Where did you get this Goldtouch, Midas ?? I think the Natural was the one I used before. Can you adjust the Goldtouch or does the company?
2nd vote here for Goldtouch.
goldtouch keyboards anyone?

I did a search but came up empty handed, which I do not understand as I recall seeing Goldtouch mentioned before.

Are people generally happy with this keyboard?

more info on the Goldtouch.


While it's not to my liking, it may be good for those who aren't really partial to a very clicky, mechanical keyswitch type of feel and who don't need a totally split keyboard.  And it's fairly economical compared to many good ergo keyboards.


Just curious...for those of you who use a Goldtouch

I am considering purchasing a Goldtouch keyboard.  I have had a total of 4 wrist surgeries in the past and did some reading about this keyboard and would like to give it a try.

I am just curious, for those of you who use one, how long does it take to get used to using it? 

Any info you could give would be very helpful!


Goldtouch is brand name. see msg.

I always get mine on eBay. They aren't cheap but you definitely get what you pay for and they are great, in my opinion.
If you still like the Goldtouch, you can get them on ebay nm
Goldtouch Keyboard
I just got a Goldtouch keyboard with seperate number pad.  I can't get my ALT functions to work on the keyboard or the number pad.  I speaking about ALT 171 for 1/2 etc.  Does anyone have a Goldtouch answer?
Goldtouch ergonomic keyboard
Check out ebay for keyboards.  I use a Goldtouch, whic tents up in the middle, like a teepee.  Got used to it real quick.  Now it seems totally strange and uncomfortable to use a "regular" keyboard.
I have a Goldtouch and love it! You can split it sm
to whatever angle you want, and also "tent" it up.  I used to use the Microsoft Natural and loved it, but this is even better!  
Nope, unfortunately, the Goldtouch doesn't

And I don't like the key feel of the Goldtouch that much (not clicky enough for me).

Is your Lexmark anything like these?  (My dream keyboard, sigh.  Somebody who posts here has one of them, but they're in the really prohibitive price range now, something like $500+.)http://www.clickykeyboards.com/index.cfm/fa/categories.main/parentcat/12675 

If so, what a shame yours is wearing out. Maybe you could get it repaired?  http://www.pckeyboard.com/FAQs.html#Q8

Why, oh why, oh why, did they stop manufacturing good split keyboards like this?  Especially the IBMs.  I might try a Comfort ErgoFlex or ErgoMagic next time.  http://www.sforh.com/keyboards/split.html

Thanks so much for the followup.  :)  And best of luck.  I well know how hard it is to think about going to any other style (totally split, with separation, that is) of keyboard now. 

I have a Goldtouch. It has held up for two or three years already. nm
Use mine for work sometimes, but plug in my Goldtouch sm
keyboard and "real" mouse.   Obviously, too cumbersome for just "play" at a coffee house or something, but when I travel, I do pack the "good stuff" with me 
I have tried almost all the weird keyboards there are. I buy them off Ebay. GoldTouch is my
Could someone help me on my Tech Help question re. Goldtouch keyboard?
Please see my question on the Technical Help board.  Thanks
I haven't tried the Kinesis, but I use a Goldtouch, and love it. sm

You can split it however far you want it, "tent" it up and do whatever you need to make it as comfortable as possible.   I have heard good things about the Kinesis (are you referring to the one with the "wells?"), but it is kinda pricey, and I think it takes awhile to get used to it.  Let me know what you think if you get one.


Good luck! 

Love my Goldtouch -- can spread it apart and tent it up however you like. nm

I love my Goldtouch -- can usually find them reasonably priced on eBay. nm

Ilove my Goldtouch -- you can make it a "'weird shaped" or not so weird shaped sm
as you want.   You can split it apart and angle it however you like and even tent it up too.  It definitely has helped me a LOT!  Before that, I used the Microsoft Natural and loved it, but this is even better.  :-)

Has anyone bought and used these keyboards within the last year?  I want a new keyboard and was looking at the above 3 mentioned.  I was favoring the Goldtouch but when I goggled Goldtouch reviews there seemed to be so many negative reviews - keys sticking, keyboard collapsing in tented position, etc.  Has anyone bought these keyboards within a year or so and could you tell me how you like them?  Would appreciate your input so very much.

best for me is www.rxlist.com

just type 1 or 2 letters and add *, then you'll get the drugs containing those letters.

Did you try the search at the top?
Do a search for
Silent Night Radio. Download it and run the program and look for Radio Free Colorado.

They have. Search the net. nm
do a search
This was all discussed in quite detail about a week or so ago.  Do a search and see what you find.  With only a year's experience you may have a little bit of trouble.  You say you are working for a local MTSO, what are they paying you, add on 20 to 30%.  Do they print?  You have to be prepared to do any kind of job, tapes, digital, printing, delivering, pick-up, transferring files before you advertise to get an account and have all the equipment necessary and everything ready to go.  But just like every other service, you gotta go out and make the calls to get the account, it isn't going to come to you and knock on your door unless you have been an established business.   Check in to see about a business license, register your name with the state, get ready for taxes, etc.   
do a search
I ran a search and got 0
Sorry to repeat a question but I had run a search before I posted and it produced nothing - I don't know why.  Forgive me for being a bother.
Do a search
If you do an archieve search yo will see that this is talked about every 7 to 10 days at least.  It is no big secret it is basically what you feel your service is worth and then figuring up what you rexpenses are, paper, delivery, etc.     As stated there are too many differntials to state flatly how much to charge -- it is not like minimum wage -- but it seems like a good starting point is 0.12 cpl but again every part of the country is different and what you will be providing in your service is different than mine.  But do a search as we went into this quite extensively about a week or so ago.    Patti
Do a search

Do a search as this has been really talked about several times during the past month or so.



You have to have the word exactly the same when you do the search if there is an extra space between first and last name or between two words it will not pull it up.  I use the search from my START key rather than from working in the microsoft word.  I also name my documents with an extension .doctor initial, i.e. .mb .jn .eif or whatever so if I know the doctor I can specify in advanced search to look only at that doctor's documents.  But if I am looking for a type of report, i.e. Colonoscopy, op note on crushed finger/nailbed, then I just put in those words and tell it to search all "My documents" or wherever you file off your reports and it does so.  I have had very good luck with this.   Hope this is what you were talking about. 


Sorry - should have done a search

I see this question has been answered many times. Never mind.


If you type those schools into the search box for MTSTars, you will come up with hundreds of repsonses to that very question.  As well as a wealth of information.

Good luck with your decision. 

search it
I would suggest you either do a Google search OR you can type those phrases into the search box here on MTStars.  I am sure those questions have been answered on here before and you can probably gain the information you are looking for.  People on here are very knowledgable about that stuff. :)
I did a search. take a look at this : sm but I will keep looking

archive search
Is it just me or is the archive search here almost useless? Every time I look for something, even my own past posts, I get terrible results.
Oh, this could be a treasure to search thru
Awesome! There is so much info out there, if I could just FIND it! Previous poster is right, can't even find my own posts with what's up now.
