Layout alternative : BvoFRak EN
« on: Wed, 28 December 2011, 11:08:53 »
Hello,
I just want to show you one the layout I create: BvoFRak EN  v0.4.
It's only based on statistical elements.
The aim was to increase "rolls" in english and, use it, to create one close to my mother language (french). On paper, it could be a good alternive in english (good alternation of hands, low use of the same finger, low distance and good rollings) . In real, I don't know
Of course, you can change the position of red and orange secondary keys (Ⓥ↔Ⓛ↔Ⓜ) because, like me, some find easier to reach the bottom line with the index (in qwerty Ⓥ) than to move the entire hand to reach the upper line (Ⓡ).

Would you use this to type in french, or would it be as good for english?

English only.

But it was a way to find what is important in english and don't loose too many good points in the construction of the french layout.

For french, for instance, I test this one.(BvoFRak V0.4n)

If you use a matrix keyboard switch Ⓜ↔Ⓛ and .↔Ⓑ (or Ⓒ↔Ⓥ .↔Ⓖfor french one), replace / by z
