The truth is that none of them started that way, and they had to learn.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          In this piece, you’ll learn how to type faster with some useful tips and techniques:

                                                                                                                                                                                                          1. Work on Your Workspace and Typing Area

                                                                                                                                                                                                          A lot of people believe that fast and correct typing will start when you can master the keyboard. But the truth is, you will need to begin with getting a workspace that is clean, properly ventilated, and comfortable. Also, for optimal typing, you will need to get a table and not out your laptop or computer on your lap.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Advertising

                                                                                                                                                                                                          If you will be working for an extended period, make sure that you’re comfortable.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          2. Fix Your Posture

                                                                                                                                                                                                          If you want to type well, the correct posture will be seated, straight backed, and with your feet planted a little apart, flat on the ground. You wrists should also be positioned in such a way that your fingers can cover the keyboard. Tilt your head a bit as you can look at the screen properly as well.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Adjust your office chair so you’ll be able to easily play with the seat and get a proper posture.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          3. Hold Your Posture

                                                                                                                                                                                                          It is also very important that you keep this position as you type. Ensure that your posture is good, and this way, you will be able to avoid getting aches on your wrists. These aches have a way of slowing you down and keeping you out of rhythm.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Keep your back and shoulders from hunching, and while relaxation should be your key goal as you work on, also be sure to stay upright.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Advertising

                                                                                                                                                                                                          4. Familiarize Yourself with the Keyboard

                                                                                                                                                                                                          The keyboard is your tool here, so you will need to get to know it. Fortunately for you, most keyboards that you see will make use of the same layout; the QWERTY layout. It is called that because of the letters that make the top left corner. You’ll also find that a lot of keyboards have keys around these main ones that do several tings.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Here’s a nice video to help you familiarize yourself with the keyboard:

                                                                                                                                                                                                          So, work on memorizing the positions of the letter keys, as well as some of the most used punctuation marks. You will need to understand where they are without looking at the keyboard. This is the only way you can learn to type fast.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          5. Close Your Eyes and Say the Keys out Loud as You Press Them

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Another great way to get to know the positions of these letters is to look away from them and directly at the screen. Then, pronounce the keys as you press them and see if you’re correct. This step will go a long way in helping you to memorize the keys, and it can easily help you

                                                                                                                                                                                                          6. Start Slowly with Touch-Typing

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Improving your speed as you type is a matter of developing your skill over time. However, the quickest way to master typing will be touch typing. If this is your first time with touch typing, then you might spend a lot of time on this step. However, once you can type without looking at the keys, your speed will increase.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Advertising

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Now, this typing method might feel a bit alien, but you’ll improve with time.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          7. Stick with It and Don’t Look at Your Hands

                                                                                                                                                                                                          The whole essence of this step is to keep you from looking at your keyboard as you type, so that your fingers are made to learn how the keys work.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Again, you might find that your speed reduces when you begin, but just stick to it. Touch typing will help you to reach higher speeds and master it.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          8. Practice, Practice, Practice

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Mastering the touch typing technique will prove to be a bit finicky, but once your posture is up and you get your fingers where they should be, you can only improve by practicing.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Spare some time on a daily basis to practice and master both accuracy and speed. With continuous practice, you will also notice that you make fewer errors with time.

There is no limit to the kind of things you can type, and you can even make the practice process more fun. So, get an e-book, an online lecture, or listen to a talk show and type. You could watch a TV show as well.

But it is important that you don’t get obsessed with how many words you are able to type in a minute. Rather, ensure that you stay comfortable while you type. With time, your words per minute will increase, and you’ll be able to clock up some high numbers.
