Touch typing

I’m teaching myself to touch-type.

I’m using a piece of software called Ten Thumbs which is working quite well, although it’s quite basic looking. I’m up to 24 words per minute after a couple of weeks with a c.7% error rate. Although it can be very frustrating, it’s slowly becoming more natural to do, and I can see my technique visibly improving.

I decided to learn when I decided that I should be doing more writing. My handwriting is terrible—even I can’t read it—and very slow and, at the time, my typing was also quite slow. Learning to touch type therefore seems a sensible thing to do.
