for me, i never had training in school for typing. i went into "vo-tech", instead of the "business" classes in high school. so up until i got my first pc, i never knew how to type.' then came along that first pc, and i typed with the typical "2 finger" way.. slowly, i progressed to 3 fingers then 4..!! i had bought a great typing program, named, "Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing", and i learned more from that. it was (for me) really a great program. now i type with at least 4 fingers, sometimes 5, but never more than that.. in fact, i have removed some keys from the keyboard that got in the way of my "speed typing", necessitating several "edits" to anything that i type... i stopped learning form that program, and i had removed it from the pc, maybe someday i will re-install it and start my learning all over again. But ya know what..?? sometimes i type faster, as long as i still LOOK AT the keyboard.....lol..... so what about you, how do you type, how did you learn...do you even care how long it takes to type up anything.>?? thanks in advance to all that respond... now you see, what happens when you type with 5 fingers or less..?? in my poll, the question reads... "I still type with 2 fingers of less..!!!" it should read....."I still type with 2 fingers OR less..!!!"
