Perhaps the most useful high school course I took was Typing and I think I took two semesters of it. At the end I was in the 90-100 wpm area usually, sometimes faster, and that was on a manual Underwood office typewriter. Of course time and arthritis onset have taken their toll on that speed and these days, using a computer keyboard I am probably around 50 wpm, but who really cares? But I am still a competent touch typist using all fingers and don't look at the keyboard.
More and more I am using voice operation to make text messages since the technology is pretty good. I do think we are getting closer to keyboards being a thing of the past for computers and really in most applications.
