You can carry a disk in your shirt pocket and invoke your keyboard on the school or work computer. It is so easy.
Locate the files KBDUSR.DLL and KBDUSL.DLL. They are in MSDVORAK.ZIP which you can download here or many other places. If you are right-handed rename KBDUSR.DLL to KBDDV.DLL. If you use your left hand then rename KBDUSL.DLL to KBDDV.DLL. Get it? Windows 3.1 is set up to use the regular Dvorak keyboard. We are going to take advantage of that fact. You should know how to rename a file. Ahhh Another thing that is sooo easy. Put a copy of the keyboard dll you are going to use on a floppy. Go to the A: prompt. Type:
Here are installation directions from Windows 3.1 Program Manager.
Your keyboard is installed. When you leave put the computer back like you found it. This is just common courtesy.
Sometimes the people who are in charge of the computers may be very nervous about you changing the keyboard. These are, for the most part, people with limited knowledge. When this happens just explain that you type with a single-handed keyboard and will be happy to use the one they supply. Most people are aware of the law that requires accommodation. You will get what you need.
