Since we still have time before first ship, I thought this would be an interesting experiment:
- Go to http://keybr.com. If you already have an account, sign out or use a different browser.
- Keep typing in practice mode until you have enabled all letters and you are no longer practicing a single letter (you need to be able to type >35WPM for each letter, it should say “no key”)
- Save your stats (and maybe share them). Probably best to make screenshots.
Then, once you have the textblade, do the same thing on a fresh account/browser, and compare how long it takes to get used to the keyboard layout.
I’m interested in what keys are difficult to learn. Unfortunately there is no tracking of symbols and numbers, so if you know of a better site?
Here’s my progression for Colemak:
(actually I did this on a different computer and I can’t remember if I stopped once I got to “no key”)
