I've always put down I type 30 words per minute, but after trying testing type, the first one was on the one minute "test instructions" which I got 93 WPM with 4 errors.
Second test was on "tigers in the wild" and I got 94 WPM with 1 error.

What are your results?

61 WPM, 2 errors = 60 adjusted.   And that's probably down from the days of hanging out in AOL chatrooms.

Tigers in the Wild: 102 wpm, 2 mistakes, 100 wpm adjusted

Typing Test Instructions: 107 wpm , 0 mistakes

That's the fastest I've ever scored on one of these tests.  I LOVE MY NEW MECHANICAL SWITCH KEYBOARD!!!

Aye. I learned how to type from online games, chat rooms (remember those?), and just PC Games in general where in many games each key did something different (think Flight Sims and RPGs).

83 WPM with 2 errors.

Yeah my typing speed comes mostly from playing MUDs way back when. Also, I've worked in survey research for many years. Entering data myself meant I didn't have to design a program for and then instruct the morons we had in data entry who would suck up all the project dollars with their slow asses.

Plus I cheated with speed hax.

Oh and the split keyboard improves my speed by like 5-10 wpm.

Have you tried a mechanical switch keyboard?  I went from using the exact same ergonomic keyboard you use to a standard layout one with Cherry MX Brown switches and I haven't looked back.  Despite losing the nice split layout, typing is faster, nicer feeling, and less fatiguing.

Unfortunately there don't seem to be many options for mechanical switch keyboards with an ergonomic split layout, but the typing speed on something like that would probably rip a hole in the space-time continuum.

The last time I took a test like this:



I've been known to type anywhere from 135 to 155 wpm depending on what I'm typing and if I'm transcribing something from one location to another or merely typing from thoughts or memory.  But this most recent test seems to put me right around 105 to 110 wpm, so either I've gotten slower, or it's things like quotations and numerous capitalizations that slow me down a bit.

$10 Logitech keyboard with The Wizard of Oz test. I could boost the score ten or fifteen AWPM but their applet is acting squirrely in Firefox for me right now and shifting text around as it scrolls.

And also, I don't wanna. :b

I'd kill for a mechanical switch ergo keyboard. I've actually sent Razer a letter telling them I'd pay $200 for one. That was before they made the ridiculous $250 SWTOR keyboard, lol.

I'm not even going to try it with my crappy keyboard. Some of the keys stick and a few will barely depress at all.

Last time I took a typing test I clocked in at a very average 55 wpm.

Mine was 84 wpm (88 wpm with 4 errors).  icon_smile It's probably been 24 years since anyone ever actually measured my typing skills for a job interview. I think back then when I interviewed for an editorial assitant job, I typed about 3 minutes with this giant clock timer next to the typewriter (circa 1987). My speed was up around 60 wpm, but I had way too many errors -- I just barely made the 45 wpm minimum once adjusted for errors.

I've been really happy with my improved typing speed on Logitech's illuminated keyboard (http://www.logitech.com/en-us/keyboards/keyboard/devices/illuminated-keyboard) which I've blabbed about elsewhere here, though it remains to be seen how it'll hold up under long-term SWTOR-hotkey-pounding.  icon_biggrin It's sort of a hybrid keyboard halfway between a laptop and regular keyboard but I really prefer the feel over either, and it's far quieter than more traditional keyboards.

Cool test, thanks for sharing.  icon_smile

Last time I took a test was back in the mid-80s for a Senior Typist position.  Tested out at 94 WPM with zero errors on an IBM Selectric.  Which got me a temp position paying $16/hr while still a high school student.  Woohoo!!!!  No idea what the speed is now, but will take it later when sitting at the office, instead of with the laptop in my lap.

This is VERY true. I spent a lot of time as a Bard in EQ1 - you had to type in 3 second bursts back then. Sadly, I know I'm getting slower as the years go on.

With the Tiger test however: 95 WPM - 3 errors = 92 WPM. I'll take it. biggrin

86 w/ 3 errors...

I think that I (and probably most people) type much, much faster when I'm not reading someone else's text and transcribing it like these tests do... if I'm just typing whatever the fuck I want, I have less errors, and it comes out faster... which is good, because I'm not interested in being anyone's transcriptionist.

Adjusted between 75 and 80, 0-3 errors. I find quotations slow me down in a huge way.

I really suck at typing. I would be around 80 WPM if you counted all the backspaces. My current book is hovering around the 80K word mark and I bet I do at least six typos per sentence. Not to mention pausing to right click on words to spell check. I'm in my mid-40's, too late to teach an old dog new tricks?  icon_wink
