Order a new computer mouse – it works just fine.
Get a new job, desk works well for me.
Looking at laptop keyboard – no issues here.
But then I’m amongst the majority – I am right-handed.
One of my work colleagues, my sister, and several of my friends are not in the majority – they are left-handed.
What we ‘righties’ take for granted as doing what it should, can be more difficult for the ‘lefties’. Sure, they adapt – they’ve had to all of their lives. But what if we could offer the same out-of-the-box experience for those who are left-handed?
August 13th 2021 is International Lefthanders Day and to gain more of an understanding of what causes everyday issues, we asked a left-hander, Freya Ellingham what 10 things would make her working day in the office and in the world of technology easier if they were made with the left-handed in mind.
10 Tech Items That Are Harder For Left-Handed People To Use:
10 items most of us take for granted – 10 tech items the left-handed have to adapt to use on a daily basis. And if you think this is all just a little bit of fuss try using all the above products with your left hand and see how adaptable the lefties among us really are.
Thank you Freya for your insight into this – we wish you, and all other left-handers, a very happy International Left-Handers Day.
