Subject:Keyboard vs. mouse From:Melissa Hunter-Kilmer <mhunterk -at- BNA -dot- COM> Date:Tue, 31 Oct 1995 13:45:19 EST
We are planning our documents for a new in-house application. We suspect
that using the keyboard is faster than using a mouse. If it is, we want
to slant the doc and training so that users become accustomed to keyboard
However, we don't have any hard evidence of the difference in speed. Does
anybody know of a study or article that sheds light on which is faster?
