Touch typing and hunt and peck

What makes touch typing different from hunt and peck?

Hi! If you aren’t using the touch-typing method, you are likely hunting and pecking. Hunt and peck typists generally use only a few fingers to type and frequently look down at the keyboard to find key locations.

A practiced touch typist can type with much more accuracy, focus, and speed than a hunt and peck typist. When you don’t have to look at the keyboard to type, you can concentrate more on the material you are copying, or listen more closely to the presentation being given.
