One Hand Typing and Keyboarding for the Blind and Vision Challenged
Touch typing is something about which every person with a sight challenge already knows a great deal. Learning to be adept at keyboarding actually is easier in some ways these people as they are more skilled at accomplishing tactical tasks without looking.
If you have a sight, and hand challenge, I do not suggest an alternative keyboard. I do suggest you use the normal keyboard you will find at every work place and home you go to. This is called the QWERTY keyboard.
As you learn to be a speed typist, you need to find a way to keep returning to HOME BASE - this is main key to becoming a speedy typist. For the one handed typist HOME BASE is FGHJ. I suggest you put someone on F and J so you can easily locate them. Try a glob of clear glue! Put it on, then use your finger to make it a bit bumpy and rough. Allow it to dry for about two days.
I suggest you purchase our typing manual in Microsoft Word, as you will be able to use a READER for the exercises. If you have some sight, Word allow you to enchance the view of the pages, enlarging them as needed.
The hands of those I meet are dumbly eloquent to me. ... there are those whose hands have sunbeams in them, so that their grasp warms my heart.
