Computer Keyboarding

 

In today’s society where computers are commonplace in the home and used in nearly every job, strong keyboarding skills are valuable in one’s residence and essential in the workforce. For someone who is visually impaired or blind, being able to use a computer to send emails, read their mail, keep personal records (such as a checkbook register), and write letters provides them with a sense of independence and competency. Computer keyboarding training is essential in order to be able to complete these tasks. In this training the individual will learn how to locate all the keys on the computer accurately without sight. In addition they will learn how to use the proper keyboarding technique for typing documents. Emphasis in this training is on accuracy and not on speed. The purpose is to have the client be able to accurately locate the keys on the computer keyboard.
