Ah but if you think about it if the people worked on not making mistakes, then with me for example on 7 mistakes, if I lowered that to your ammount of 3 mistakes by simple math it would work out my typing speed would be quicker.

Anyway I don't want this to turn into a cometition, just a way of passing our typing skills :)

I keep on typing it all out properly, but it still says there are mistakes, even though there are none. :confused:

EDIT: Nevermind. :p

No, because I had a faster cpm than you aswell. :ton: :D

Actually, Jacob is already faster than you with less mistakes so there's no way your typing speed would be faster by simple math. In my case, however, I could use "simple math" to say I could be better than Jacob :whi:
I'm just joking :p
But, I agree, this is for knowing our typing skills, not for a competition.

Once you click on the text area, the text will appear above it. You have to copy it all, exactly as it is.

I don't look at the keyboard either. When I'm at school and I type people say how do you know where the keys are and I say practise. They are say amazed by the speed, but I tell them that loads of people can type faster than me. It's not an amazing talent, but it is useful if you quickly need to type something (obviously)

However I seem to type much faster when I am writting what I want to write instead of what told to (like this post)

My 180 WPM is part of the reason why I bring a computer to school instead of write my notes by hand. Makes AIM/IRC conversations a bit one sided, though.

wow :eek: Alyssa and paranoia! :eek:

then I must be snail fingers :vlol: I dont look at the keyboard at all. but i dont use the ten finger system.. I use my own writing system but it's proven to work so far :ton: and ofcourse there is the other factor.. IM UBER CRAP AT ENGLISH! I only use the basic words.. and I constantly have trouble writing :( Id really love to learn more english..

Yeah lol - I'm not allowed to take my laptop to school (school says I cant) and I would trust it at my school anyway, it would probably get stolen

I also use only 2 fingers. How do i use 10 fingers?

Touch typing is a long, painful, and habitual process. For me, it started at the age of 2 and I reached my peak at about 4 to 5. (Which is also part of the reason why I left the U.S. public school system and turned to online schooling, until I went to high school).

If you have a keyboard like mine, there should be indents on the F and J keys. Those are where you place your index fingers.

Basically my ready key position is as follows.

Left pinky - Left Shift
Left ring - Q
Left middle - E or W
Left index - R or F
Left thumb - Space (usually not used)
Right thumb - Space
Right index - J
Right middle - I
Right ring - O
Right pinky - [When you put these fingers on the keyboard, do not move them away from their general area. The left pinky and thumb should move almost not at all, while all others should cover about four to five keys on the keyboard from their base position. The trick is to not think, or look at the keyboard at all. If you get as skilled as I am, you can flip the keyboard upside down behind your shoulders blindfolded, and turn the monitor off, and still type perfectly.

Now I'm trying to learn how to toe-type.

24-01-07, 22:25
UP TO HERE - I have done in the 10 finger system. I then slid back into the 2 finger system. I just can't stop in the 10 finger system and it is easier for me to use 2 fingers :) Thanks :D

That's prob as fast as I will get it. If I know what I am typing I can do it faster but reading it confuses me. Oh well that's it. That was fun tho. I will give it to my spouse tonight to do.

I also touch type. I use all my fingers. I cannot look at the keyboard. Gives me a headache.

I touch-type too... though I use three fingers + thumb on both hands, I don't use my pinkies for anything except the control keys, shift, and apostrophe. It's kind of partially self-taught, because I hate the "proper" touch-typing method due to not liking to use my pinkies, but my mum made me practise with a touch-typing CD until I was able to use more than my index fingers and thumbs. >_> When I got fond of writing stories, my pace picked up a lot just through practise. Now it's a comfortably fast pace without being so fast as to melt the keyboard. :D

One way to put people off when they try to bug you about stuff is to keep on typing while turning to face them. :D 'Course, sometimes they just slap you and tell you to stop showing off. ;)
