Can you type?


I can't figure out how to make this a poll or delete it. If someone will help me I'd appericate it - thanks!

I can only hunt and peck. Never learned to type, never needed to. I actually enjoy writing things by hand.

Yeah. but I took general typing because I couldn't stand the competitiveness of speed typing.

I can type. I don't remember for sure but I think it was a class that I had to take in high school, that was over 15 years ago though.

I can't believe how fast some people can finger peck though, almost as fast as I can type!

I remember flunking typing in high school. Typeing on the IBM typewriter. Cutting edge back then. Now I type every day for a living.

Ive been typing since 7th grade. I took typing classes in middle school, high school and college. I actually help my husband all the time when it comes to typing things he needs for work, home, etc.

I can type pretty well, even better when I'm not looking at the screen or the keyboard. I tend to make a few mistakes when I'm concentrating too much on the keyboard.

I remember having to learn to center text on the electric by counting the number of characters and dividing by two and... something to do with the margin. And ribbons made with correction tape were a really big deal.

I think the last time I got timed last year I hit about 60 wpm, but really my accuracy has taken a bit of a hit the last few weeks since I had to go on the meds. C'est la vie.

I never took typing decades ago when I was young. seizures and meds took its toll on my typing ability later on when I started working in an office. Slow! My eyes and hands do the two step, so makes it more difficult. I tried to get an office job after i became unemployed in 09. fifteen WPM does not a typist make!!

I taught myself when I was about 15 on an old underwood metal manual typewriter. Then I took a couple classes of it. I still have a typewriter, and now I have to search for the film ribbons. The correction part of the typewriter no longer works. Funny, with all my memory problems, typing isn't a thing I've forgotten!

I can but I usually use the number keys on the side - I never really got comfortable using the ones on the top row. I end up cheating and looking when I try.

It's actually funny but because I can type I can't just type with one finger. I have trouble finding the keys.
