Speed health and safety

Learning to use and using the Dvorak keyboard arrangement (available on all pcs) increases the average keyboarding speed by at least 50% and significantly reduce health problems like carpal tunnel of the wrist. Movement on the keyboard is 1/10th of a QWERTY board. The most frequently used letters are located under the strongest and most mobile of fingers (QWERTY boards have 65% of all English words exclusively on the left hand. The weakest hand for 10 of 11 Americans).This is a large undertaking with up front costs but the cost savings in the future are emence. It is the biggest improvement in office productivity ever made.
