She is typing.

Would you go for "daktylografo" or "pliktrologo"?

Thanks!

agree  Gregoris Kondylis: θα χρησιμοποιούσα απλώς το γράφω, διότι τι άλλο μπορείς να κάνεις γράφοντας στη γραφομηχανή; Όσο για το πληκτρολογώ αποτελεί μεθύστερο παράγωγο του πληκτρολογίου και ανήκει στο λεξικό των κομπιουτεράδων που δεν έχει καμία αξία πέρα από την χρηστική.
