How fast can you type?

With the aid of the typing test developed by the TypingAcademy you can easily determine your actual typing speed online and free of charge.

Why do I need a typing speed test?

Our typing test helps you assess your current abilities better and also gives you the opportunity to compare your typing speed at different times.

For example, it is recommended to test your typing speed before you switch to 10 finger writing and begin practicing. This allows you to do more typing tests with all 10 fingers later and compare your progress in the 10 finger system with your old typing technique.

If you are already typing with 10 fingers for a long time, you can also use the typing test to check your typing speed regularly.

Difference from the typing tutor

Unlike our typing tutor there is no aids like the virtual keyboard in our typing test. It only serves to find out how fast you can type. It's also completely up to you, whether you type with all 10 fingers or with your previous typing technique.

Your error rate shoould not be higher than 5% - if the progress bar turns red, you have to improve your rate.
