONTINUED. (Verified 01/2010) RETAINED IN DATABASE FOR REFERENCE. Dvorak Keyboard Layouts is a keyboard modification program designed to prevent repetitive strain injury by reducing fatigue or to assist one handed typists and typists who use a wand or mouthstick. Dvorak keyboard layouts make the most frequently typed characters on a keyboard more accessible to peoplewho have difficulty using the standard "QWERTY" layout. There are three layouts available: one for two handed typists and one each for right or left handed typists. The single handed keyboard layouts can also be used for individuals who use a wand or mouthstick. The layout is a map or a definition of how keys are laid out on your keyboard and there is no need to replace or existing hardware to use it. Dvorak layouts are ideal because they reduce the amount of motion required to type common English text which may help avoid repetitive strain injuries associated with typing. This program can be downloaded through various services (see COMMENTS below). COMPATIBILITY: Layouts are available for Microsoft MS-DOS 5.0 and 6.0, Microsoft Windows 3.1, Windows for Workgroups 3.1, and Microsoft Windows NT 3.1.
