  • Help! Touch typing software?

    Hi All,

    After reading the GTD book more, I was convicted of my need to inprove my typing skills. I watched my new department chairman type in his internet password without looking at the keyboard. I thought, "Wow, if I could do that, my life would go so much faster."

    For example, I hit the backspace key at least 20 times typing this.

    Help!

    Thanks!!!

    Fortunately, I learned how to type without looking at the keyboard in highschool. I can definitely sympathize with your plight, though, because I could certainly make more use of keyboard and other shortcuts. You might want to take a look at the following web site:

      Typing Software

      Jason wrote about typing software in his blog:
      Time doing what?

      There is a free on-line test/exercise at TypingMaster so you can check your speed. Sometimes when I get too bound up in work, I go there just to do the test a time or two. Somehow, focusing on that test releases some of the work stress, and I can go back to my task with a freed-up mind.

        Mavis Beacon

        I used Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing when I was a kid, and it is an amazing program. I got such a kick out of it when David mentioned it (was that in his book or on the CD?). I would highly recommend checking it out if you want to increase your typing speed.

          I agree.

          Ten years ago, Mavis Beacon was perfect.

          Now, I assume it must be even better.
