    can a on-screen keyboard be used as a complete substitute for a physical keyboard in terms of speed and accuracy etc. is there any downside?
  2. Depends on the person.

    I remember when people were trying to sell me software back in the 1990's and I would say "Why do I have to type all that when I should be able to click a dropdown?"

    Today I operate a keyboard a gazillion times faster than a mouse.

    What works for you? There's your answer.
  3. If I have my way I do away with my mouse. Keyboard traversals are so much faster for me.

    But Microsoft (Office suite) has taken away a lot of the keyboard shortcuts I used to use often, to my dismay.

    The best combination for me (on a laptop) is a keyboard and a trackball. Very few models provide trackballs.
