The Fastest Input Method
by Roger R. Prokic
In a previous article, Leslie Newman asked:
Today I'm just wondering if anyone has any experience with/ thoughts on the
T9 and/or PalmFitaly text input technology? Due to some minor hand problems
I don't love dealing with Grafitti so I've been using the Palm's own
built-in keyboard but it's so small that it's slow going. I don't have to
do lengthy text inputs so lugging a GoType keyboard around doesn't appeal
to me. I'm about to install a demo version of T9 but wondered if anyone had
any info or opinions on it to share?
I highly recommend the Fitaly keyboard. It is the fastest input method for most, once you have used it a bit. I can type over 50 wpm with it!
