Ja,es June 12, 2013

After a couple of years of practice typing on an iPad, I still find that (at least when I am typing without looking at the keyboard) my name ends up coming out more frequently as  Ja,es  than James.

Presumably this is due to the slight difference in size between the iPad’s on-screen keyboard and a typical physical computer keyboard.

Has anyone else noticed this sort of thing? Can one retrain one’s mind and muscles to type more effectively on a different type of keyboard without it detracting from one’s ability on the standard-size keyboard?

(This seems comparable to trying to play one of the smaller musical keyboards or other smaller than standard instruments one comes across, when one is used to playing the full-size instrument).

Presumably changing my name to Ja,es would also solve the problem…
