## Design

The design of ASTH NEOI was influenced primarily by QWERTY, Colemak DH
and Workman.

Key positions shared with Colemak DH:

    Q W        J L U   ;
    A       G    N E
    Z X C      K   , . /

Key positions shared with Workman:

    Q          J   U P ;
    A S     G  Y N E O I
    Z X        K   , . /

One distinguishing feature of ASTH NEOI is that it strongly favours
inward rolling (and to a lesser extent outward rolling) of some of the
most common English bigrams and trigrams, even where it is necessary
to shift the hand position slightly.

Resemblance to QWERTY was a secondary priority, preserving familiar
shortcut keys and making it easier to learn. Unlike Colemak DH and
Workman, ASTH NEOI retains QWERTY's R, V, B and M positions.
