Typing is an essential skill for each and every computer user, if you work in an office you need to type a lot of documents. If you are a programmer you need to type thousands of thousands of lines codes.
I think every computer guy must need to type at least 40 WPM(Words Per Minute) with at least 90% accuracy. By the way, it’s not a rule, just my opinion.
As I saw in the real world, many peoples want to increase his/her typing speed, but they don’t know how? And I am sure you are also one of them, Right?
You want to increase your typing speed and accuracy, you want to bring your typing skill to the next level, you want to become a pro in typing.
Well, you are reading the right blog post, this blog is specially written for you, Here I am going to teach you how to increase your typing speed and accuracy.
First of all, you need to know
The Basics of Keyboard
We can’t remember all the keys on the keyboard, but we can train our fingers to remember that. It’s a little bit confusing, Right?
Once your fingers are trained, then you don’t need to focus your eyes on the keyboard, subconsciously your mind gives instruction to your fingers.
This is a stage where you don’t need to search keys on the keyboard, you just need to speak in a low voice, then automatically your finger press those key.
First, you need to know which finger place where and on which key, that you can understand by looking at the above picture. And if you didn’t understand, you can watch videos on YouTube.
All we know practice makes a man perfect. So, you need to do practice to become a pro in typing. Now you may want to ask me, what can I type?
I know you don’t want to type boring newspaper on Microsoft Word, you don’t want to type useless things. You want some challenging things to type, where you will learn typing as well as you have fun.
This is my favorite website to learn typing Because it’s really engaging and fun. Especially, kids can learn typing on this website with animated videos and games.
Not only kids, as well as a bigger man like you, can also learn and practice. I am sure you won’t bore, you will enjoy it, you will say – what an amazing website.
It’s one of the easiest Websites to check your typing speed, and it’s also ad-free because it is developed by a big company called LiveChat.
To practice typing, you just need to open this website and type according to the placeholder and after 1 minute it will show your result, like how many words you typed and what is your accuracy rate.
On the top right side of the screen on the navigation bar, you will see Global scores. This is a chart where you can see how many people type how many words per minute.
So, you need to challenge yourself according to this, suppose if you type 20 words per minute, you need to set a goal for 30 words per minute.
Always set a bigger goal than your current scores, if you confused, what does mean WPM and CPM. It means simply Word Per Minute and Character Per Minute, How many characters and words you typed in 1 minute.
Below are some bonus sites to practice typing, if you like you can use also those sites. These sites also work the same as the above two sites but UI (User Interface) is a little bit bad.
