So a car hit me while I was riding the bike back from work and I fractured my collarbone. And I have to wear a sling on my left arm 24/7 for 4 weeks now.

But that's not the worst part.

Coding with one hand is.

    @sylar182 I once saw a talk of a programmer who actually uses speech-to-text to write code because of health issues.
    He invested quite some time to adapt and modify everything though. He also created a number of custom commands and (I think) some Emacs plugins.

    @deadlyRants there is a good discussion on Quora about this: https://quora.com/What-is-being-don...

    @deadlyRants I firmly believe with a permanent issue i could find the time to modify things, but as it stands with most "out of the box" software you'd end up typing one letter at a time most of the time.

    It would be nice to have something that understood what I meant so I could record code snippets that come to me at the most inopportune moments.

    Tugging with the wrong hand is awkward too.

    While out of box speech to text is not that useful for programming, how abt hiring an someone less skilled who codes as you dictate?
    Should I start a call center for such purposes?... Hahahha

    How about onboard keyboard? Can typing with the mouse be faster?

    @monolithicblob I shouldn't imagine vs one hand typing

    That is so ironic. When I broke my collarbone is when I started to LEARN how to code cause I had all this free time and could sit down for awhile and feel relaxed cause of the drugs. Haha!

    Crybaby.

    My left arm was paralyzed 15 years ago, and I have worked with programming for the past 10 years.
