3. Advice for successful touch typing practice
Touch typing improves typing speed and accuracy. A touch typist never looks at the keyboard. The fingers hit the right keys by force of habit. The typist is entirely focused on the text being typed, reading the words and phrases as the fingers type the text reflexively. Touch typing can be learned by performing special exercises.
Stage one of the process begins with learning the home row of the keyboard (the row beginning with the Caps Lock key). Looking at the keyboard is strictly forbidden. This is followed by learning the lower and upper rows, the numbers row, upper-case letters and special symbols.
Stage two involves memorizing frequently used syllables and typing words containing these syllables.
Stage three involves typing actual text to perfect the skills acquired.
Be patient and practice as often as possible. Despite the simple Touch typing technique, it takes some time to gain high speed. By following the rules, you will see your speed and accuracy improve over time.
