Can you type without looking at the keyboard?

I can touch type pretty well but not perfectly. Learned as a kid how to do it but have not practiced it properly for a while. Then again, I typed all this without looking at the keyboard!

I'm pretty accurate when I type without looking at it, but there are some times where I can't do it.

I think I learned in the 5th grade. They had these awful orange silicon covers they put on the keyboards to keep us from looking.
I'm thankful for the class but I wish they provided something less sticky and gross for us to use.

Of course! In my teens when I got really addicted to the internet, my desk was tight against my bed and thus there was no room for me to actually pull out my keyboard to look at it. I learned to type without looking.

I have to look where the key is to start, other than that I'm able to type without looking.

I ran a free typing tutor programme back around 2001 or so. I only did a few of the exercises but since then I don't need to look at the keyboard for typing text - the key was learning the proper rest position for your fingers.

The only time I need to look at the keyboard is to use special characters that don't appear often in normal text. This is partially due to working with a mixture of standard UK keyboards and several laptop variants - the method to access the special characters often varies between laptop models.

I'm pretty sure I can type without looking at the keyboard, considering I typed this out only looking at the screen.

Yes, it was a compulsory requirement at my highschool that you be able to type 70 words a minute without being able to see the keys.
