Another thing I’ve challenged myself to this year is to improve the accuracy of my typing. I’m a touch typist, something I learned in high school, and I can type about 60 words a minute. My accuracy is terrible and I expend a lot of effort backspacing and correcting errors. I can’t go on if I know an error is there. So the first thing I need to improve about my typing is my accuracy.
I did a few typing tests and some exercises. My speed is just over 60 wpm (not slower unless I’m trying to type numbers and special symbols), and a bit closer to 70 wpm if I’m typing plain text.
I think I’ll do some self-study on this for a while instead of using online tools and practice stroking the keys I’m most likely to confuse or miss until I can hit them every time without thinking about it.
