Chapter 19. The number row > Typing numbers

Typing numbers

The number keys are a longer stretch from home row, but in time, you’ll be able to type the numbers you need with accuracy and speed. Even many experienced typists are not as accurate with the number keys as they are with the alphabet keys, so feel free to glance down at your keyboard as you type numbers. It’s not as important or realistic to touch-type the number keys or assign specific fingers to each key, because they are not used extensively and the reach involved can be difficult for many people.

Even so, try to concentrate on keeping your fingers on the home keys while you type numbers. If you take them off the home keys, you will lose your orientation to the keyboard, which can cost you speed and accuracy while you type words and numbers intermittently.
