AZERTY Keyboard

Email was frustrating in France thanks to the bizarre AZERTY keyboard used in that country. Several letters are reversed, punctuation marks are impossible to find, and the shift key must be pressed to type numbers. Using it is what I imagine post-stroke recovery to be like.

In Belgium we use azerty keyboards too, and I find the qwerty ones far more difficult.
If you hit the num lock you can type with the numbers on the rightside though, you don't have to press shift all the time.
