Clever use of speeding up the film to make this guy look like he's typing at several hundred words a minute.  By the way don't emulate the way he is sat or you will end up with back ache!

 
 

How fast you score on a typing speed test can be affected by your posture.  Check out my new article, I've just posted, that gives some pointers on how to sit correctly to get the best results on your typing speed test.

Have you ever felt like you were on trial whilst you were taking a typing speed test?  It can certainly be quite a pressured situation when the clock is ticking.

If you have spare a thought for the competitors who were recently pitting their typing speed skills against each other at the National Court Reporters Association National Convention.  They had to prove their skills (the best of which are typing as high as 280 WPM) in a court room session being presided over by an actual trial Judge!

Here's how one of the contestants - Mellony Arial described her first experience in this competition.....

"You have to keep your nerves in check, 'cause if you don't, your hands start shaking."

And this came from someone with almost 20 years of court reporting experience!


Here's a link to the article ........

Hi - when I was teaching I was often asked what's more important speed or accuracy?  Well both are going to have an impact on your score, when you're doing a typing speed test, so its important to consider both elements.  However, its very easy to get carried away with pushing your speed.  But if accuracy suffers, this will in turn, have an impact on your speed. 

Have a look at my web page - Speed Vs Accuracy which expands on my thoughts further......
