Hi, this is Linda Lewis on behalf of Expert Check out my website at If you already know how to type would keytime method help? Many people have said I don’t need to improve my keyboard skills but if somebody is typing 40 to 50 words a minutes and their sitting at the keyboard all day and they seem to getting tired at the end of the day, that we have several things that can help with ergonomics stretches. We actually teach ergonomics fingering which is an improvement. The way typing is conventionally been taught for over a 100 years is to have your hands going up to the left and down to the right. This puts a strain on the left wrist and that is where they have made the ergonomics keyboards where your hands are split. With out method we actually have your hands placed on the keys and you’re typing in an ergonomics direction where your hands both go to the center and then down to the outside. This puts the strain not on your left wrist but in a natural motion of how you actually move your fingers.
