    i have been learning to touch type and around a week ago switched from qwerty to colemak.  now i've been reading about colemak-dh and want to try it, but afaict the websites i've been practicing on (typing.com and keybr.com mainly) don't offer it as a keyboard layout option.  it's sad bc i really like both sites.  does anyone have some good alternatives?  what should i do?

    thank you

    ok i found some good sites to practice BUT i hate not having "z" on the bottom left so i switched back.  are the ppl who like -DH using asci keyboards or do they have a setup where they can keep "z" in the bottom left while using -DH

    You should hate not having a straight left wrist more – and you should not same-finger the CT bigram. ANSI people who get used to it have the Z in the middle quite happily. I'm ISO master race so I have a better Angle mod and a better Wide mod; others get ergonomic keyboards.
