This section contains information for the user. All the lessons are divided into units and sub-units. Each unit deals with a set of keys. For example, the first unit trains the fingers on how to press the keys at the home row. A couple of new keys is introduced with every unit.
Each unit is further divided into up to five sub-units:
Each unit contains some tips which can be seen by clicking the link at the bottom. The tips should be read and understood nicely before beginning a unit.
One should move to the next lesson only after completing the current lesson satisfactorily. When a lesson is completed satisfactorily, the software suggests you to move to the next lesson. A speed of 200 cpm or more with 0% error is considered satisfactory.
While typing one should look at the screen only. It might help the beginners to say the letters aloud while typing. Fingers should always be placed on the home row as indicated in the first unit. If any key outside the home row has to be typed, one should return the finger to the home row immediately after striking that key.
