Mines is 80 - 100 WPM.

About 85, 95% accuracy, when I'm really trying. Of course when I'm casual, I type maybe 40-50.

I vary from 90 to 110 WPM, depending on how I feel, on the text I have to type and on how warmed up I am.

I type around 70 wpm with 95% accuracy. Sometimes I can get up to 80-85 if I'm warmed up and typing something I enjoy.

I'm around 70wpm with 92% accuracy. This is my first time getting into touch typing, and I think I use my "own" technique since learning where to place your fingers was a bother for me. I can type words out with muscle memory but when it comes to random letters and numbers I am terrible. How can I get this better without the hours of practice and 13wpm recognition?

Cool this really helped thanks

David Firth's "Cream"

Around 90 words per minute with 94-97 percent accuracy. sometimes i type 85 wpm and sometimes i type 105. it changes pretty often.

I type comfortably and consistently with 99% accuracy at 110-120 WPM. I can max out at over 140 WPM with 98% accuracy or higher. Best speed ever reached was about 150 WPM.

Omg, how do you get that WPM? Mine is like just 40, max. 45. Admire you all.
By umbrellatyping - posted: 11 months, 1 week ago

I normally get about 50-70 wpm at around 80% to 95% accuracy.
By richard.bastar - posted: 11 months, 1 week ago

Wow, how have you achieved such speeds? I basically type without my pinky's, so I'm coming back here to practice from ground zero...sucks! BUT, I feel that it will be worth it eventually...

60-70 WPM, with usually 94-97% accuracy
By enyaloth - posted: 11 months ago

If I hit 90 I feel like I'm having a bad day. I've had a few 80's that just destroyed my soul LOL. I usually sit comfortably around 100, and have had a couple 120's. I've noticed that my accuracy actually improves at higher speeds, which usually sits around 95%-98% accuracy. I've hit 100% a few times.

Jeje. Yes. We do.
By user56273 - posted: 11 months ago

I'm currently sitting at around 100-110. for whatever reason I'm currently struggling to pick the right switch for me, I feel like Cherry MX Blue Switches are more distraction than helpful when it comes down to typing quickly. This is when comparing them to Cherry MX Reds.

Which ones do you guys use?
By tyler - posted: 11 months ago

Normally mine is around 100 to 110 WPM. I'm pretty much always above 90 WPM, and my accuracy is normally above 95%.

When I started out I was normally around 60 or 80 WPM, with like 95% accuracy still.

What is the use of this skill anyways? Lol. I don't work in an office or anything, I'm not really sure why I started trying to type really fast, lmao.
By iammunkk - posted: 11 months ago

Anywhere between 70-100 with 90%+ accuracy.
By user400381 - posted: 10 months, 2 weeks ago

I generally sit around the 85-100 WPM mark with 95% accuracy. This is a vast improvement over my 75 WPM average of about a year ago, when I began training to type quickly in earnest.

I've only done a few rounds at the moment, but my best is 132.25 (average of 112.19) with an average accuracy of about 94%.
By ceifero - posted: 10 months ago

Mine ranges between 60 and 45. I'm not sure how to gain more consistency and accuracy. I have, however, practiced exclusively in Portuguese, and the standard keyboards for the language aren't great. What slows me down more than anything is having to type accents and special characters, the keys for which are all crowded together on the far right of the keyboard.

I also think I'm getting bored with the few quotes available for the language I'm training in. I'd love it if more people contributed quotes in Portuguese. When I'm interested, I practice harder and I pay more attention (as I suspect everyone else does).

I'm madly jealous. If I typed that fast, I'd literally apply for a different job.
By whitelupin - posted: 10 months ago

I tend to get 80-90, but occasionally I'll get above 100. Just started actually working on this, however, so hopefully I'll get faster as I work on stuff.
By jdcunningham09 - posted: 9 months, 2 weeks ago

My typing speed is about 90 on average, with accuracy of around 97%. However, just today I did get 119 @100% somehow. No idea how it happened but it was cool.
By hysteriqul - posted: 8 months, 1 week ago

Between 125-140 WPM. 148 being the highest I've achieved.
By user58674 - posted: 8 months ago

Wow, you guys all type so fast... I'm at about 40-50 wpm, though have gotten in the 60's once or twice. Only got into touch typing recently though, in an attempt to try and type a bit quicker and without needing to look at the keyboard.

As a non-tech middle schooler I'm gonna say that I'm typing pretty fast.
Around 94% accuracy and 80 WPM.
By kashif - posted: 8 months ago

i'm typing at 35 WPM accuracy 92 ,
Please tell me a method to improve my speed?
I'm going to take a test for Job at 45 WPM! Please tell me.

70WPM and my target is 100WPM. So I'm working on it.
By user282294 - posted: 7 months, 3 weeks ago

I'm slowly creeping up to 50, pretty low-average but looking at my overall progress chart, I'm slowly but surely making progress, and that's good enough for me. My accuracy is probably around 95%, and its important to realize that accuracy is actually more important than speed, firstly because of course with bad accuracy you can't get good speed, but also and more importantly because in real-life usage you're usually not just blindly copying some random text, and you thefore spend some time thinking about what you're going to write before you write it, and it is therefore important that once you've decided what you want to write you be able to write it quickly and with ease.
Going as fast as possible is in that sense somewhat counter-productive as you'll porbably want to go back and re-write/phrase parts of the sentence anyway, but mistyping is always a waste.
Oh and spelling to, because once again in real-life you won't get a convenient red overlay telling you that you mistyped something.

My type speed is 40 WPM with a 99% accuracy, aiming for 45 WPM.

My typing speed is 50-55 WPM , and I'm beginner ..
By ayerdr - posted: 7 months, 3 weeks ago

I'm 32, and use computers all the time, however, typing a lot is not something I do much. You could say I'm a seasoned beginner as I'm from the generation where papers where about 50% typed, 50% handwritten throughout my school career. I'm at 60 WPM at 100% accuracy. In a past courier I timed at about 90 WPM at around 93% accuracy.
By alexbrun512 - posted: 7 months, 3 weeks ago

90-110WPM in tests, around 105WPM usually
By alexbhpp - posted: 7 months, 2 weeks ago

daum son. I do 40 to 60 usually cause of many missclicks. I guess my technik is lacking of accuracy.
