Touch-type with just one hand on the Half-QWERTY 508 Keyboard from Matias. Designed for one-handed individuals, or those suffering from hemiplegia, carpal tunnel syndrome, or other hand-related injuries, the Half-QWERTY is compliant with Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act, which requires that Federal agencies' electronic and information technology is accessible to people with disabilities.
The Half-QWERTY typing technique is very similar to the standard two-handed touch-typing technique. You place your hand where it would normally be if you were touch-typing - that takes care of that half of the keyboard. To type the letters of the other half, you hold down the space bar with your thumb and do the same finger movement that you would normally do with the other hand. Tapping the space bar still types a space. The relative finger movements used for one-handed typing are the same as those used for two-handed typing. So if you're currently a touch-typist, you already know them. You should be typing one-handed in a matter of minutes.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other typing-related injuries don't always occur in both hands. In cases where only one hand is affected, you can type with the other hand, while the injured one heals. Half-QWERTY's innovative "skill transfer" design makes the transition fast and easy. And when your injury heals, use the Half-QWERTY Keyboard as a standard desktop keyboard that is used with two hands.
