Let me share some fun facts and thoughts regarding touch typing.

Using on-screen keyboard

Using an on-screen keyboard offers a convenient way to interact with digital devices, but it has some limitations. While on-screen keyboards are a practical solution for smaller devices, such as smartphones and tablets, they can be a tad uncomfortable to use, primarily due to their compact size. Typing on them without glancing at the keyboard can be challenging. Introducing full-size physical keyboards for devices like the iPad was a natural way to equip such a big device with a keyboard. However, using such a keyboard that limits the screen space and does not give the user any physical response is rather inconvenient. Such keyboards are not destined to be used for typing long texts but rather for filling in forms, typing short messages or e-mails, or typing URLs. It is not surprising that after some time, attached physical keyboards were introduced to tablets, and the typing experience became more comfortable on these devices. With ongoing advancements in technology, on-screen keyboards, especially on tablets, have the potential to evolve, offering a more tactile and user-friendly typing experience that approaches the comfort of physical keyboards.
