Learning Dvorak – Day 6

I practiced some more pangrams today and got 11wpm on my last try. At this rate, I think I can hit 40wpm in a month. Not all that impressive.

I was reading a couple posts from people who have tried this before me. Based on their experiences I’m guessing the best I can hope for is to match my current speed. The increase seems to go along with people who haven’t learned to touch type in the first place learning to touch type with Dvorak.

So the comparisons might not be fair.

The world’s fastest typist used Dvorak though, so maybe…

I’ve decided to try to keep this up for 30 days and see where that will get me before I draw any final conclusions.
