I type fairly fast.  I sucked at trying to learn with typing software but eventually learned how through trial and error while typing essays for English classes. Razz

Here's my results on the first try.  I don't usually type quite this fast, so there were a few more mistakes than I normally would have.

Words per minute (WPM) 103
Keystrokes 552
(514 | 38)
Correct words 100
Wrong words 7
You are better than 97.79% of all users (position 2246 of 101519 - last 24 hours)
This was fun, I'll have to try it again later and see what my score is then. Very Happy

The last time I tried one of these things (years ago) I was around 83 or 84, so I haven't really improved at all since then (whenever that was).

Words per minute (WPM) 84
Keystrokes 418
(418 | 0)
Correct words 76
Wrong words 0
You are better than 92.81% of all users (position 7317 of 101698 - last 24 hours)

WPM 58
Keystrokes 326
correct words 59
Wrong words 5
Percentile 79.6

but it's not a completely correct test, because a good typer is reading ahead, with the sentence rolling on before the fingers.  This was nonsense, so one's brain can't really plan ahead. I think we'd be at least 30% faster if they were real sentences.

I agree. It felt weird just typing random words.

naah, i think because it is random words it's more correct. you still read ahead and u gotta type the word as it pops into your head. it's like taking notes or copying a text. 

i don't write quite as fast as eldo, but i didn't have all that many mistakes and i write just as fast in norwegian as in english ^^ and u should see me type Benedict Cumberbatch.

I thought you'd overheat halfway through typing 'Benedict Cumberbatch' and would have to stop and fan yourself before continuing.

But Norc, if the words are random you can't keep them in your head or even read them as fast.  I read in chunks of at least half a sentence at a time, and it slows down my typing if I have to keep laboring over the text like that. In fact in many cases I may be rewriting sentences as I type because I mainly get the logic rather than memorize them.  Not that I'm a lightning fast typer, but it does make a difference if my mind is burdened and can't flow.

When I'm writing like an essay or something, I only type in short bursts before I have to pause or at least slow down and think about what I'm going to write next. But in this case I just keep my eyes fixed on the screen and let my eyes move along the line of text at a speed only slightly faster than my fingers are moving. It's a little unnatural but not too hard, for me anyway. Shrugging

i see word i think word, so u basically write at the speed of thoguht, without thinking it through. so it's farilu accurate. if you think a senctense it will be basically the same.

I don't think so. It's like driving on a dark night with headlights set low just ahead of the car, or with high beams so you can see the turns coming up. Different speeds are possible if you can anticipate.

I edit so much I can't imagine using a transcription program.  I understand it used to be common for people to dictate letters and such, but I have to see it on the page to see where i'm going, then go back and rearrange and stuff.

I take it you can do inserts and stuff by moving around the cursor?  But your language use is so creative I can't imagine how any program could handle you...

I just realized I have dragon dictation on my iphone (looked cool and was free, so downloaded it and promptly forgot about it). I thought I'd test it out on a Figgy classic:

Original: "Blast it all to buggery"
Transcription: "Plastic going to buggery"

Good luck with school. Wink
