Personal message from Lilly Walters - One Hand Typist

At this site I review many one hand typing systems and keyboard layouts.
HOWEVER, to be a GREAT typist, with one hand, you do NOT need a one hand keyboard.
It is not the violin you buy which makes you a great violinist. It is the hours of practice and the quality of the tutor which will make you great at anything - regardless of how many hands you are working with or the instrument on which you are typing.
I know, I am a one handed typist. I lost most of my left hand in a forklift accident when I was 10. Today I do from 40 - 80 wpm (depending on how much coffee and sleep I've had) with just one hand on a standard NORMAL keyboard. (see video clip) I have authored and typed every word of 13 books, with the normal keyboard. I can go into any school, workplace or home, and sit down with others to play and work just as well as they do. Competing with my two handed friends, on their ground, with their terms.
Do you have two hands? Are you a speed touch typist? Is it because of the keyboard you use? Or is it because you LEARNED HOW TO TYPE? A skill which takes hours of practice, just as any learned skill does.
Typing is a skill which does us well in school and when we want to get a job. We are much more valuable when we can walk into the workplace and sit down at their computers and work with happy ease. Compare that to dragging in a $900 alternative keyboard, "Which of course you won't mind fixing when it breaks?" (And, by the way, they do mind!) They especially mind when they you will be typing slower than if you LEARNED TO TYPE using the normal keyboard with one hand.
I sell most of the one handed keyboards below. I sell them to adults who have actually practiced using a one hand typing tutor on a normal computer and just don't like it.
But, I  feel so strongly that a one hand keyboard is the wrong option for children, I will not sell them to that market. This site will review each of the options for one hand typists with pros and cons, so you can see if you agree.
As a one handed typist, I know you will type faster and feel better about yourself using the keyboard the other kids are using.
I welcome your calls, and e-mails.
