Instead of algorithms it should be machine learning of course.

Texting should work. Unless the message is too long, in which case it gets converted to voicemails, and I think I'm locked out of my voicemail.

#4 is for whenever I have to enter a number and think I'll be bombarded with robocalls, unless the call starts with a magic package, in which case it's forwarded to my laptop to wake it up.

@adam8797 Author here. Glad you like it! I forgot it was still running ! You probably don't need it anymore since on mobile you can long press images to see the alt text now.

Dvorak words may sound hard to pronounce, but studies show they actually put less stress on the vocal chords.

I wouldn't mind trying the HCESAR layout though... those vintage typewriters keep tempting me... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HCESAR?wprov=sfsi1

For the record, zero studies have found that Dvorak is more efficient.

Do you mean faster, more accurate, less hand movement? I'm just curious how we're measuring efficiency. I have carpal tunnel and used Dvorak for many years because I found (anecdotally, grant you) that it was less hand movement.

The origin of all positive claims regarding the dvorak layout came from one study by US Navy that has been discredited for at least 20 years. Because carpal tunnel (and similar ailments like tendonitis) are repetitive stress injuries, switching layouts would change the repetitions. http://reason.com/archives/1996/06/01/typing-errors/1

The Dvorak legend is not entirely without basis: It seems a more logical layout that really ought to minimize hand movement. Thing is: For trained and skilled typists, that seems to make no difference in ultimate performance. Matters may be different for people suffering, e.g., from carpal tunnel who are willing to invest into retraining their hands.
