LEARNING THE KEYBOARD The first step in typewriting is learning the keyboard. Figure 2-2 shows a typical typewriter keyboard. For illustration purposes, it has been divided into two sections. The left-hand section represents the keys controlled by your left hand, and the right-hand section represents the keys controlled by your right hand. Home Keys The shaded keys (fig. 2-2) are called the HOME keys. Your fingers stay on these keys when they are not depressing a key. After you depress any key other than the home key, the respective finger returns to its home key. The home keys for the left-hand section are A, S, D, and F; and the home keys for the right-hand section are the J, K, L, and ;.
