Becomming 50 next year.
Learned to type on azerty, but not blind. For the numbers I always needed a numpad. I never understood why they made you use the shift key to type numbers.
Typing speed on azerty (not blind): 53 wpm
Did this for most of my life.
A few weeks I made the bold move to order a TKL mechanical keyboard in qwerty. I wanted to force myself to not use the numpad anymore and to really try to learn to touch type (blind type)
This messed up my azerty 'skills' and some letters are better placed on qwerty then on azerty for me (like the 'a')
then i read about colemak and thought to myself why not?
so day one and my first try on colemak club was 8 wpm with accuracy of 93 on the first excersise
at the end of the day I get 18wpm and 96 accuracy
shoulders stressed, fingers not so much. I hit de keys less hard now
that's it for now
