    Default How fast can you type?

    http://www.typingtest.com/test/default.asp (requires java)

    Lets see how fast people can type. I guess screenshots could be used a proper proof but I trust anyone.

    I can type well over 200WPM but all the letters are together and no spacing, and they aren't the correct characters, so 200 WPM with 100% errors is 0 WPM.

    But on a serious note, I average around 85 WPM and can sustain that speed for a long time, in that test I got 86 WPM no errors.

    So how fast can people type?

    Cheers,


    KK

    I believe no problem is so large or so difficult that it can't be blamed on someone else.

    Being careful not to make mistakes I can do about 45 wpm with 98% accuracy or something. I couldnt even imagine doing 80wpm. My fingers would fall off.

    Hmm, I want to test this with a dvorak keyboard now...

    53 WPM, 93% accruacy.

    I never had any formal training - but one of my first computers had no permanent storage, so whenever I wanted to play a game, I had to type the BASIC program in each time - 600 plus lines of code on a Saturday afternoon, using a rubber keyboard, and you learn how to type or get frustrated very quickly...
