Hi. I want to try out English Colemak with the wide mod-DH. (Sorry if the terminology is wrong. Please feel free to correct me.) My cheap new mechanical keyboard arrives in a couple days so I was working on setting up Colemak with said mod on my computer which runs Void Linux in the meanwhile.
I was wondering how you folks learn a new layout. Like most I have used QWERTY all my life but I am not very good at it (slow and inaccurate, with bad touch typing habits) so from my very limited knowledge typing tutor programs (like klavaro, gtypist, keybr.com, etc.) are the way to go. But klavaro supports only standard Colemak OOTB (though it allows customisable layouts) but I was wondering what your thoughts are on this.
To summarise my rambling:
1. Are typing tutor programs a decent way to get in the swing of using a new keyboard layout, specifically Colemak's wide mod-DH?
2. If yes, then which such program do you like (preferably because of good experience that you had)?
Thanks for bearing with me.
Edir: Forgot to mention I type only in English.
