That is, not looking at the keys when you type, but rather looking at the computer screen or printed material. If you can do this, then you will find that with practise, your typing speed can increase up to at least 80 words per minute .You should place your fingers on what is known as the home keys.
These are A, S, D, F from the left hand side of the keyboard and J, K, L on the right hand side. If you feel the F and J keys with both the index fingers, you will feel slide the keys. These are designed to feel your way on to the keys as a base without the need to look.
Once you can type the home keys without looking, you can then progress to learn other keys on the keyboard. Your fingers should always be hovering all of the home keys and move up or down depending on which keys you need to press. You need to practise at least 15 minutes per day when you are learning.
