Flash Cards Builds Typing Speed and AccuracyDo you want to improve your speed and accuracy?
You've mastered the basic keystrokes, but there is only so much repetition before you go crazy. No matter how hard you try, you just can't type as fast as a professional. Why not? Do you know what's wrong?
First, you need a lot of practice. Hence, Nimble Fingers offers numerous interesting keyboarding exercises so you can build speed and accuracy. The key is to make learning interesting.
But wait, there is more. Nimble Fingers also contains "Flash Cards" which develop motor reflex and response patterns. When you initially learned how to read, you had to spell out the individual letters before you could say the word. In "Flash Cards" you learn how to say the word and type the word as a whole.
Complicated? NO! Suppose you were reading the word "if." Instead of concentrating on the individual letters "i" and "f", read the word "if" and type the whole word "if".
Develop Touch Typing Speed and Accuracy using Flash CardsLook at the two letter list flashing below. Say the word, think the word, and type the word. When you say the word that is flashing, can't you feel how quickly you will be able to "train your fingers" to type the word as soon as you see it?
It will not take you long to master the two letter words.
Remember, say the whole word, and type the word as a whole.
Do not type the individual letters.
Next, look at the three letter list of common words. Say the word, think the word, and type the word.
You will quickly learn to type three letter words.
But first, you have to learn touch typing to achieve
the amazing increases in speed and accuracy.
Then you are ready to tackle four letter words.
Read these common four letter words. Say the word, think the word, and type the word.
Can't you see yourself learning to type at amazing speeds?
The Flash Card feature is important in all
of the Nimble Fingers programs.
You really need to try it and see for yourself. The trial version is free, so what do you have to lose?'
Then, Flash Cards will introduce you to common word phrases. Say the phrase, think the phrase, and type the phrase.
It does not take much of a "leap of faith" to realize that you can be typing these common phrases at amazing speeds.
So, why not try Flash Cards, and see for yourself?
Learn touch typing. Learn how to type without looking at your fingers before you progress to Flash Cards.
Check your fingers. Are your fingers curved? Strike each key with the pad of your finger, not your fingernail.
Move only the needed finger. Train your fingers to stay on their assigned home row key. Pivot with the little or index finger for long reaches. Immediately return to the correct home row key.
Practice. Practice! If something didn't "seem right", repeat the exercise. You are the best judge of your progress... although the Little Professor will offer suggestions.
Mind set. If you decide you really want to improve your skills, you need to devote the time necessary to mastering the task.
Create your own. Two of the Nimble Fingers programs, Word Wacker, and Typing & Data Entry feature a control panel. This panel permits you to customize the program by creating your own Flash Cards word list.
Stress release. Spend a couple of minutes and try some of the finger dexterity and stress release exercises in this www.nimblefinger.com web site. They will help reduce tension and stress.
Smile. nbsp; Remember to smile. Smiling releases tensions. You, and the people around you, will feel better.

In addition to Flash Cards, practice is
needed to build skills by typing various exercises.
With Nimble Fingers You select the drill of interest to you.
How about an exercise on wierd creatures?
Many biologists, aquatic-ecologists, and zoologists do not even know that
the glass shrimp exits. Most so-called shrimp are amphipods known as
scuds. Glass shrimp are true shrimp with prominent stalked eyes, ten
legs, transparent bodies, and measure just about an inch long. They
are abundant in submerged fresh vegetation where they thrive on algae and
other microscopic animals. They can also be found in salt water flats.
Or an exercise on swizzle sticks?
The International Swizzle Stick Collectors Association was founded in
1985 as an excellent way to begin a swizzle stick collection. The
group promotes interest in the hobby, its history, and encourages
communication among hobbyists. They also provide information on
collecting antique swizzle sticks. The swinging swizzlers maintain
a computerized stick locator adjacent to their main library.
Or an exercise on dogs?
There is a test that dogs can take to prove they are exceptionally well-
behaved and are good citizens. Sponsored by the American Kennel Club, the
test is given without regard to pedigree and acquaints the pet and its
owner as to what is expected. Local inoculation certificates and all
licenses must be presented prior to the test, which is offered by a local
group called the K-9 Kapers. The dog is disqualified if it bites joggers.
Or an exercise on animal sounds?
According to language expert Nicole Cee, the sound that an animal
makes frankly depends on who is listening. Humans in Germany describe a
dog's bark as "vow-vow." Italians insist their mutts go "bow-wow."
In China, canines say "wung-wung" and in Arabic nations, pooches just
bark with a guttural "aao-aao." Arabic cats say "neow," not "meow."
Are people amazed about such a high-quality study, or do they even care?
Learning to type requires practice, but we will try to keep it interesting.
