How fast can you type?

With our typing speed test you can easily determine your current typing speed online and free of charge. As a registered user you can even compare your typing test results with others and see how much potential you have left.

Why do I need a typing speed test?

Simply put: Our typing test helps you to better assess your current abilities and gives you the opportunity to compare your typing speed at different times. This is the basic prerequisite to tap your full potential and see how much time you should invest in your daily typing practice.

For example, it is recommended to test your typing speed before you switch to the 10 finger typing technique 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 to your old typing technique.

If you are already happy with your typing skills and did not practice for a long time, you can also use the typing test to check your typing speed regularly and see how you have evolved through daily usage.

Difference from the typing tutor

Unlike our typing practice there is no aids like the virtual keyboard and settings are limited in our typing test. It only serves to find out how fast you can type. It is also entirely up to you which typing technique you use.

Error Rate





The progress bar underneath your test results shows how significant your typing test is. Since your results may vary depending on the practice time, you have to type at least 10 minutes to get significant results. Your error rate should not be higher than 5% - if the progress bar turns red, you have to improve your error rate.
