I learned to type on a manual typewriter with blank keycaps, but I
also did a lot of typing on an ASR-33.  I could read the holes in the
tape visually pretty well.

On the other hand, I have to note that an ASR-33 would have been used
for TWX, not Telex.  A Telex would use an ASR-32 or more likely an
older and sturdier model 28.
