    Default How do you type?

    Saw a poll & it got me thinking.

    How do you type? I am a fairly fast typer but i have to look at the keyboard, i can't touch type. i wouldn't mind learning to touch type though.

    Any tips from touch typists would be nice

    i touch type but i can't offer tips as my mom enrolled me typing classes. yes at first i thought it was lame but it pays off. so after taking those classes, i practically memorized the entire keyboard. well, most of it. i still don't memorize the symbols above the numbers.

    I can type without looking at the keyboard, I make a letter mistake or such but I prefer looking at the keyboard, but I'm practicing to type without looking, and I type with all my fingers excluding my thumb...

    I look at the keyboard and type, with about 5 fingers xD I usually look up when I get to the end of a sentence and stuff like that though o_O
    Is that what touch type means? That you don't have to look at the keyboard all the time? xD Wouldn't mind learning that! xD

    I never look at the keyboard these days, always touch-typing. The only thing I have a bit of trouble doing is knowing where all the symbols are. But hey.

    Touch typing FTMFW! Although I can only do it properly on my Logitech Wave - on the rubbish keyboards at school (and anywhere else) I can type fast, but have to look more often.

    Touch typing basically just not looking at the keyboard and type. May or may not use all fingers but just not look at the keyboard. Sometimes i type too fast and i jumble up the letters

    I only use 2 fingers and touch type like crazy, I never look at the screen at all . I learnt how to type using habbo... (the roleplaying bit, too hard to explain.)

    if it helps i can type over 90 words a minute. o_O
