Is touch-typing no quicker than doing it with two fingers? | Money | The Guardian

Is touch-typing no quicker than doing it with two fingers? | Money | The Guardian:
"Is touch-typing no quicker than doing it with two fingers?
New research surprisingly suggests that untrained typists are often faster"
'via Blog this'
This makes me feel not so bad.



Nevertheless, I would like to learn how to touch type, because at times I have suffered from "computeritis" - typing and mousing related pain in hand/wrist shoulders.  One supposes that touch typing might distribute the load. (Although even that is questionable: some studies suggest that classic touch typing may worsen computeritis.)



(At the moment I have kept the computeritis at bay for a few years using a good keyboard (the Matias Mini Quiet Pro, with mechanical switches) with a good ergonomic setup (trackball, keyboard tray, etc.). I suspect that using non PC touchscreen devices may also have reduced the stress, although introducing different stressors.)
