    Learn Type: Teach Yourself Typing in a Few Short Hours

    Touch-typing is theart of typing on a computer keyboard without looking at the keys. I would liketo help you teach yourself touch-typing using an innovative method. The method is very fast and literallyrequires only a few hours of exercise. You do not need an actual keyboard – you can learn and practicetouch-typing using just paper. After going through the seven lessons (thistakes about half an hour to one hour), you will be able to touch-type with thespeed of about 60 KPM (keystrokes per minute). Typing speed is sometimes measured in WPM (words per minute) but this isambiguous, so for the rest of this manual, I will talk about keystrokes perminute, that is, the number of all keystrokes including letters, digits, spaces, and punctuation.
