Forum Question: Creating a shortcut for the Dvorak Keyboard.

Okay, I know how to turn my Qwerty keyboard into Dvorak, but does anyone know how to create a shortcut to do it? I have to go into the System Preferences, click on Language & Text, then click on Input Sources, uncheck US, then check Dvorak. Is there a quicker way to do this? Like create a shortcut of command+q+d. Is that possible?

    In that Input Sources preferences pane, look at the bottom. There is a checkbox for “Show Input menu in the menu bar”.
    Turn that on. Also, check off both keyboards in the list. Now they will appear in the menu bar on the right near your date and time. You can easily switch between them.
    Plus, you can also set keyboard shortcuts in the Input Sources. Go to System Preferences, Keyboard, Keyboard Shortcuts, Keyboard and Text Inputs. Then look through the list for “Select next/previous input source” and set it.
