Proper Typing

Kaitlynn Jennings P-1

Always keep your wrist elevated. Do not prop them on anything.

Learning How to Type Faster

Here are some tips to help you type faster (sitting posture)

  • Sit straight and remember to keep your back straight.
  • Keep your elbows bent at the right angle.
  • Face the screen with your head slightly tilted forward.
  • Keep at least 45 - 70 cm of distance between your eyes and the screen.
  • Đ•xpose the shoulder, arm, and wrist muscles to the least possible strain. The wrists can touch the tabletop in front of the keyboard. Never shift your body weight to the wrists by resting on them.

Typing Speed

  • Do not rush when you just started learning. Speed up only when your fingers hit the right keys out of habit.
  • Take your time when typing to avoid mistakes. The speed will pick up as you progress.
  • Always scan the text a word or two in advance.
  • Pass all typing lessons at Ratatype. It will help you to get above the average typing speed.

7 Keyboarding Methods

  1. Sit up tall, leaning slightly forward.
  2. Sit a 'hand span' away from the keyboard. Place keyboard at the edge of the table.
  3. Center your body with the 'B' key or center of the space bar.

  6. Feet on the floor. Don't sit on your feet or wrap them around your chair.
