A typing tutor – online learning

The fingers gradually acquire muscle memory by repeatedly typing various letter combinations, words and sentences in exercises of the typing trainer.

Over time fingers “remember” the location of the keys on the keyboard and subsequently pressing the keys does not require human control - fast typing takes place at a subconscious level.
