Important Points to Remember While Learning Typing

Keep the Eyes on the Monitor:

It is easy to learn the key positions faster if we don’t peek at the keyboard while practicing. We can check the keyboard picture on the screen to fnd it, if we forget postion of any key.

Keep Wrists Up:

Keep the wrists up and straight when typing. Resting the wrists on the wrist rest or the desk will create an uncomfortable angle making  it more difficult to move the fingers. This causes errors and slows down. Holding the wrists too high has the same effect increasing the tension in the shoulders.

Health Tips While Typing:

The sitting posture is very important while typing. Following points must be remembered:

·         Adjust the seat height so that the feet rest flat on the floor.
·         Make sure that there is no pressure on the back of the knees.
·         Adjust the desk height so that the wrists can rest comfortably on it.
·         The forearms should be leveled with the desk top.
·         The upper and forearms should form a 90 degree angle or more.

 Now check that display, Keyboard and Mouse are placed correctly.

·         Place the monitor directly in front; at about an arm’s length away.
·         Adjust the top of the computer screen to a little below eye level. The viewing angle should be slightly downwards while typing.
·         Place the keyboard right in front, aligned with the monitor.
·         Place the Mouse next to the Keyboard on the same plane. When using the Mouse, keep the wrists straight and the upper arms close to the body.
