What if I am in a place with no access to Internet, what are other mediums can I use to practice my accuracy?
You can easily use any material to practice your typing accuracy using a basic word processing program, but if you do, make sure to turn any “auto-correct” features off before you begin. It’s also helpful to try to avoid using the [Backspace] key when you’re testing yourself on accuracy. While it’s perfectly all right to delete mistakes in typing, you’ll get a better sense of your true overall typing accuracy without it.

That’s a great question! The core of touch typing is the development of muscle memory, so it is so important to practice as much as possible! But you’re right, we don’t always have access to the internet, so sometimes we must get a little creative.
As Aidan suggested, there are plenty of computer programs that utilize the keyboard without needing internet. You could type your thoughts or type along to a conversation. If you are without a keyboard entirely, consider tapping your fingers on a blank desk, imagining where the keys would be placed. Or try drawing out a keyboard on a piece of paper - can you do it? Additionally, any activity that practices muscle memory is helpful, especially if it involves the hands. Playing the piano is great typing practice!
Hope that’s helpful!
