The computer keyboard is perhaps the most important man/machine interface ever invented and yet the teaching of keyboard skills is not on the curriculum in many schools; that leaves industry and commerce without people trained in keyboard skills. This also means vast numbers of personnel who use computers at work are inefficiently typing by hunting and pecking. This suits the typing style of some people but it's a fact that if someone undergoes typing training they generally improve their speed and accuracy and can type in a more relaxed way. In short, as they gain a better skill their life gets better. It's the same for users of social media, if you can type more easily, faster and more accurately you can get your messages out much quicker.
If you use the Recommendations and Guidance that the BSBL typing and language products provide you with in the personalised e-mail reports that we send to our users, you can work to eliminate your weak points more quickly - the faster you can learn, the faster you can earn!
Apart from the curiosity value of the massive data that we're collecting we are continually looking for a 'magic bullet'; a better way to teach typing skills to people. We firmly believe from the evidence that we've seen in real life that computer keyboard users who can use all of their fingers to type are much happier, as well as generally being more productive, using a keyboard. This applies both for their work and for their personal computer use on social media, e-mailing friends, blogging or anything else involving communicating through the computer keyboard.
Our mission is to continually record and analyse every keystroke made by our users of all ages and keyboard skill levels from all over the world.
