What Is Touch Typing?
Touch Typing - the practice or skill of typing using all one's fingers and without looking at the keys.
How Does it Work
Home row position
The home row is a section of the keyboard that is central to all the other keys. Positioning your fingers over the home row allows you to more easily reach the other keys on the keyboard. When touch typing, returning your fingers to what is referred to as the "home row position" will assist you to type without looking at the keyboard.
Each of your fingers has a specific area of the keyboard to cover. Your index, middle and ring fingers move either up or down from their home position, your thumb covers the space bar, and your pinky fingers cover the rest (the red keys).
