Inspired by some guys chatting about type racing on IRC, I decided to make this thread. What's your typing speed? Post here.

To test your speed against others, go here - http://play.typeracer.com/

To do it solo, go here - http://www.10fastfingers.com/
I personally am a fan of solo typing. Type racing is just not my cup of tea.

I challenge you to beat my score:

Quote:
An average professional typist types usually in speeds of 50 to 80 wpm, while some positions can require 80 to 95 (usually the minimum required for dispatch positions and other time-sensitive typing jobs), and some advanced typists work at speeds above 120 wpm.[4][5] Two-finger typists, sometimes also referred to as "hunt and peck" typists, commonly reach sustained speeds of about 37 wpm for memorized text and 27 wpm when copying text, but in bursts may be able to reach speeds of 60 to 70 wpm.[3] From the 1920s through the 1970s, typing speed (along with shorthand speed) was an important secretarial qualification and typing contests were popular and often publicized by typewriter companies as promotional tools.

As of 2005, writer Barbara Blackburn was the fastest English language typist in the world, according to The Guinness Book of World Records. At 150 wpm


So, call The Guinness Book and give me the link once your name is in there.

No offense, but I'm a bit skeptical that you got 157 WPM.

Anyways, last time I tested, I got 72 WPM. About the average for my degree.

My typing speed is over 70 wpm. However, I usually use http://www.typingstudy.com to test my speed, because I believe it is more close to the real life situations.
