So, stenograghy is awesomely fast, right? But the downside of it is that you need to learn a whole new keyboard layout in order to use it AND you need to learn every single word you’d like to type.

kbd aims to be a middle road, exposing a suite of chorded keyboard shortcuts on top of your existing keyboard layout. RightGui+t becomes ‘the ‘. RightGui+u becomes ‘you ‘. You get to use your existing keyboad and layout unchanged, AND each new chord you learn instantly speeds up your current typing.
