I'm modifying a keyboard, and I'm considering my options concerning dyeing the keycaps.
One of the color schemes I have in mind would involve dyeing the majority of the keycaps either very dark brown or black, which would make the black legends difficult or maybe even impossible to read.
I have two different color schemes in mind.
One of them uses lighter colors and will still allow me to see the legends, but I'm thinking that if I wear through the dyed layer, these lighter colors will be impossible to touch up properly.
If I wear through black, I can always re-dye the keycaps without having to worry about the shade matching.
I want to learn to touch type, or at least get to the stage where I can eliminate the 'hunt' part of my 'hunt and peck' technique.
I read that the Das Keyboard was touted as an aid to learning touch typing, as the blank keycaps force you into typing without looking at the keyboard.
Rather than believe advertising speil, I'd like some opinions from real touch typists as to whether you think that obliterating my keyboard's legends will help me to learn faster, or just make it really difficult to use my keyboard?
I guess a better way to articulate my question would be to ask if blank keycaps are useful for helping a beginner, or if they are something you should hold off on until you already know how to touch type?
