I am very clumsy with left,


I once broke my right hand and I was wearing a cast for several weeks. Being clumsy with my left hand and just to top it, I successfully managed to burn my left hand during some cooking-attempt and ended up with a dressing on the other one, too. My husband turned into a full-time nurse (and make-up artist!) and my employer hired an assistant who sat next to me at the office all day long, don't ask...

will take good care of my left hand :-) Feb 9, 2012

Thanks a million for your advice.
Unfortunately, the speech recognition programme with Windows 7 is not supported in Dutch Hope DNS will do the job
Right now, I am working on a checking & editing task using my left hand and mouse only, so far so good!

One hand typing Apr 18, 2012

Typing with only one hand is actually an established method. Perhaps translators and other "wordsmiths" would do well to at least be familiar with it as a backup plan.
