I sure can type faster than I can scratch.

To someone like me, with rheumatoid arthritis, the keyboard is really a god-
send. Holding a pencil or light pen or pen input device requires muscles of
mine that have atrophied, and the pain is really terrific.
My fingers stay swollen and my hands are really clumsy.

If I can use a keyboard, though, I'm fine. In fact, I can still type 75wpm.
I would hate to use anything different for my technical documentation tasks.
