    "Search and Poke" for me. I grew up on QWERTY and now on QWERTZ - makes for some entertaining e-mails when I go back home to visit.

    Two-hand pecking, or left hand plus mouse in right hand. My touch-typing skills have gone to pot. I have to watch what my fingers are doing.

    My skills are even worse since I got a new compact keyboard. The keyboard is a better fit for the small cart I use for my computer desk and lets me use a bigger mouse pad, but keys are crowded and arranged a bit differently. I can't seem to adjust.

    I'm a pretty fast typer as some of you have seen with my quick posts

    I haven't been timed lately but I can do a fair bit in short order.

    Not sure how to answer, I do use both hand and the appropriate fingers for the appropriate keys but cna't reach 30 wpm and still look at the keyboard when typing -guess that this puts me between the two hand pecking and 30wpm choices.

    60 minutes per word

  10. Once upon a time I could type flawlessly at 60 wpm, but that was only because the paper-tape perforator was u/s and we had to type live on the teletype. It was quite easy to get into the rhythm of the machine. CAPITALS ONLY SO IT WAS GREAT FOR SHOUTING. I'm neither as fast nor as accurate now.

    I didn't learn typing.
    I use both hands and about 3 fingers in each hand.
    Practising music helped me to use more than one finger.
    But I always need to watch the keyboard when typing (professional typers only watch the screen) .

    I do two hand pecking although I'm currently using Mavis Beacon in an attempt to reach 30 wpm.
