Qwerty Keyboard on Trial

Qwerty KeyboardStephen Fry puts the Qwerty keyboard on trial in this light-hearted Radio 4 programme called Fry’s English Delight.   The true history of the system is revealed along with discussion about alternative input systems, including Voice Recognition.  It is claimed that it takes less time to learn to fly a plane than it does to learn to touch type.

The programme is available on iplayer until 17th August.
