    How to type fast - without looking @ keyboard

    So you always envied your colleague who types without looking at the keyboard? You always thought life would have been much better if you had joined a typing class. You thought your productivity would skyrocket if you knew you could ‘think’ while your fingers did all the typing…

    Well, my friend, I’ll tell you all the secrets of rapid typing. I didn’t join any typing course in my life. But yes, I can type very fast! Without looking at the keyboard! I’ll share some self-invented tips for improving your typing speed…

    Update: Download PDF Version Of This Tutorial From #-Link-Snipped-#

    ..::Improve Your Typing Speed::..

    Now, no mega promises. I don’t have a magic pill which will boost your typing speed after reading this article. So, read at your own risk. I suggest that you read the following article if and only if you have the ‘desire’ to work on your typing speed. Nothing will happen unless you have the desire.

    Tip#1 : Position your fingers
    I know you have been looking at your keyboard for years. But did you ever observe the keys ‘F’ & ‘J’ ? Did you ever wonder what’s so special with them? Did you ever question the presence of a tiny notch on those keys?

    Don’t worry. Those keys are your reference keys. Have a look at the ‘number pad’ on the right hand side of keyboard. ‘5’ is the reference key. Right? Now use your ‘index’ fingers to locate ‘F’ & ‘J’ keys; of course, without looking at the keyboard. Put the other fingers respectively - starting with the little finger of left hand on ‘A’ . The little finger of the right hand on the ‘ ;’ key. I hope you have positioned your hands properly. Both the thumbs should be rested on the space bar.

    Tip#2 : Learn how to press the keys
    Well, don’t smile. This is an important tip. Now, decide which finger will press what key. For example, I press ‘Y’ with the index finger of left hand and ‘U’ with the index finger of right hand. You better know what’s comfortable for you.

    Do you know that you can change the case by pressing shift + key. That is, if you want to type ‘A‘, you need to press shift (hold) & a. Here’s how to do it-

    For the keys pressed using left hand, press the shift key using little finger of right hand & vice-versa. Confused? Let’s take an example. To type a capital ‘A’, I press key ‘A’ by little finger of left hand while holding the ‘shift’ key by little finger of right hand.

    Read above paragraph again if you didn’t understand.

    Tip#3 : Remembering the keyboard
    Easy! This is not a spoiler. Eventually you are going to remember the keyboard. Surprisingly, you won’t even realize that you remember the keyboard. To start with, a little trouble to your brain -

    Have a look at keyboard. ‘E’ & ‘R’ are adjacent. ‘M’ comes just below the index finger of your right hand. Do memorize the location of these keys ‘P’, ‘O’, ‘C’, ‘V’.

    Tip#4 : How to practice
    Just 10 minutes for next 10 days. I bet you’ll type rapidly and without looking at keyboard. At least you will impress yourself.

    - Take an article from newspaper or magazine and fire up your notepad. You may use an online article too. Its totally up to you.

    - Read a complete sentence and try to type it on your notepad without looking at keyboard. Refer Tips 1-2-3 if you need.

    - Initially, you will feel like looking at the keyboard. Don’t cheat yourself.

    - Feel the sense of urgency. Try to type as if you will win a Billion dollars if you type it in shortest possible time. Give it a try, it does a magic.

    - Easy on typos. Don’t worry about typos. You will make less mistakes once you feel comfortable typing without looking at keyboard. Most text processors will aid you by auto correcting your typos.

    A little trouble for next 10 days will change the way you use your computer, forever! Do share your success/failure story with us in this thread.

    reality check

    Well,

    Do a reality check. How many of us really improved typing speed using a typing software? I have used a typing software too, but found that it doesn't really help.

    Let me assure you that my 10-day-typing-wonder tips do work 😀 . I'd recommend that you use above tips while practicing using your typing software.

    Our aim is to produce CEans with rapid typing skills .

    Hey ppl, I used to type the text by seeing the keyboard .. I dont have the right positioning of my fingers... As i go on typing , Sometimes i will type the things without seeing the keyboard but when i realise suddenly i'm typing the text without watching the keyboard i'll lose the rythm.... Have to use some typing softwares to get things straight.. moreover i can't type faster when i sit in some other keyboard which have other dimensions than mine.... 😔

    thanks for the links given ... will try that soon and let you know my speed ...


    Info: I joined the typing class some 6yrs back... but i could never complete the couse coz i had some pretty girls sitting in front of me..... ;-)

    Should we be really using cracked version of any software? This is a different issue altogether and I personally request all CEans not to use Cracked Software.

    There are lot of free tutorials/software available on the Internet.

    Well, Biggie, with respect to the company requirements, is it alright to type fast even while seeing the keyboard?

    I've got a practice with this technique that my dad taught me.:

    asdfgf ;lkhj asdfgf ;lkjhj adsfgf ;lkjhj adsfgf ;lkjhj adsfgf ;lkjhj

    qwertr poiuyu qwertr poiuyu qwertr poiuyu qwertr poiuyu qwertr poiuyu

    zxcvbv /.,mnm zxcvbv /.,mnm zxcvbv /.,mnm zxcvbv /.,mnm and keep doing that along with some sentence patterns and finally the a-z and z-a pattern

    It's quite helpful.

    I suggest practice in dark room! It is very hard to see keyboard in screen light so it automatically increase your typing speed. This is my method. Try it & tell me how is it.
    Again while typing always use proper finger for respective key. Initially it is hard & boring but results come after practice.

    ha ha.. Why 'Y' with left hand? Generally we press 'U', 'Y' with index finger of the Right hand and 'R', 'T' with index finer of the Left hand. 😀

    Seems you got habituated for that And you are too good and too fast 😀

    Hey friends.... After you follow big_k's tips.. I suggest you to test your typing speed (wpm)..

    and this is the best place you can know your typing speed while you compete with others.. Good luck..😉
    I'm a 'Megaracer' on it, with 82 WPM. Best Race: 99 WPM. Not bad. Self-taught. 😀

    Hi!

    I am rather new here, but I enjoy reading your forums alot! I just wanted to share that my typing speed increased after playing MMPORG and I also did some typing races. E.g. like here #-Link-Snipped-# It is free and I enjoy playing when I have nothing else to do.

    Long before our family decided to buy our first computer, my late grandfather already taught us how to type properly without looking at the keys of good ol' typewriter. Proper positioning of the fingers on the keyboard is the best way to do it. There are also typing tutorial software and games that can help you improve your typing skills.

    Well, I used Typing Master, and it really did miracles for me.

    I first practice the tests, often played games, but what one has to basically learn is which finger is used to press which word. The correct positioning of hands in very essential feature in improving your Typing. Later on, when I knew the rules, Facebook chat was the turning point, thought at first, it was a very tedious thing to do for me, but later on, my hands adapted it and now, I don't have to instruct my hands to type something, what I think is actually typed automatically.

    PS : My average Typing speed is now 47 WPM ( as tested in several tests )

    Yeah...!! 😉

    @#-Link-Snipped-# - I don't use any software or service to practice. In fact, I don't practice typing anymore. I just keep on trying to type faster whenever I'm typing; like this post. Ratatype looks like a nice service though. Will give it a try.

    Update: Just took the basic, 1 sentence test on the homepage. It says 119 words per minute.

    Cool, I'm only 54 now. What I like in <a href="https://www.ratatype.com/typing-test/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer">Typing test online ✔️ Get your certificate for free — Ratatype</a> - it's "real life" test with capital letters, commas and so on. It's so hard for me to press "Shift"😡
