Some Tips While Touch Typing
On this page, you can learn some tips and tricks to learn and improve your touch typing in short period of time.
1. Don’t Look at Your Fingers
When setting for touch typing position your fingers on the home row. Once you have done so, don’t look at your finger. Looking at your fingers will drastically decrease your typing speed as well as accuracy.
2. Place Fingers Over the Home Row
When typing a letter from the top or bottom row, you will definitely take up or bring down your finger to the responding key on the top or button row. But make sure to relocate your finger over its home key immediately. Leaving a finger on the wrong key will lead to typing errors and reduced typing speed.
