Home row confirmation

Because returning your fingers to the home row is such an important
concept in touch typing, KeyWords contains an option you can set
that requests students press the home row keys (
sequence during lessons. When this option is turned on, the
following screen appears at the beginning of each accuracy and
speed builder and test:
Place your fingers on the Home Row now.
Type each Home Row key one at a time
from left to right.
Students must type the correct keys in order—
they can exit the screen and go on to the lesson. If they type the
keys incorrectly, KeyWords backspaces to where they made the error
and won't let them continue until they press the correct letter in the
correct order.
This option is off by default. When turned on, KeyWords requests
home row confirmation at the start of every accuracy and speed
builder and accuracy and speed test.
To turn home row confirmation on:
1. Start KeyWords and select Teacher options, then type the master
password.
2. Use the arrow keys to scroll down the list of options and select
Turn Home Row Confirmation ON, then press
3. Confirm that you want to turn this option on.
