Hi all! I'm enjoying the presentation from home. I'm not sure how to ask
questions live (and I remember the difficulties caused last year when too
many people tried to participate at once), so I thought I'd post questions
here, to be answered later at people's convenience.
So, Yair, this is really great. A quick question: in setting up the
keyboard, how did you decide where to place different elements on the split
board? I'm interested in the physical skill/habits involved in typing.
Given that this is a different type of writing system, I'm wondering what
research you might have done to come up with a layout that might be
physically efficient, or perhaps intuitive for those accustomed to using a
qwerty keyboard, or whether there were other kinds of considerations.
Thanks!
