Microcomputer Keyboarding Skills: Dvorak vs. Qwerty.
Ford, Mary Jane; Poe, Virginia
Journal of Computing in Childhood Education, v3 n1 p73-83 1992
Compared the ease and efficiency of the Qwerty and Dvorak keyboards by analyzing five popular lists on high frequency words to determine differences in fingering for the keyboards. Found that more high frequency words and more characters are typed on the Dvorak keyboard home row, and therefore children should be taught to use the Dvorak rather than the Qwerty. (GLR)
