No, I can't, but having run the usual QWERTY route, I can vouch for the
much easier reach on the DVORAK lay-out and, to me, that equates with a
lower strain aspect, which would endorse claims to some degree.
I did read material originally that did sway me in that direction, some
time ago, but wouldn't know where to find that now.

The Coleman layout comes highly recommended also.

I should suggest that there would be many claims and counter-claims in
the vicious realm of keyboard marketing.
Cheers!

David

So I bought a soft-touch keyboard - the Logitech Illuminated Keyboard. It's holding up well, and very easy to type on. I wasn't looking for one with backlight, but now that I have it I love it. I don't remember the price. It's just really comfortable to use.
