                In 1932 August Dvorak solved the inefficiency problem by re-designing the 34 of the typewriter. He put the most commonly used letters on the home row. Using the Dvorak keyboard, over 3,000 words or  35 of all work can be done from the home row. In contrast, only  36 can be typed from the home row on the QWERTY keyboard. Other advantages of the Dvorak keyboard include a 50% improvement in  37 and a 15 - 20% increase in  38 . But the most important difference is in finger movement.

                Typists using the QWERTY keyboard moved their fingers 39 miles per day compared to one mile a day for Dvorak typists.
