To the honored Mr. Shai Coleman,
After seeing the post by Seruxie, I sort of found the courage to write something in the forum. This is a layout designed by myself...
q w y d f j u p l
a s e t g h n i o r
z x c v b k m
This layout is easy to learn, but not as fast. It has a low rate of changes of positions, fingers or hands. To reach a higher speed, try Niro. Asset also achieves something similar to this layout, but in a more complexed manner.
The problems of this layout is the probably the UN and the LO bigrams. The U is overall filled with problems, since vowels are not supposed to be typed with indexes... Comparing to Norman, it puts E and D away on different fingers.
The most satisfying word with this layout is probably "transparent".
In this topic, I also want to talk about the changes I have done to my computer with Sharpkeys and other things about typing, so the following content isn't really related to the layout mentioned above...
I don't know why, but my computer's MSKLC is not running properly, so I just stuck to using Sharpkeys. I use an ANSI without numberpad, and moved both hands away from each other for one digit. The symbols are now in the middle. Enter is delete, and right Shift is Enter. Since the hands are moved away, my thumbs can reach the Alt keys now, and I use them for the Shifts.
I am also developing an inputting method for the English language using DuoDuo Chinese IME Generater, and the softwares are also not running properly... The basic idea is that one key can represent many characters. On a QWERTY, it can be so represented:
To type Q or A, type A.
To type W, S or Z, type S.
To type E, D or X, type D.
To type R, F or C, type F.
To type T, G or V, type G.
To type Y, H or B, type H.
To type U, J or N, type J.
To type I, K or M, type K.
To type O, L or P, type L.
(I type Z with ring, not pinky.)
For example, the word "remember" can be typed as "fdkdkhdf".
Use spacebar when you have finished typing a word. If the target word is on the second place on the waiting list, use ; to select. The third can be selected by the R key, and the fourth by U. After selection, you do not need to type spacebar again. To turn off or switch on the inputting method, use the Left Shift key.
Of course, this layout can be optimized so that the repeated code rate would reduce.
That's all I want to blabber about... Thank you so much
for wasting time
on this post! Sorry for my terrible English!
