One hundred percent that everyone has seen in their lives on TV or even in life, when people type very quickly, while not looking at the keyboard itself. Perhaps someone was wondering: “Is this even possible?” The answer is unequivocally: “Yes!” All you need to know is the areas of responsibility of each finger on the keyboard and a lot, a lot, of training. In this article, we will talk about just that. We will tell you about each zone separately, advise special programs, talk about the methodology and set a vector, following which you can learn how to quickly type on the keyboard.
Before we talk about the areas of responsibility of each finger on the keyboard, it's worth talking about why this is needed at all. After all, a huge number of people are typing by looking at the keyboard and using two fingers at the same time, and some do not at allone.
First of all, and no one will argue with that, it's cool. Typing at great speed, while not looking at the keyboard, is, of course, practical. But since not many people can do it, it adds some coolness.
Besides that, of course, it's convenient. What is there to talk about if every user of a social network has encountered such a problem when, looking at the keyboard, you type Russian text, and looking at the monitor, you see only Latin characters arranged in an incomprehensible order. When typing without looking at the keyboard, this would never happen, because you always have everything in front of your eyes, and you can make adjustments on the go.
It's still impossible to cancel the fact that if you type on the keyboard blindly, you will save a lot of time. That is, if you work on the Internet or as an editor, then you will be able to do your work much faster, which, in turn, will bring you more profit.
Enough about the benefits. It's time to talk about the ten finger method and talk about the areas of responsibility of each finger on the keyboard.
Ten finger method
The "ten fingers" method is quite simple. It implies that you will use all your fingers to speed up your typing several times. If you are not yet trained in this technique, then right now you can check how many fingers you use when typing. Most likely, this figure will equal two, and if everything is completely sad, then one. Imagine,if you use only a few fingers, while typing (let's say) at a decent speed, how much will this speed increase if all 10 fingers are used!
But enough ranting, let's get down to business. Ten fingers is one thing, but it's another thing to know what is the basic position of the fingers on the keyboard. That's what we're going to talk about now.
Arrangement of fingers on the keyboard
Looking ahead, it’s worth saying that you will see the circuit itself a little lower in the image, but before that, it’s worth telling a little about how it all works.
So, we have ten fingers, each of them is assigned a certain key on the keyboard, some more, some less. There is also an initial arrangement of all fingers on the keyboard, with which you need to start typing.
As you can see in the image, each individual finger is used in its own part of the keyboard. This contributes to the fact that they are not intertwined, the right hand belongs to the right part, the left - to the left.
The initial arrangement, so to speak, the main position of the fingers on the keyboard, is as follows:
- thumbs of both hands are responsible for the Space key or, as it is also called, "Space";
- the index finger of the right hand is on the letter "O";
- index of the left hand - to "A";
- middle right hand - "L";
- middle left hand - "B";
- nameless right hand - "D";
- nameless left hand - "Y";
- little finger of the right hand - "F";
- little finger of the left hand - "Ф".
To make it easier to find the corresponding keys in the dark, the keyboard has small bulges on the "A" and "O" keys.
What to do next
So, we just looked at the areas of responsibility of each finger on the keyboard, and also talked about their initial arrangement, now you can start learning. Looking at the image with the diagram, initially remember which finger belongs to which key, and then try to write a word without looking at the keyboard. Of course, at first it will be terribly uncomfortable, but if you do not give up and stop, then over time you will succeed, and in the end you will be able to master the technique of touch typing.
If nothing works out for you, then the so-called "Exercise Keyboard" will help you. These are kind of games that offer mini-rounds that are aimed at blind recruitment. This will not only diversify the learning process, but also speed it up.
