One Hand Typing and Keyboarding for the Disabled Student.
This paper discusses how students with disabilities can learn to keyboard using one hand. It lists keyboarding choices for those with a hand disability, including learning the one-hand method on the standard keyboard, changing the keyboard over to a One Hand Dvoark, buying a one hand keyboard, and using an alternative to typing, such as voice activation. Questions that should be considered before choosing a method are provided. Using the One Hand QWERTY Touch Typing System is recommended because there is no adaptive equipment needed. Information is provided on how to position the equipment for one-hand typing, choosing a chair, and adapting the rules for an individual body's challenges. Suggestions also are made for avoiding aches and damage to the body and for easing aches, strains, and pains. (CR)
