/ SIT CORRECTLY
straight with your back against the chair.
Keep feet flat on the floor, if possible.
Keep elbows relaxed at sides.
Keep wrists low.
Don't let your wrists rest on the keyboard frame.
Keep fingers curved a little.
The fingers and the keys are color coded to show which finger
handles which key.
• The fingers always rest on the HOME keys, these are
the keys shown at the tip of each finger. The thumbs are used
for the space bar.
• Each finger, with the exception of the index finger,
handles three alphabetical keys: its HOME key,
the key above it and the key below it. For instance,
the left ring finger handles its home key S, the key W
(above the home key) and the key X (below the home key). Therefore
the finger always moves in between three keys, the home key,
one key up from the home key and one key down.
• The index finger handles its home key, the key above
it and the key below V. In addition, the index
finger handles the keys bordering the wall" of the box.
For instance, the left index handles its home key
(F), the key above it (R), the key below it (V) and the keys
vbordering the ridges, T G and B.
