  • Yes with the old fashioned type writers. Graduated high school in 1987. But worked in clerical field for 10 years and that's what really made me type. I'm on computer every day too. I can type while talking to someone and it's amazing how the fingers know where to go while I'm concentrating talking.

  • Yes, I did. When we were in high school, there were two courses available in typing--one was for beginners and the other was more advanced.

  • Yes I took it in High School also. But I was also taught typing in 5th grade my teacher taught us to type without looking at our hands and to this day I do not have to look at my hands and I know when I make a mistake without looking.

  • Yes, I took a keyboarding class my senior year because I needed something else for the year. I also took a couple of years of business and computer tech so we did typing there too.

  • Keyboarding and computers were both mandatory at my HS. I could type so fast they wanted me to go to a typing competition. I had never heard of such a thing and wasn't about to go. LOL

  • I took one my freshman year in HS, a business class my sophomore year and my senior year I was dual enrolled for medical assisting and we learned to do transcribing. My typing has gotten so much better over the years though.
