Irenaeus G. Saintonge:        97wpm, 2 errors
Kaesekopf:                           92wpm, all correct
totiusque:                             88wpm, 1 error
Archer:                                 83wpm, 1 error
Pæniteo:                              83wpm, [no info]

It will be interesting to see how fast Pæniteo is when he's healthy.

Without taking the tests again, please add in that score list the number of errors we had.
"Nothing is more miserable than those people who never failed to attack their own salvation. When there was need to observe the Law, they trampled it under foot. Now that the Law has ceased to bind, they obstinately strive to observe it. What could be more pitiable that those who provoke God not only by transgressing the Law but also by keeping it? But at any rate the Jews say that they, too, adore God. God forbid that I say that. No Jew adores God! Who say so? The Son of God say so. For he said: "If you were to know my Father, you would also know me. But you neither know me nor do you know my Father". Could I produce a witness more trustworthy than the Son of God?"  St. John Chrysostom  Sunday Homily

Took it again, and got this:

Your score: 493 CPM (that is 99 WPM)

Your score beats or equals 98.18% of all!

 

In reality, you typed 555 CPM, but you made 10 mistakes (out of 103 words), which were not counted in the corrected CPM score.

Your mistakes were:

•Instead of "cover", you typed "vover".
•Instead of "first", you typed "cirs".
•Instead of "complete", you typed "compete".
•Instead of "usual", you typed "ususal".
•Instead of "again", you typed "gagin".
•Instead of "blue", you typed "blu".
•Instead of "left", you typed "lfeft".
•Instead of "picture", you typed "poicture".
•Instead of "laugh", you typed "laught".
•Instead of "cross", you typed "cors".
I advise you to take a 2 minute break now.


I made A LOT of mistakes.

Uh huh.  She's fast.

Don't think I can beat Eliza, but my hands felt like they were flying when I did this.  My worst fault is that when I make a mistake, I always backspace through it and edit rather than just accept the mistake and move on.  That probably shaved 10 WPM off my score.

That puts you in 4th!  ;)

Maybe try it again tomorrow, and don't worry so much about correcting errors. So you get a higher score.

If only it were that easy.  I tried it again a few more times and told myself not to backspace, but I couldn't do it.  I'm programmed to auto-correct myself, and I can't stop!!!!

Your score: 393 CPM (that is 79 WPM)

Your score beats or equals 92.72% of all!
 


Congratulations! You typed all 73 words correctly!

I advise you to take a 2 minute break now


I had trouble with the way the lines moved up and the cursor.

Most jobs requiring typing require about 50 CWPM.  You need a reasonable level of speed for work no hunt and peck - but accuracy is very important too for work.

The current keyboard set up was designed to slow typist down because of the old type writers.
