Back in MY day...

I came across a speed-typing test link here and had to try it out. I guess that typing course in high school and the piano training came in handy (for more than playing piano) after all! Mind you, this score was for my second attempt, and I have a feeling the algorithm is more generous than what they used in high school (which was to exclude any characters/words typed after your third incorrect word).

107 words


Do people still learn to type first on typewriters, or do they start on computers right away?

I have been wondering about this too, if kids learn to type at a very young age, since they're using computers before they talk now.
