Improved Speed and Accuracy
Using keyboard covers forces students to learn how to type by touch, not by sight; promoting improved typing speed and accuracy.
Improved Key Recognition
Covering the keyboard teaches students to learn where each key is located on the keyboard, reinforcing memory recognition.
Promotes Good Posture
Keyboard covers force students to keep their hands, wrists, and fingers in their proper place and position on the keyboard promoting better posture and keying technique.
Using keyboard covers, as opposed to a keyboard skin (which sits directly on the keyboard), allows students to experience true touch-typing because their fingers touch the actual keys.
Improved Typing From Copy
Using keyboard covers in conjunction with typing stands forces students to focus on keying from the copy. This consistently improves the student's efficiency and technique when keying from copy.
