Dvorak Keyboard Layout

Is there an option in the settings to switch to the Dvorak keyboard layout? I can barely type on a Qwerty layout and I don't really want to switch back.

It is a physical keyboard, so no, the layout cannot be changed. Where are you using a Dvorak keyboard anyway?

I wasn't actually talking about the physical keys (although I bet with some prying those can be changed :P) I was talking about the software. Usually there is a setting under language or hardware where you can change the layout. I use a Dvorak keyboard on my main laptop and my netbook, the former of which I actually switched the keys around. And I'm using it in the US, if that's what you were asking.

Sorry for that last reponse...

You can find the keyboard layout settings in chrome://settings/languages where you can enable five different input methods including Dvorak and Colemak.

With the new Dev build you can change your keyboard at the boot screen..which is awesome.

Great info, Droymac. Thanks; I'm contemplating moving from MacOS to ChromeOS and lack of Dvorak support would have been a deal-killer for me.
