How Fast Do You Type?

By Eric Limer on at

Back in the day, typing was something of a specialised skill. Or so I am led to believe. Frankly, it's hard to imagine. Now typing up a document isn't a task for some army of receptionists, but rather something we all do every day, at work, at home, on our phones (but that's different).

So the question is, how fast are we all typing? Consider this an extremely unscientific survey. You can do a quick typing test here, and get your net and gross WPM. Did you ever take a typing class in school? Do they still have those? Or do kids nowadays just learn how to do it as fast as they can in any haphazard way, home keys be damned? Let's see if we can get a feel for what the average speed is out there. Ready? Go.
