Your score: 408 keys per minute ~ 81 words per minute
Language/mode: en
Ranking: That was fast - you can still improve, though.
Comparison: 18% of registered TyperA users using this language have typed a better result; 82% have a lower or equal result.

I thought I was slower than this. :)

Whats more important is the error count really. I just got out of bed (watching myth busters) and checked the forum, followed first post link to this game. So i had no warm up for typing. 51 words per minute. The second try improved to 71, and the third I was back up to my usual 89wpm. It's kinda crazy to see the vast difference between practiced and unpracticed typing.

3 spelling errors on 89wpm.

I normally type like about 50 words per minute but I find this program hard to use. When you type a word and you hit the space bar, the word will be erased and I will have to continue typing until time is up. Because I'm visually impaired (meaning I have vision loss but no vision in my left eye), I use ZoomText -- a screen magnification software and screen reader for visually impaired users. When I try to use ZoomText along with the TypeA online program, there's one problem: ZoomText doesn't support Java. I just don't know why but ZoomText uses a special display driver (ZoomText Display Driver) that enlarges the screen so that visually impaired users can access the computer. I know I'm going far off-topic but I use ZoomText to access the Internet, do some typing in a word processor, doing computer programming, etc. and I normally type about 50 words per minute.

61 WPM. In all honesty that is a very poor typing test.
-Once you hit the spacebard you couldn't go back and correct.
-Words like yer and eh
-Random sentences that kept them from flowing
-Was only two minutes

I usally type between 60 & 70 wpm with around 100% accuracy (because I correct the mistakes).

On that particular test I scored 74 WPM. I usually score about 85 WPM.

My best typing test score ever was 91 WPM.

This is a better typing test, by the way:

Didn't really take the time to look, does it use the standard 5 character (spaces included) is a word method?

It should also allow you to take the test using the Dvorak keyboard. Wonder how I would do then.

64 wpm... not great, but I keep getting tripped up. I can type faster than that. I spent too much time looking at what I screwed up.

Very nice! This depresses me because I type like I am missing fingers, which sucks considering I spend a disgusting amount of time in front of a computer. But at my high school guys just did not take typing. I'm thinking about taking a typing class at the community college or something. Might be cool.

the only typing class i ever took was a 4th grade typing class that they forced us to take.
