    As a quad which use (two)sticks to type, I'll ike to have mouse positioned on the middle of the keyboard. A laptop like keyboard

    Anyway, the subject is open on my stack todo list. I'll put some weeks on it until I find the best long term solution.
    I type with one hand and have my other hand on the trackball. With all the mousing around in apps these days, I think I type faster than I would using two typing sticks. I like trackballs. They are easy to manipulate with just about any part of my hand.

    Which text expander do you use? I found PhraseExpress is pretty neat program the can fill out text faster. ie: 'ty' will print out Thank You

    I have my old PowerBookG4. I use my right hand to type, pointer finger w/thumb curled under it for support. Trackpad/touchpad on lapzilla using palm of hand meets wrist outer bone & sticky keys when needed. I type rather quickly even with 1 finger, barely have to look at keys. (c5/6 complete)
