Dvorak layout in exams?

Unanswered Question
Apr 3rd, 2007


While I can type in both qwerty and dvorak keyboard layouts, I found during my CCNA exam that I wasn't as comfortable with qwerty during the virtual lab questions. So for my next exam I have asked a couple of places about using a dvorak layout and so far one has said no with no reason given. I have asked for reason.

I can't see why it wouldn't be acceptable . I can't see why it would be difficult, since we all use different keyboard layouts around the world, and dvorak is included as standard on all windows platforms that I know of.

Has anyone been able to arrange to use a dvorak layout in exams?

I have this problem too.

Hi Mahmoud,

Unfortunately not - I gave up the fight and used qwerty during all my 7 or so exams.  Best of luck in your exams.
