Typing speed is the reason..

I get surprised how new generation types with super fast speed using thumb tips of both the hands. They may be failed in real typing test on desktop or laptop keyboard. But I can't type using both hands. I may type hardly10 words per minute. This is the reason I am less active Mylotter. Have you ever counted your typing words per minute speed on mobile phone?

that is the first machine i've touched in typing during college and my professor hides the letters so we learn by putting an electric tape on each letter. i've actually failed twice on the subject because i dont show interest but i passed on the next. the professors are strict so i failed.

@Strawberry18 your story is so interesting. I remembered too when I was in std 10 I learned typing using typewriter machine. I never appeared any exam for typing.

No. I type real slow when using my phone though I'm a fast typist when using a PC or a laptop, even with one hand.

I don't know what my typing speed on a phone pad would be, but on a PC keyboard on a bad day it's about 70wpm and on a good day about 90wpm. However, I was taught to type back in the 1970s in the traditional way and with practice, having been taught that way, you can get up quite a speed touch-typing, without having to look at the keyboard and using all of your fingers/thumbs.

By practice we can also obtain speed. But don't worry old is always gold. Slow speed keeps us away from mobile and get some time for us.

The new generation is good with their hands.I think with a little practice on anything they can make wonders which we failed to do in their age.

You rightly said, they do really wonder in terms of handing electronic gadgets.

I learnt to type on a typewriter with ten fingers. I still use ten fingers but I'm slow now and tend to make typos.

i guess it's to be expected if they've been familiar with cellphones since they were in grade school or preschool. i've even seen a young lady using two hands on a calculator. maybe you can mylot on a desktop or laptop so you're more comfortable.

This is not question of familiarity with cellphone. I have been using mobile for two decades still I am not comfortable with mobile pad. I can type with desktop keyboard without watching it.
