How Fast Do You Type – Elf Knows It [ARCHIVED]

Typing speed seems to be on the increase rapidly. Gone are they days when everyone in a library would be hunched over the keyboard searching for letters with their index finger. Usually its common to see people typing at a pretty average speed. The average typing speed today is between 50-70 wpm, some jobs even require a typing speed of 80-90 wpm!

WPM = Words per minute

Have you ever wondered how fast you type?
You can head over to and they have a great typing test where you just have to copy a selection of text off the screen and they calculate your typing speed in WPM or CPM. It’s good fun too, trying to beat yourself!

Did you take the test? What’s your speed? Let me know with a comment.
