Set up a schedule. Unless you establish a "schedule for learning"
it is all to easy to find an excuse for not practicing. It takes practice to
develop touch-keyboarding skills.
Do you have an extra fifteen minutes? Then you can complete a couple
of practice exercises. It might not sound like much, but you have helped develop
your typing skills.
Type without looking at the keys. Use a quick stroke to strike each key.
Do not “press” or “mash” the key. Strike the key quickly and move on!
Locate the home-row keys. Force yourself to use the correct
fingers to strike the keys. If you forget which finger to use, look at the picture
accompanying the exercise. The beginning exercises are extremely important because
you are developing correct keystroke patterns.
Magic is not needed. Learning how to type is not magic. It requires
patience and more practice.
Don’t worry about speed and accuracy. Relax when typing the beginning
exercises. However, always use the correct finger/keystroke pattern. Speed and
accuracy will develop naturally through practice once your fingers have been
More practice? If more practice is needed, retype the exercise. Practice
each exercise several times until satisfied with your typing skills. Only go
to the next typing exercise when you are comfortable.
Whisper. Whisper each letter as you use a quick stroke to strike and
bounce off keys. Do not “press” or “mush down” on the key. Return your
finger to the assigned home row location.
Posture. There is a tendency to forget the importance of posture.
If you don't sit up straight and keep your feet flat on the floor,
the angle of your arms will change; thus changing the keystroke reach.
Tired? When tired, take a break. Fatigue can result in your concentration
Finger placement. Gently place the fingers of your left hand on the
a s d f keys and the fingers of your right hand on the j k l ;
keys. Your fingers should be slightly curved. Your wrists should be low but not
resting on the keyboard. Your elbows should be close in, next to your side.
Thumbs. While your fingers are gently touching the home-row keys, the
thumbs should be slightly above the space bar (the long bar at the bottom of the
keyboard). To press the space bar, make a quick downward motion with your right thumb.
Be patient. Once the correct finger-keystroke patterns are used, speed
and accuracy occur naturally.
