Q & A
How sitting posture affects typing speed?
Sit straight and remember to keep your back straight, Keep your elbows bent at the right angle, Face the screen with your head slightly tilted forward, Keep at least 45 - 70 cm of distance between your eyes and the screen, Еxpose the shoulder, arm, and wrist muscles to the least possible strain. The wrists can touch the tabletop in front of the keyboard. Never shift your body weight to the wrists by resting on them
Why are there no difficult words in this test?
The words are selected from a list of commonly used words. Some typing speed tests use words with difficult spellings, but I think that's unfair. I want to measure typing speed, not reading skill! The lack of difficult words in this test also enables this site to be used as a typing game for kids. For difficult words you can choose DIFFICULT option from the task bar.
What are CPM and WPM?
They're short for Characters Per Minute, and Words Per Minute. The "raw CPM" is the actual number of characters you type per minute, including all the mistakes. "Corrected" scores count only correctly typed words. "WPM" is just the corrected CPM divided by 5. That's a de facto international standard.
Does speed matter?
Only if you're not fast enough. :)
What can I do to improve my score?
They say that practice makes perfect. Apart from practicing, you can do a few things to get better at typing. Learn to touch type (force yourself to look at the screen, not the keys), get a better keyboard, improve your ergonomics by
changing your display and furniture.
