I'm going to lose use of my right (dominant) hand in a week due to surgery and want some alternatives for typing. Has anyone used any keyboards or software to make the down time less unproductive? One-Hand Keyboard: Free One-Hand Typing?

This is a little late, but I was shocked at the quality of Windows built in voice recognition software. Between my one good hand, and my voice, I was able to get back to work a day after surgery. A headset is a definite requirement, but there are really good cheap ones on Amazon. I hope it all went well for you.
