Typing Skills are more Important Than Ever! Today employers use the term “typing skills” but they’re really talking about “keyboarding” skills. While the typewriter and the computer keyboards are closely related, they’re not identical twins. If you’re a pro on the IBM Selectric, but you’re a bit dusty on the PC keyboard, your fingers are going to trip across each other looking for keys which no longer exist or aren’t where they used to be.
Even though there is a whole generation of computer literate people who have never even seen a typewriter in the wild much less used one, today’s jobs require computer keyboard skills which demand typing speed and accuracy.
Being fast on the keyboard is of no value if what you type is not accurate. Sure, you can be very accurate if you type with two fingers and stare at the keyboard, but you already know that this will cost you speed.
Speed and accuracy can only come from training your fingers to know the exact location of every key on the keyboard. Typing Speed and accuracy suffers when you have to remove your eyes from what you are reading to hunt and peck your way through the next sentence.
Have you ever seen someone who has mastered the keyboard when they are typing a document? It’s like watching a grand pianist playing in concert. Fingers fly and words almost scream across the screen. How do they get this good? Practice. How can you get this good? The same way.
Our typing test will help you increase your typing speed and accuracy. You’ll not only improve your speed, but you’ll receive a report detailing your results. Best of all, you’ll be prepared for the typing test that’s given to most applicants as part of the interview process.
I can type about 61 wpm without mistakes. Now if only I can get a job that will pay me to type. Wouldn’t that be cool?

I can type 68 wpm with great accuracy anyone need an employee who can type fast?
I would like to increase my speed and learn the keys so that I type without having to look at the keys all the time.
I would also like to type with minimum errors.
I have no mastery of the keys at all.
My accuracy is excellent like 98%, speed is another things – 61 wpm, it seem to go back and forth between 50 and 60. Um seems like a problem!!!
Danielle Anderson says
Depends on how flustered around the words are. My best is 123wpm, but usually ranges between 80-106wpm. Like I said, just depends!

No Commet, Just trying to build my speed on typing.
I need to type at least 45 wpm. Am only at about 35. If my hands wouldn’t get cold and stiff, I could probably do better.
i usually typed 50wpm+, it makes me mad sometimes
that the keyboard are sticky, seemed you are typing into a plain tile. that time when I have my keyboarding exam when applying as a call center agent and they flunk me down by that.
I have not worked in 4 years , I am a little rusty use to type 40 now i am down to 28
I type pretty fast, but it is weird that I STILL feel the need to look at the keys?? lol
I hope this will be up and working soon.
I can type past, as 45 to 50 wpm
my typing speed only 44; I’m applying for postion that requires 50 – 60 wpm!!
I’ve got a LONG way to go……
travis brown says
