I typed about 75wpm - don't type much now so guess around 55wpm.

Never liked typing tests and somehow my fingers don't like them either. Happy that I don't have to worry about them anymore.

I worked with someone who typed around 110wpm no errors with long fingernails. Never did figure out how she was able to accomplish this feat. smile

82wpm with 1 error. Pretty good since I haven't done any fast typing on a regular basis since college. Now if I could only get my piano playing up to that speed! laugh

I got 56/17, smile . I use to be able to touch the 80/5 mark. Where did my typing skills go?

I got 68 wpm with 8 errors. That was on the 2nd test, because the first time I tried it I didn't realize it wouldn't let you go on until you corrected an error.

Fun test!

85 words per minute with 2 errors! But admittedly, I took the test twice. shocked The first time around I got 36/22 or something. The lack of a backspace really threw me off the first time around - I usually know that I've typed an error before I see it on the screen, so I reflexively go for the backspace, which in this case only slows things down further.

Well I am a lousy pianist, but I managed 50 wpm with no errors. Remember, back in the "old days" you needed to do 60 or 70 wpm with no errors to get a secretarial job.

It is a fun test, but fairly unrelated to piano playing

My first time through I ended up 37/6. Then I realized that they don't allow backspacing and they screw up the format by only allowing one space between sentences. (There are supposed to be two.)

Anyhow, my retest was 96/1. laugh

And on a mechanical typewriter that you really have to pound on the keys.

The two spaces between sentences dates to the dark ages, Kreisler, when you and I were typing on mechanical typewriters. Nowadays, with wordprocessers that automatically wrap around, most style manuals only want you to put one space between sentences. You can't teach this old dog new tricks, so I still put two. wink

Just as a point of reference, my sister was a professional technical typist back in the 70's and 80's. She clocked 135 wpm on the standard typing test! She can barely use her wrists these days.

I am a two-fingered, hunt & peck typist, myself.

My typing speed has increased to about 70wpm now. The score I have achieved is the result of daily practice.
