Touch-Typing Speed Test
« on: February 10, 2013, 02:27:00 AM »
I've recently begun touch typing and I'm liking it. Go here and take the test: http://typing-speed-test.aoeu.eu/

I'm curious how well my best score (thus far) holds up against others here. Please post a snapshot.

"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

"The two goals of the Jews: The universal domination of the world and the destruction of Catholicism, out of hatred for Christ" --Mgr. Jouin

So far, so good. I think Paeniteo is a good typist. I'm interested in seeing his score.

You should know that I use that website a lot, so perhaps familiarity gives me an edge.

I hope ggreg looks at this and sees that I'm already a decent touch typist after only a short time. It shows initiative on my part. Always looking to improve myself and make myself valuable to potential employers.

I also have Raynaud's disease and typing is difficult at the moment (cold in the house).

However, I just did a quick go, and I got:

Raw CPM: 417, Corrected CPM 417, WPM 83

That is my general "distracted/compromised" typing speed.

When I have some more blood in my fingers, I'll give it another go.

I never used it before and I do not use such applications.

Typing speed of touch typists is mainly based on the individual nervous system. Most touch typists do not type as fast as one would think.

I do not understand this reference, but learning to touch type is a good thing, as that is how one is supposed to type.

I learned to touch type in Dvorak too...but I do not use it enough to get much speed. But it is fast enough to call touch typing.

Impressive! Look forward to seeing your non-distracted score. And post a snapshot next time.

Uh oh. Now I look like a freak. :P


Your score: 463 CPM (that is 93 WPM)

Your score beats or equals 97.07% of all!
 


In reality, you typed 481 CPM, but you made 3 mistakes (out of 87 words), which were not counted in the corrected CPM score.

Your mistakes were:

Instead of "measure", you typed "meaure".
Instead of "most", you typed "monst".
Instead of "plain", you typed "plan".

Wow! Tell me how you learned to type.

Sometimes, yes, although, individual appearance will vary according.

When I typed that, I had restricted bloodflow and it would have looked more like the first image (upper left). But not all fingers were like that.

Self-taught, and my 'technique' is atrocious. :P I will grab a screenshot for you; one second.

It's like frostbite without frostbite. The blues ones.

When did you start touch typing, and do you notice your typing skills improving with age?

This guy is very good: http://seanwrona.com/typing.php

He has top scores on this site: http://play.typeracer.com/

And he says that he will use whichever finger is closest to the key he wants, even if it's not the finger that is supposed to be used.
