TL;DR: I'm thinking of switching to Mod DH, and I only have an ANSI keyboard. Which Mod DH implementation would you suggest, or maybe you know of a better mod than Mod DH?
I switched from QWERTY to Colemak a bit more than a month ago, and I'm loving it. Way better than my experience that week when I tried Dvorak, which I actually tried first before finally getting fed up of Dvorak's L and settling on switching to Colemak. My current Colemak max speed is 76 WPM and my typical (average) speed is around 65 WPM (my previous QWERTY speed is almost the same but right now, I can only hunt-and-peck on QWERTY). Still practicing Colemak everyday, though--I aim for above a hundred WPM someday :)
Just last night, I discovered about Mod DH and I realized that there are indeed times when I find some letters pretty hard-to-reach and therefore error-prone, especially J, B, and G. I think D and H is a wee bit weird to press but I don't see it as problematic, although I often confuse H with N and D with T, making D and H a bit error-prone. So I am now considering using Mod DH.
So I'm just asking, in your opinion, is it worth the switch? Are there (better) mods worth knowing?
I use an ANSI keyboard, and I didn't even know that I have an ISO keyboard until I checked and realized that one of my keyboards is ISO. I never saw any other ISO keyboard in my life, though. Since it's inconvenient to plug an external (ISO) keyboard to my (ANSI) laptop, I'd rather just use ANSI. Besides, what if my ISO keyboard stops functioning? I don't think I can ever find one again XD
Which layout do you suggest? Like, wide or standard or alt-home?
As long as it helps me improve comfort and possibly speed, then I'd gladly use it.
I'd also love for it to retain the AltGr extra characters.
One problem I have with moving from the default Colemak layout is that I can't use anything but the default Colemak layout on Android (soft keyboard). Ever since I started learning Colemak, my QWERTY skill has dramatically dropped, and even typing QWERTY on my Android phone forces me to hunt-and-peck. Having the exact same layout on both desktop and phone really helps me.
