Why are keyboards not in alphabetical order?
There is another theory than the video that suggests the QWERTY keyboard layout was influenced by this
The theory suggests that the QWERTY keyboard was influenced by Morse code. While the theory about reducing typewriter jams is widely accepted, some historians have proposed that Morse code played a role in shaping the arrangement of keys.
According to this theory, Christopher Sholes, the inventor of the typewriter and the QWERTY layout, may have been inspired by Morse code when designing the keyboard. Morse code is a system of representing letters and numbers using combinations of dots and dashes, and it was well-known during the time when the typewriter was being developed. Some argue that Sholes may have organized the keys to make typing Morse code more efficient, as early telegraph operators were required to have a good understanding of Morse code.
