Took me a few tries to get 0 faults, but I was writing 89 or 90 all the time even with flaws. Did it in danish, as I write quicker in my native language, funny enough..



Edit: Remember, it is not the number of keystrokes but number of correct words that are the ultimate achievement!

I'm a little confused as to the difference between wpm and correct words. If wrong words are zero then how are these two values different ?

I assume it takes an average word length into account somehow. Otherwise if you were lucky with many of's and it's you'd get a much higher score than someone who has to type Indian a hundred times.

The way that it was calculated back when I took typing classes a few decades and some ago was to count 5 characters as "a word"...

Yeah, it is weird. I did more words per minute, yet all of them aren't counted?

I wonder if it doesn't count words were I had to edit a few of them, or if it has an algorithm were it takes keystrokes and words into account? I guess it would be more fair, if a language has more short words than others, although I would expect the software to make an equal mix of 3-8 letter words for each language for fairness.

Seems like you are right! I hit 451 words divided by 5 = 90 WPM.

Yeah, just calculated. All of the posted results fit that, +/- rounding.

I wanted to try and see how fast I could type on my Story HD keyboard.

Unfortunately it doesn't work. I can type and the timer starts but it doesn't take words into account and it doesn't scroll... and most other tests I can find require punctuation, which is kinda hard on the Story HD (only via symbol key shortcuts which I can't be bothered to memorize)

I can't seem to beat my record. I guess I'm trying too hard, after a night's rest maybe I'll do better tomorrow

Well, there is some progress.

Also I just found out that the site lets you put in any values for the screenshot URLs so anyone can cheat all my other screenshots are legit though.

It's too bad cause this could have been a good thread methinks. But if cheating is possible then the game is off

I have a (real) screenshot on my work computer that beats all here, but wanted to do even better before posting it.

I type about 160 in 1 minute bursts when it's not random words, but the random words really slow me down as I mistake one word for another (hard to read accurately at that speed when it's random). Maybe I'll just post it tomorrow when I get to work.
