    Typing: WPM

    The recent thread on touch-typing gave me the idea to start this thread.

    Using a standard QWERTY keyboard, how many words per minute can you type? Note: WORDS per minute, not strokes. You can figure out a fairly accurate estimate of your WPM by using this site. If you'd be so kind, please play fair and don't attempt to cheat in any way. I would say that 2 times is fair: one for a quick warm-up, and another as your final. Any more times, and I feel that it wouldn't give the fairest results, as you would know what you were going to type ahead of time, and would have had too much practice with it.

    The poll included has separate options for those who touch-type, and those who do not. I'll start. I type an average of 85 words per minute, touch-typing.

    Have fun!

    Not fast at all. Too lazy to learn qwerty. A couple fingers do the trick.

    25-49 touch typing.
    Then again i use a keyboard layout designed for my native language so it is kinda difficult to type in english (eg: x,w,q are all assigned to the right pinky).

    I use QWERTY (US-International layout) and Bolnagari. I haven't done extensive typing with Bolnagari.

    46 WPM @ touch typing

    Probably could do much better in my own language. Actually I'm typing considerably faster atm because I know what I am going to say... #$%&"#$ no good English #$"#$ I think I typed as slow as I can read

    Code:
    Net Speed:      78 WPM
    (words/minute)
    Accuracy:     89%
    Gross Speed:     87 WPM
    (words/minute)
    I'm sure I'd be faster if I did this 1 or 2 more times.
