Virtual keyboards & Touch-typing

Wendy . Blog Shakespeare slept here! Publicado 03 Febrero 2009

This mini-computer looks like a pen.
When opened up, it creates its own stand, and produces a virtual keyboard

Here’s another instrument which produces a virtual keyboard.
You can use these new gadgets on any flat surface.

All 3 of these gadgets are used without a traditional keyboard.

They’re useful, but YOU still need to type in the information.
Maybe you should work on your typing skills. There are on-line courses
to learn to “Touch-Type”. Try one this summer.

I remember learning to type and teaching my kids to type.
We started with “ fff jjj fff jjj” and moved on to “fa fa fa ja ja ja”
“je je je jo jo jo” “ca ca ca no no no” etc. Before we knew it we could type all kinds of combinations without looking at our fingers. And it was even fun.
Once you’ve trained your fingers, see if you can type the following sentence without looking at your keyboard. It includes all the letters of the alphabet:

“The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.”

Technology is fabulous. I’ve gone from a manual typewriter to an electric typewriter to a desk-top computer to a lap-top and I’ve tried a virtual keyboard. It’s fun. It’s futuristic. I love new gadgets. And I can type fast.

What about YOU? Do you know how to touch-type? TEACH YOURSELF NOW !

Useful Vocabulary:

gadget- an instrument, appliance, gizmo, device
In Spanish: artilugio, chisme
Maybe you remember the cartoon:
"Inspector Gadget"who had lots of gadgets.

Laptop- a portable computer that you can use on any surface, including
on your lap.
Lap- the top of your upper legs when you are sitting down.
In Spanish: regazo
A desk top computer is always on top of your desk.

You can use a laptop anywhere, but it was designed to use on your lap.

Touch-type
To write on a typewriter or a keyboard without looking at your fingers.
In Spanish: escribir a máquina sin mirar, mecanografiar al tacto
