It’s typing using all of your fingers WITHOUT looking. It means you can type at the speed of thought with your fingers working unconsciously. The benefits are huge!
It stands to reason that the faster you can type, the more time you will save.
Just think of all those emails most people send every day. Add up the time you can save typing up each email, and over the weeks and months that could add up to a lot of saved time.

Everyone is looking for ways to be more productive both in the workplace and at home, and typing faster is a simple way to get more done.
If you learn to double the speed you type, you can essentially get twice as much done in the same space of time. It’s a no brainer really.

If a lot of your time sitting at your desk is spent typing, you might be able to improve your posture and your health by increasing your typing speed. This will mean less time spent typing at your desk, and more time spent standing up and stretching.

When you learn to touch type you don’t need to look down at the keyboard. You can look directly at the screen and your fingers will type without you even thinking about the movements.
This means improved focus. Every time you look down and try to find a key, you are losing concentration. Touch typing will lead to a better flow and your thoughts won’t be interrupted as much.
Learning to touch type is not just about learning how to type faster. It’s also about learning how to type with greater accuracy.
That means you will spend less time checking for mistakes in your writing and correcting them, saving you yet more time and making less work for you.
