  • Any common mistakes to avoid when switching to Colemak?
    I spend most of my time on Monkeytype, with short forays into websites like and Colemak Academy. I practice all my mistyped words after each test.

  • Quicker non touch typing - should I learn?

    Got mine a few weeks ago. It's awesome.'s Typing Jungle lessons are great. I got the letters down pretty good, but I still need to get proficient with the special symbols. You can use and use your own text to practice as well, which I'm using these days to practice all the special symbols. - Source: Reddit / 24 days ago

    One thing that helped me transition to a split board was a site like or where I could practice touch typing. I got a Moonlander last year and during the first week I went from being a competent typist, to utter shit. I hadn't realized what a crappy touch typist I'd turned into over the years. Sort of the same situation. Writer here, and I spend about 10 hours a day at my desk. - Source: Reddit / 24 days ago

  • day 4 of trying for 100wpm (60sec) [pr-94wpm]. i matched my pr today! someone in the last post suggested i should work on my accuracy and i did just that, to which i saw an instant improvement.

  • Thoughts on practicing typing gibberish
    Well, the way works, is it gets the keys you have trouble with, and then makes them appear more often. It is certainly going to be more effective tho. I would do both however, as the WPM Keybr states start to depress you if you use it long enough lol!!!!!! :). - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago

  • hard to type because of small hands
    Other than that, I'd suggest you start out by using a site like to train proper touch typing technique for a couple of weeks / months and see where that takes you. Depending on your preference, learn an optimized layout or stick to QWERTY. If you end up still thinking the problem is hardware-related rather than due to a lack of proper technique / training, plenty of good advice has already been offered... - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago

  • LPT: You really should pay attention typing class in school.
    Try It starts with very few letters, and adds new ones progressively, so you only have to mind about a new letter at the time and can properly focus on using the right finger. That's how I learned to touch type (albeit I'm not a pro at it) and I've never done any typing class. - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago

    I have a board with blank keycaps, so learning touch typing was painful, but eventually I got there. It isn't a layout that's available in the main typing practice sites, so that can be weird. I used with my layout on paper taped to the wall. - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago

  • I can type with 2 fingers at 125wpm
    If you do decide to learn I would recommend watching some youtube videos (note that when it comes to ZXC some people prefer hitting C with index, X with middle and Z with ring, whereas the recommended method is C with middle, X with ring and Z with pinky. Go with whichever you find more comfortable) and then go through all the letters on to get comfortable with it. - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago

It doesn't give the finger positions by itself though so you'll have to explain what fingers the students need to use to hit what keys, but there are a few videos online that can do that. spends a bit too much time on just J and F, and its lessons aren't a variable length from what I can tell.
