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?
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.
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.
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).
