      Do you use a keyboard often whether it be for gaming, work, school or typical computer tasks? Does your type of MD make it difficult for you type and instead use a speech recognition software? If not, do you use any other softwares or products to assist you when your typing?

      At this point in my life I still have the muscle strength to use a keyboard. I am not at all fast at typing and only learned to type at around age 12. Unlike my boyfriend, I can’t type without looking at the keys so I recently bought a lap desk for when I’m writing my articles on the monitor in my room. That way my posture is better and the keys are within my range of vision.

      I use a lot of voice recognition, but it makes so many errors that sometimes going back and fixing is just as difficult. I wish they could make something better because I would rather write something by speaking and then make some edits to finalize. I also find it less difficult to type on an iPad screen than to use a laptop where I have to hold hands/arms higher.

      I find most voice recognition to be difficult to use too. If it was better developed I might use it more often but for now I would honestly rather use my limited energy to type than to correct the softwares mistakes. I agree that the conventional ways of typing (lifting up the wrists) is exhausting and needs to change. Have you ever tried using an arm rest specifically made for typing on a keyboard?

      I haven’t and that might help. I’ll have to look those up. I’d like to use my Mac more but iPad has been easiest to use so far. But the pas is a good idea!
