“I was afraid of the Internet… because I couldn’t type.” Jack Welch
Decades of professional observation, show that the three worst styles of hunt and peck typing, computer keyboarding are:
Quick 2-finger hunt and pecking – rapid hit on any key followed by lots of backspacing and deleting to correct lots of mistakenly hit keys
60 second gaze hunt and pecking – gaze at everything on the keyboard for about 30 to 60 seconds before very apprehensively pressing the right key
One finger hunt and mash pecking – hovering over the keyboard with one finger then banging down too hard on the right key
People who can key at a rate of 15 accurate words or more a minute with both hands may truly have a more enjoyable Internet usage experience than those who do not key at all or, especially when typing/keying for professional and school needs.
