Alternative Keyboard Layouts
Free keyboard layouts—called Dvorak layouts—are available for people who type with one hand or finger. These layouts make the most frequently typed characters on a keyboard more accessible to people who have difficulty using the standard keyboard layout (called the "QWERTY" layout).
The Dvorak layouts are included free with Windows XP, Windows 2000 Professional, Windows Me, Windows 98, and Windows NT 3.51 and higher. To use the Dvorak layouts, it is necessary to change the keyboard settings. Instructions for doing this are on the Microsoft website.
