In order for you to start learning on how to type using your Typesy account. You can login and go to Courses and then there is a drop down button that you can click and choose Interactive you will see courses that you can take and learn how to touch type.
You will also learn how and where we can use our finger tips on the keyboard.
Enjoy and have fun.
Hello, @Kenny_Shin !
Typesy focuses on teaching touch typing, a method of typing that relies on developing muscle memory to allow the typist to type without having to look at the keys.
When you start the process of learning to touch type, begin by practicing your finger positions. Each finger has assigned letters based on the positioning of the hand over the keyboard. The middle row on a QWERTY keyboard will serve as the home row, the starting position for each finger. First learn to become comfortable with this starting position which is made easier on many keyboards with a raised ridge on the F and J keys. These markers indicate where the index fingers should be placed on the home row, so you can feel your way back to home row rather than needing to look at the keyboard directly. With each finger positioned on the home row - the left index finger can feel for the bump on the F key, and the right index finger can feel for the J key. The remaining fingers rest on the adjacent keys - the left hand fingers resting on D, S, A, and the right hand fingers resting on K, L, and semicolon key. Both thumbs will rest on the space bar. When typing, each finger has an assigned zone of keys, each requiring a movement of one or two keys away from home. After a finger has moved to type a letter, it will return to its home position.
Once you have developed the muscle memory for reaching each key, you’ll be well on your way to mastering the skill of touch typing.
“Typesy like typing” is called touch typing! This refers to a style of typing that uses a sense of touch rather than sight. Through structured repetition, you will strengthen muscle memory, learning which fingers to use for each key based on hand placement. Touch typing involves the specific placements of all eight fingers and both thumbs; once muscle memory is strong enough, this style allows for the typist to focus on the screen rather than the keyboard.
Typesy will assess your typing using the Typesy Mastery Metric. Keyboarding ability is measured in both speed and accuracy. Typing speed is measured in the total amount of words per minute (WPM) and accuracy is measured as a percentage of words typed correctly. Typesy’s metric adds a third area of content knowledge which measures the ability to touch type specifically, that the finger positioning aligns with the touch typing method. It allows you to know how well you’re progressing towards a mastery of touch typing.
Good luck! With dedication, patience, and plenty of practice, you’ll be touch typing in no time!
