Dvorak keyboard training
This is a free online typing course, that enables you to learn the Dvorak Simplified Keyboard layout rather quickly. There are five lessons, each of which most people can complete within two hours. After these lessons, you will be able to touch type the entire alphabet.
You do not have to change your keyboard settings to use this site (if you’re using US QWERTY, QWERTZ or AZERTY.) Do you see that drop-down that says “No keyboard mapping”? When you choose your current layout from that list, you can type Dvorak here without changing anything on your computer. But. everything else will still be QWERTY / QWERTZ / AZERTY. Yes. That’s okay, it won’t slow you down when learning Dvorak. Just learn the alphabet first, and configure your keyboard layout later. Not being able to type words is incredibly frustrating; you don’t have to put yourself through that. I’ve finished lesson 5 and I rock. Can I change my settings now? Of course, and you definitely should! In Windows, it’s under Language Settings, (not Keyboard). In Mac OS X, under International. Under Linux you can set it via your desktop environment’s configuration manager, or you can run “setxkbmap dvorak” in X or “loadkeys dvorak” on the console.
