Qwerty (Standard Keyboard)

The Qwerty keyboard is named for the first six keys in the top row of letters. The layout was created in the 1870’s for mechanical typewriters. It was actually designed to slow typists down so that their typewriter keys wouldn’t jam.

Dvorak

The Dvorak keyboard is designed for efficient typing. It has the most frequently used letters on the home row. Faster speeds and greater accuracy are achieved on this layout. This keyboard layout option is already installed on Windows, MAC, and UNIX operating systems.
