First off, I'd like to preface this by saying I am probably the least knowledgeable person here with regards to computers. That said, I'm eager to learn.

I have recently switched from using a QWERTY keyboard layout. I now use the Dvorak layout with activated Mac command shortcuts.

Overall, I'm quite happy with the switch. However, I would like modify the layout so that it makes my natural preferences an asset rather than a hindrance.

Basically, I want to swap the apostrophe/quotations (' "), comma/left bracket (,<), and period/right bracket (. >) with the last three keys on the top row of the Dvorak layout - the question mark and forward slash (? /), the addition and equal sign (+ =), as well as the back slash and straight line (\ |).

Current layout

Attached is a visual image of what I'd like to do.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
