"Again my PINKY will not reach the A key at same time as other fingers are on S & D keys.
And there is a half inch gap between my index finger and F key,
In order to type I have to constantly crank my hand left and right. I can type 60 words a minute, but it looks odd for a reason.
The lay out of keys was not for typing it was for using a MANUAL TYPE WRITER as it took infinite more power back then, but that pattern stuck.
Because the TI99/4A keyboard is shrunk I can type faster on it then normal computer keyboards."
This must be caused by how you learned to type. My pinkie is 1 1/4 inch shorter than the next finger, so it shouldn't even reach the Z key. But when I put my left fingers on the home row, my pinkie and index finger are almost straight, while the middle two fingers have much more of an arch which puts all 4 fingers on the ASDF keys. I know lots of people with small hands who have no trouble touch typing.
In any case, I'm sure you're not about to change the way you've been typing for 30+ years.
For what it's worth, the TI99/4A keyboard is not shrunk. It is smaller because there are fewer keys, but if you measure you will see that the key spacing is identical to the PC keyboard.
I have an IOGEAR wireless keyboard, model # GKM681R. This actually is shrunk a bit. From A to semicolon is 6.625" and a standard keyboard is 7.5". Perhaps that smaller size would work better for you.
