Touch - typing technique
How does touch typing method work? Everything is simpler than can seem. The keyboard is divided in areas; moreover each area corresponds to appropriate quantity of fingers, for instance keys QAZWSX should be typed with a little finger. The position of hands also depends on areas; your left hand's fingers should be placed on home row keys ASDF and your right hands' fingers should be on keys JKL;. The letters on keyboard are positioned so that most frequently used letters are placed in central row and are pressed with forefingers.
By way, there are a lot of different variants of layouts. The type of layout is also important in development of technique of typing. The most habitual and accustomed is QWERTY, moreover it is most frequently used layout, but according to results of testing Dvorak proved to be more effective as it increased speed of typing for 20 - 40 percents.
In touch typing not only correct position of hands and type of layout are significant, but position of body also plays an essential role. Your posture should be straight, legs shouldn't be crossed, palms and fingers should be loose as though they rest over keyboard. Imagine that you are having an apple in your hand and it is going to slip. You should hit keys lightly and abruptly. The quieter sound from keyboard is, better it is. Touch keys with finger cushions and after hit withdraw finger from key.
Hence, I recommend you not to procrastinate and to set to touch typing right now. Remember "Knowing how to study is like knowing how to fish. It is a set of learning skills that lasts a lifetime and brings many rewards. Just as there are ways to know that you are a competent fisherman, there are ways to develop skills competency." And one of them is touch typing.
