Eh...I have no idea how I average, but it works for me. :)

My score:

<table><tbody><tr><td class="name">WPM</td><td class="value"> 48</td></tr> <tr><td class="name">Keystrokes</td><td class="value"> 258</td></tr> <tr><td class="name">correct words</td><td class="value"> 50</td></tr> <tr><td class="name">wrong words</td><td class="value"> 2</td></tr></tbody></table>

I refuse to do this. It will depress me. When I worked, I typed all day. I used to type 140-145 per minute. Now, I have no clue.

That said, Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing was how I managed to get my speed over 100 wpm in a short time.

I beat all of you... I do 26 wpm. Which is pretty depressing.

WPM 56
Keystrokes 287
correct words 58
wrong words 1

Nowhere near as fast as tipoo the typist.

I type faster when I don't have to look at the screen... Although I don't post anything that fast, because thinking of what to write is different from actually writing it.

I think I would have been faster if they had been actual, sense-making,
sentences instead of a long string of random words. But maybe not.

Sentences are generally easier, but this is pretty accurate. I generally type between 60-90 WPM.


<table style="width: 150px; height: 127px;"><tbody><tr><td class="name">WPM</td><td class="value"> 90</td></tr><tr><td class="name">Keystrokes</td><td class="value"> 478</td></tr><tr><td class="name">correct words</td><td class="value"> 87</td></tr><tr><td class="name">wrong words</td><td class="value"> 3</td></tr><tr><td colspan="2" id="textresult">
</td></tr></tbody></table>

I would probably get a faster typing score if I had actually learned to type the correct way instead of just using 4 fingers. :p

You'd be surprised at how fast you can get with only 4 fingers. There was a columnist at the Washington Post who used to say that he could type wicked fast with only 2 fingers. . . if I remember right, he could give tipoo a run for his money!

I took it twice. I definitely am a lot smoother when the words flow together in a sentence! typing a bunch of random words is harder for me.

<table><tbody><tr><td class="name">WPM</td><td class="value"> 73</td></tr> <tr><td class="name">Keystrokes</td><td class="value"> 411</td></tr> <tr><td class="name">correct words</td><td class="value"> 76</td></tr> <tr><td class="name">wrong words</td><td class="value"> 7</td></tr></tbody></table>

Darn! Can't use that as my excuse then. :p

I did it a couple times and average around 65-70 wpm, but I can get up to around 90 if I really try. I like typeracer.com better because you race in a little VW Beetle that goes across the screen as you make progress :D and it gives you actual things to type - passages from books, song lyrics, movie quotes, rather than just random words.
