Touch typing could be described as a “technical” skill, and you only have to watch today’s army of twofingered typists to see that it’s a dying art. Not only is touch typing invariably much faster than poking away at a keyboard with just two index fingers, but being able to type without taking your eyes off the computer screen also decreases the incidence of error by a huge margin because you can see instantly when you have hit the wrong key.
Unlike years ago when learning to touch-type involved signing up for an expensive course, today there are numerous free resources on the Internet that require nothing more than a small investment of time. A wide range of books that promise to teach you to touch-type in a matter of a few hours is also available.
Take the pain out of using a keyboard and brush up your skills for the workplace or your own home use by taking a free online touch typing course. You’ll become an expert in hours and it’ll increase your typing speed.
