Half Qwerty Half Keyboards

Half QWERTY is for the user who recently was an excellent typist with two hands.

Half Qwerty uses the skills that have been acquired after many years of typing with two hands. Half Qwerty allows the remaining strong hand to do what it has always been trained to do, on the side of the keyboard on which it has always typed.

Each of those keys on that side does double duty. They type the key they would normally type, then, when one of the keys on the opposite side is needed, the user holds down the space key, and key does the other letters from the other side of the keyboard.

Originally a software, now sold as keyboards instead.

The Half Keyboard, for the left hand only, $295

The Full Half Qwerty Keyboard, has a switch for left or right hand. $595

Advantages of Using Half Qwerty (from their advertisements)

  • If the user was an adept two handed typist before losing the use of a hand, Half Qwerty shortens the learning time compared with the cord one handed keyboards

Disadvantages of Using Half Qwerty

I am a one-handed typist. I strongly feel if you have good use of one hand, you must first try to learn a system which enables you to work study, and play on a standard, normal keyboard. In the long run you will type fast and have a skill which you can use at school, work and at play. This one hand typing system is called One Hand QWERTY. This method teaches the one hand user to type on a normal keyboard, with one hand, just as fast as he would on an adaptive keyboard.
Speaking as an adult who once was that 10 year old fighting the stuff that goes on in the mind of a young person with a hand disability, I know it is MANDATORY that you do NOT try alternatives to the standard keyboard if the child has full use of one hand.
