Доп. информация (from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia):
Touch typing (also called touch type or touch method) is typing without using the sense of sight to find the keys. Specifically, a touch typist will know their location on the keyboard through muscle memory. Touch typing typically involves placing the eight fingers in a horizontal row along the middle of the keyboard (the home row) and having them reach for other keys. A person who spends most of their day touch typing is usually a copy typist or an audio typist.
Frank Edward McGurrin, a court stenographer from Salt Lake City who taught typing classes, reportedly invented touch typing in 1888.
On a standard keyboard for English speakers the home row keys are: "ASDF" for the left hand and "JKL;" for the right hand. The keyboard is called a QWERTY keyboard because these are the first six letters on the keyboard. Most modern computer keyboards have a raised dot or bar on the home keys for the index fingers to help touch typists maintain and rediscover the correct position on the keyboard quickly with no need to look at the keys.
