Does Keyboard Matter?

Does keyboard matter in touch typing practice?

Hi there,

Yes. : Even the best typist needs a good keyboard! If one of your keys is broken, you’re not going to be able to get much done. Making sure that your keyboard is in good shape is crucial for being able to get your work done properly.

Hi Zakaria,

There are quite a few things you can check to be sure you are set up and ready to go with your keyboard and monitor before you type. Set up your keyboard so that it is flat or slightly elevated. Do not have your keyboard slanted downward. Your upper arms should not have to extend very far forward to reach the keyboard or the mouse. Your arms should be able to rest at a 90 degree angle. If not, adjust the distance of your keyboard from the edge of the desk. Your monitor should be 20-40 inches from you as you type. I hope that helps!
