How to type words like "Number"

By alignsd - updated: 2 days, 22 hours ago - 7 messages

I'm looking for advice on how to type words such as "Number" where you jump up and down the column with the same finger ie N U M

Are you supposed to just jump up and down with the same finger in this case. It seems to take forever for me to do. Or should I be throwing in another finger to help with that transition?

I suggest changing to a keyboard layout other than QWERTY, such as Dvorak or Colemak. These are optimized to reduce the distance that your fingers have to move while typing, and increase comfort.

You can type all very fast with one finger. Just one simple trick: use different part of the finger, see? So for N, you would use the middle of the finger. Next for U, the top (well shifting your finger slight right) then middle again. Easy! With practice of course

Are you telling us to type with our knuckles?

Depends on how long your finger goes

Steps to type Number:
1. Index finger on N
2. Middle finger to U
3. Index finger to M
4. Index finger to B
5. Type ER in one step with Middle and Index on left hand

Hope this helps!

See, you accidentally hit the "caps lock" key. This is bad because in the normal typing tests, that would count as 170 mistakes, since you typed each character as the wrong character. Next time, look at the screen so that you actually know what you're typing. This makes it less likely for you to send mistakes, since now you know exactly what you're typing before you click the "save" button on the message. And remember, even if you are 13 years old, it takes loads of practice for anyone to improve. Even those at above 100 WPM sometimes gets 92% accuracy, so even they are working on improving.
