There are a multitude of different keyboard layouts in use today. The one that is by far most frequently encountered in Australia is the standard US QWERTY layout. This page is going to link to any other pages I make about keyboard layouts.
Alternatives to QWERTY
- Dvorak (includes single-handed variants that are very useful for one-handed typists, like me)
- Colemak (much more similar to QWERTY, but moves the most frequently-used letters to the home row, while keeping all non-letter keys – and keys frequently used in keyboard shortcuts, like Z, X, C, V – in the same spots)
