finger on the D-key and left ring finger and left little
finger on the adjacent keys. Use one of your thumbs to
press the space bar.
After this, put your right index finger on the J-key,
middle finger on the K-key and so on. Keep your wrists
straight and palms bent in a relaxed way. Your hands are
now in the beginning position.
Press Enter with little finger.
Hit the keys gently with your finger tips. Always keep
your fingers slightly touching the 'home' keys.
After pressing a key, return the finger to its home key
before using other fingers.
Do not look at the keyboard while typing. Instead try

finger with your mind.
If you use the Dvorak keyboard, or keyboard of another
language, the locations of home keys may be different.
