Typing Speeds

Do you feel that your typing speed / quality has improved since being a member of this forum?

I think mine has. Im a typist by trade, although i rely quite heavily on the spell check :bag: But i have noticed that since typing on here most days my speeds have shot up and i dont make as many mistakes which inturn makes me more productive at work. In fact, i think my company should pay Haydon for the service - i mean, it would be cheaper than a course im sure.

So - are you a one finger typist, or a touch typist ? Ive noticed a lot of people take forever to post - is that because you are typing with one finger - or do you think long and hard about what you are posting ?

I'm not perfect, but im so close it scares me

My typing is pretty cr @p but deffo has got better over the last while. Probably do about 60 wpm comfortably, but my sis is eighty and my mate 85 + :shocking:


depending on the topic I either think long and hard and sometimes run out of courage and end up deleting posts, and other times I run off at the keyboard -just emptying my brain like a waste paper basket and I sometimes wonder 'wtf was i on when I typed that' sort of thing..

I'm about 80+ wpm and I think that's why I've made so many posts. I'm constantly being told that I can't make more than one post in 30/60 seconds. It's very frustrating. :glare:

last time i was tested mega years ago I was 85 wpm on a typewriter ... i actually think I'm slower on a word processor cos it is so easy to correct the mistakes!

... i only came online to visit Delia's site for tips on how to season a frying pan ...

I can touch type but I am not very fast.

I have never been a typist at work and I have never taken a speed test, but going from tiggs speed in the quizzes, I would say about 25/30 wpm :ohmy:

I've always either had to use a typewriter or computer b/c of work. I'm about 80+ with fairly good accuracy. I'm left-handed and tend to shift my fingers over one place from the touch type position, which slows me up some. But I'm really fast at backspacing so it kinda evens out.?. Before I got addicted to you lot and this forum, I e-mailed a lot but find I'm on here more. Y'all have corrupted me...lol. :shocking: :bag: :w00t:

I guess I'm Cornish...:unsure:
