Typing test

It began on Daniel Moth‘s weblog, reading about some typing test he had done with some other folks. Today I read about it again on Scott Hanselman‘s website and decided to take the test myself.

My results:
Number of words typed: 240 Test duration: 3 min Speed: 80.1 words/min. (400 keystrokes/min.)
Error penalty: 15 Accuracy: 93.8% It’s quite funny to see that I score higher then lots of the native English speakers. My accuracy isn’t that high, but some Americans are around 60 words per minute.

You can do the test yourself. Remember to press enter (twice) for only new paragraphs. The text will start scrolling by itself once you reach a number of characters.
