Easy ways to improve your typing speed
To improve your typing speed and accuracy, focus on using all ten fingers and emphasise on accuracy over speed at first. It is ideal to type slowly but correctly than to rush and make mistakes. As you become more comfortable with touch typing, your speed will naturally increase. Keyboard shortcuts can save a lot of time, especially for frequent typists, so learn the ones you’ll use the most. Regular practice is essential for improving your typing skills. Even 15 minutes a day makes a difference over time.
