What would happen if I flicked my finger from one letter or symbol on a key to a different symbol on the same key, so fast that the key didn’t have time to come all the way up, or didn’t come up at all? Would it register that as a new keypress because I changed which zone of the key I was touching? It’s not as much a problem in QWERTY, because I don’t think there are any letter pairs like that (EDIT: Apparently I was wrong–a little actual looking and thinking about it revealed a bunch). In Colemak, however, I’m seeing E -> U or U -> E As in “feud” and “cruel”, Y -> I as in “yikes” and “flying”, S -> C as in “school” and “fiscal”, and so forth. Dvorak and international languages also probably have letter pairs that can be done on the same smart key, possibly without letting that key up for air in between. So what happens if you’re too fast for the keys? Can TextBlade slice through those letter pairs as you slide fingers across the keytops, or does this present a weird little problem of having to slow down, let a finger off the key for a fraction of a second, and then press again?
EDIT: Went back and looked at QWERTY, and holy moly, every key has at least one possible pairing, even the far-right smart key, as illustrated by the simple phrase “Please stop?” ( P, " and ? are all on that rightmost key)
(And @waytools , if this does present a problem, please don’t re-engineer the TextBlade trying to fix it --save that fix for the TextBlade 2, I’ll just retrain myself to type, rather than delaying shipping any further. )
Excited for my TextBlade!
