T is for Typing
My mum could type and gave lessons in typing around the dining room table. I was able to sit in on these lessons and learnt the basic touch typing method so I am able to type without looking at the keyboard. I never did do the numbers lesson so I have to look at the keys whenever I need these. I learned on a typewriter and we had to press each key to a correct timing. If she had had a metronome I'm sure she would have used it to keep us all in time.
Being able to type has been an advantage to me throughout my working life and even now it is extremely useful when typing up blog posts.
My DS never had typing lessons but because he has been around computers all his life his fingers are a whizz around the keyboard. In his professional life he has a keyboard with no letters, numbers or characters showing. All the keys are totally blank and yet he is able to find his way around at speed. His fingers are a blur!
This video shows someone typing on a blank keyboard. (It's extremely boring but shows it can be done.)
