Some tips to help you, and your typing life!

  1. When placing your fingers in home room position, remember to have your wrist slightly raised and not resting on the table. This helps with correct keystroking.
  2. Sit straight and remember to keep your back straight.
  3. Keep your elbows bent at the right angle.
  4. Face the screen with your head slightly tilted forward.
  5. Keep at least 45 - 70 cm of distance between your eyes and the screen.
