For this week's Tech Tip I tested my typing skills with TypingTest.com since the RankMyTyping.com website was not working on my computer.
I averaged at 54 word per minute, which is SAD considering just how much time I spend typing. I have noticed that the majority of my slowness is due to my dependence on auto-correct and spell-check. I don't bother to add apostrophes or correct spelling if I hit a wrong letter because I know my computer (or phone) will fix it for me. Blessing or curse? I still haven't decided.
I am tempted to try to amp up my speed through "typing exercises".
Its interesting. I really enjoy tests like this. It sort of puts things in perspective.
