What are the benefits of touch typing skills?
Higher typing speed
This is the most obvious benefit of learning to touch type. Keyboard training will drastically improve your typing speed in a short period of time. Generally, the time taken by a touch typist to type a given number of characters is without doubt less than the time taken by a person who uses the hunt and peck method, thus can save dozens of valuable working hours. This skill does not only make you more attractive to employers, but it will help you become more efficient.
The typist gets used to looking at the output on the screen, not the keyboard. This is very helpful when creating a document such as an essay, letter, a book or a presentation. Basically, not having to look at the keyboard to find the keys can help you focus on the output, thus increase in quality.
Better for your health
Touch typing is less demanding on your brain because the brain does not need to cope with two issues of locating the keys and focusing on the output at the same time. It keeps you from constantly having to bend your head over the keyboard to find your next keystrokes, meaning the brain is then single-mindedly focused on the output. Also, touch typing is less tiring because its natural and flowing movements distribute the total load over all fingers, which results in less stress.
Reduces wear and tear
The wear and tear on the few fingers that are constantly used is reduced dramatically. The work is spread over by many more fingers and therefore helps reduce the risk of Cumulative Trauma Disorder.
You are not going to notice grammar or spelling mistakes when typing if you spend your time staring at your keyboard. With touchtyping, you can edit your work as you go. Looking at the screen will enable you to detect errors as they appear and fix them immediately.
Better job opportunities
Employers are looking at candidates with excellent typing skills as the first qualification for the job, not as an optional skill. So touch typing will make an impression of being the professional, just on the first glimpse, thus opens many job opportunities to you.
