The f and j keys on a keyboard are usually indicated by raised lines on their tops, which allow you to place the fingers of both hands on them without looking, according to the rules of typing.

This is to support touch typing so that the typist can quickly find the keys without looking at the keyboard. This is known as bumping the raised line.


The raised line was first introduced in the 1880s by typewriter manufacturers, who felt that hitting the keys would help typists orient their fingers more accurately.


The raised line on the f and j keys has become ubiquitous and is found on all modern keyboards.

The raised line helps typists quickly find the right keys when touch typing, allowing them to type quickly and accurately without constantly looking down at the keyboard.

To practice this rule, start by placing your hands on the base of the keyboard, with your wrists slightly elevated and your fingers curled over the home row keys (ASDF and JKL;).
