Typing Faster Through Apprehension - K. Anders Ericsson and Robert Pool

This quote a été ajouté par user401321
When you type faster than usual, it forces you to start looking ahead at the words that are coming up so you can figure out where to place your fingers in anticipation. So, if you see that the next four letters will all be typed with fingers on your left hand, you can move the correct finger on your right hand into place for the fifth letter ahead. Tests on the best typists have shown that their speeds are closely related to how far ahead they look at upcoming letters while they type.

I'm unsure this strategy of "placing fingers in anticipation" is how typing works. The homerow-based typing technique typically keeps your fingers fairly well spaced along the entire keyboard. As such, the distance to each key is, for the most part, even. The idea here is that you don't have to place your fingers for anticipation, as they're already fairly close to the next key.

I'm also unsure how that might work. If I were to type "you" with my right hand, and then wait to type out "saw" with my left, the act of preparing to type out the other word would distract me from what I'm already trying to do. Reading ahead makes sense, but I don't know if that usually turns into phyiscal movement.
