I think this test is a more accurate assessment. Good find. Mine was pretty easy, though. I was typing something that I basically had memorized.

Your speed was: 98wpm.

You made 4 mistakes, your mistakes are shown in bold text:

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; then took the other, as just as fair, and having perhaps the better claim, because it was grassy and wated wear; though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay in leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day ! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I shoudl ever come back.

The new test is good, but maybe you should start a new thread and call it Touch-Typing Speed Test II or something. All the scores thus far have been the result of people taking the same test.

I'm out of practice, but last time I checked myself I was at 66 wpm.   I've dropped a tad.  No screen shot, but here's my result:

Quote
Your score: 308 CPM (that is 62 WPM)

Your score beats or equals 83.35% of all!
 

In reality, you typed 339 CPM, but you made 5 mistakes (out of 61 words), which were not counted in the corrected scores.

Your mistakes were:

    Instead of "dry", you typed "drt".
    Instead of "numeral", you typed "numberal".
    Instead of "family", you typed "famikly".
    Instead of "plane", you typed "pkane".
    Instead of "fine", you typed "find".

I advise you to take a 2 minute break now.
The royal feast was done; the King
Sought some new sport to banish care,
And to his jester cried: "Sir Fool,
Kneel now, and make for us a prayer!"

The jester doffed his cap and bells,
And stood the mocking court before;
They could not see the bitter smile
Behind the painted grin he wore.

He bowed his head, and bent his knee
Upon the Monarch's silken stool;
His pleading voice arose: "O Lord,
Be merciful to me, a fool!"

Not bad for my first time trying, I used to be a 10-key data entry operator (just the number pad to the right of the keyboard) and could do 65,000 keystrokes per hour!  :)

275 CPM    55 WPM     74.64% (score equals or beats)  2 mistakes

Thanks for posting this challenge!
