Thread: Faster typing?

Back to the Forum

I'm using one finger on my right hand to type the letters and my left hand finger to type the space bar but I'm having trouble keeping up with the code.
What is the best method to type?

Best way to type is to learn it with using all your fingers, hopefully 10, when you didn't play with fireworks. And start with Dvorak keyboard lay out. It is possible to install that on your PC keyboard.

Better is not to type but jot down with a pencil or pen what you copied on a sheet of paper.

One out of 10 or 20 exercises type it over in your computer when you like a grade to register your progress.

Morse AND requiring a typewriter in order to copy it is contra productive.

I used a program called "Mavis Beacon" to learn how to use a keyboard it only cost a few pounds and is very good. Still when I am trying to contest on cw I type the calls in with my left hand into the log and use my right hand to send with the paddle, 73 Rich G4FAD..
