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?

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.

I normally get about 50-70 wpm at around 80% to 95% accuracy.

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: 2 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.

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: 2 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.

Anywhere between 70-100 with 90%+ accuracy.
By user400381 - posted: 1 month, 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%.

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: 1 month 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: 1 week, 6 days 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.
