    Re: Words per minute...

    I average a whopping 10 wpm. The forum hasn't increased my typing skills but has done a number on my carpel tunnel syndrome.

          I don't know what my wpm is now, but I remember back in high school ( in the late 40's) wpm was calculated after deductions for mistakes, spelling errors, punctuation, etc. I will say that the Forum has improved my speed in the last few years.

            I still subscribe to the 2 finger hunt and peck method but much faster since joining the Forum.

            Funny thing I just noticed. I use my left index finger but my right middle finger
            I wonder why

              I've been working on typewriters since 1986 (high school) and computers since 1989 (college). I've got a typing speed of 86 words per minute with a 3-word error rate per minute (and that's calculated into the words per minute rate).

              Very interesting to hear how many people can type so quickly. Definitely an art to learn. It was considered a pratical art in high school so I could graduate with the typing class. More people should learn.

                That's one thing I failed to mention is my error rate, which is high but I'm always hitting the backspace button without looking at the keyboard to make the corrections.


                I really lose time when I find out I made a mistake without catching it through each word I type.

                    I'm up to about 30 wpm right now. Adding a second finger really speeded things up for me!

                      I think the Forum may have increased that.
