Typing practice - lesson 8

close and start typing

You have mastered most of the keyboard keys responsible for entering letters. It is time to summarize the typing lessons for the entire row of keyboard keys. Your fingers should now move freely upwards from the base row. After that, when you press the key, don't force your fingers to unnaturally return down to the base row. Let movement be natural. The only important thing is, if possible, after a pause in typing, to return with your fingers pointing to the keys with the insets.

While doing this part of the course, it is worth considering why I use the terms 'fast typing' and 'touch typing' alternately. Well, except that I don't want to repeat myself, there are other reasons. Touch typing is fast. You don't waste time looking at the keyboard. You don't waste time thinking about where the key is located on the keyboard. You don't waste time on inefficient finger movement. By typing with all fingers, you reduce the time to click a key in every respect. The fingers responsible for clicking on a given key when typing with ten fingers are just above or below the key. Such way of typing is simply fast.

It can be said, however, that not only the touch typing is fast, but you can type faster without following following any typing good practices. It's a fact that you can do something incorrectly but effectively with the same effect. Why would you want to change your habits if you type incorrectly, but fast? You do not need to do this. You can live with some defects. You don't have to change anything if what you do gives decent results. However, I won't believe that if you make an effort to improve your bad keyboard typing habits, you'll type slower. Of course, I mean a permanent change, not a learning process that may have just begun.

The keyboard has been built in such a way as to give maximum typing efficiency. You have 10 fingers, use them to type correctly, use it for touch typing. Use all 10 fingers to type quickly.
