Let me share some fun facts and thoughts regarding touch typing.
Typing with little fingers
Typing on the keyboard using little fingers is an uncommon practice for most individuals. Little fingers tend to receive less attention because they are considered less comfortable for typing and require more training than other, more agile, and stronger fingers. Observing someone who hasn't learned touch typing techniques, you'll unlikely to see them using their little fingers when looking at the keyboard. Typing with little fingers can initially be tiring, and discomfort may arise as these fingers aren't accustomed to typing. However, some pain is standard when training initially, as in any skill that demands effort. It's a sign of progress, much like the discomfort experienced when learning to play the guitar. To alleviate this, taking breaks, stretching, and gentle finger exercises can help minimize typing-related discomfort. The key to eliminating typing pain is prioritizing rest, ensuring that your keyboard experience remains a source of improvement in your life rather than discomfort.

Lesson 3: Learn S and L
Use your Ring finger on both hands left and right and Place gently on their respective keys S and L . Start typing practice, Use your thumb to press Space Bar. It is very important for your fingers to be able to go to these keys at any time, at a split second's notice. Practice taking your hands away and placing them on these keys several times, until you can do it confidently, and without looking.

Typing Training - Practice Free Typing Lessons with Online Tutor
The free typing lessons supply the complete "How to type" package. Animated keyboard layout and the typing tutor graphic hands are used to correct mis-typing by showing the right way to type for your learning and practice experience. Lessons' difficulty gradually raises as it starts from only 2 characters and ends with the entire keyboard. When the lesson ends, you can learn a lot from the practice trends: WPM, accuracy and errors distribution.
Tips for success:
- When you practice typing - don't look at the keyboard - not even a quick peek! Look only at the screen.
- The basic position can be easily found without looking at the keyboard - feel the bumps on 'F' and 'J'.
- At first typing tutorials , practiced letters won't spell out words. As you get to know the keys, "real" words and sentences will be used. That is the only way to learn typing correctly.
- Remember to type test your speed periodically. With our typing test you can check for both speed and accuracy progress. The number of words per minute indicates your typing level. If you are still unsatisfied with the results - go back to the typing tutors and keep practicing!

- Principles for Effective Learning
- No mistakes. Always be sure and in control. Follow the principle of 100% correct practice: to make a mistake is to learn incorrect things, and to confuse that which you already know.
- Slower is faster. Speed comes from certainty. The more you type things correctly, no matter how slow it has to be, the more certain you will be, and the faster you will become a proficient typist. Increase speed only when you feel sure enough to do so.
- Don't look at the keyboard! If you don't know where a key is, look at the keyboard to find it, then look away and type the key. Do not guess; always be sure.
- Type to a steady rhythm. Generally, the time between keystrokes should be the same, giving you a sense of flow and the ability to scan ahead at a constant speed.
- Relax. No unnecessary or dysfunctional tension. Enjoy the rhythm of your own typing!
- Hit the keys squarely in the center. If you find you aren't consistently doing so, SLOW DOWN!!! It should feel good to type!
Instructions for Use
- Press the "Click here to start" button, then type what you see on the screen. If you type correctly, the letter will turn to grey. If you err, it won't, and you will hear an error sound.
- To do the same again (which you should do if you make ANY mistakes), press the "Go again!" button that appears when you finish.
- Remember, shoot for no errors!! That is the most important thing right now. Speed means nothing; certainty and correctness are what's important.
- For practical purposes, you can consider yourself having mastered an exercise only if you are able to type three reloaded screens of exercises in a row in under 60 seconds each, with no errors, confidently.
If you are accessing this course on the desktop or a laptop, Google Chrome (currently the most popular browser in the world) is the recommended browser for this site, and switching to it will likely solve any issues you may be experiencing. It is a free download , easy to install, and available for all platforms.
Other major browsers, such as Apple Safari , Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer should generally be ok, however please make sure you are using a current version. Older versions or other browsers may give inconsistent results.
Some third-party extensions for web browsers, such as ad blockers, might interefere with the typing functionality. If you are using such an extension, turn it off temporarily and see if that is the cause. If so, it should be possible to whitelist this site so that the extension is turned off for this site only.
This course is not designed to be used with a soft keyboard on a tablet, although it has been successfully tested to work with iOS devices (iPad and iPhone). If you are on Android or a Windows Mobile device it is hit or miss, however it should work absolutely fine with an external keyboard. It is highly recommended to learn touch typing on a physical keyboard for the tactile feedback, and bluetooth keyboards can be obtained very inexpensively these days (i.e. as little as $10). This is a VERY worthwhile investment to learn touch typing, a skill which will last you a lifetime.
If you're still having problems, you can still access the old, Flash-based version of the course here .
