Typing Tests

Typing speed and accuracy:

Given that touch typing is an automatic skill it is logical to associate an expert typist with fast and accurate typing. The principal benefit of touch typing is that data input via a keyboard no longer requires conscious thought, or, visual confirmation.

While composing a letter or essay it is no longer necessary for the writer to interrupt their train of thought to scan the keyboard for the location of a particular key, or, to correct a typing mistake.

A touch typist copying from a source text doesn't need to divide their attention between the source, screen and keyboard as an untrained typist would but can turn their full attention to the source text, confident that their touch typing skill will translate thought into data input without error.

These are attainable benefits resulting from constant practice. The end result can be demonstrated as an impressive display of typing speed, where the typist's fingers keep pace with thought, but the underlying demonstration is one of reliable accuracy that typing practice has elevated to speed.
