Here is a standard speed typing test, measured in Words Per Minute, and showing accuracy percentage.
Put your hands on the keyboard, concentrate and type carefully the paragraph shown.
Pay attention to capital letters!
Great various of texts to choose from
This is a neat and easy to use speed typing test. Its uniqueness is the wide range of texts you can choose from (classic books summaries, short stories, song lyrics, random facts, proverbs, easy to type texts and more). There is even a custom option, allowing you to paste your own text you would like the test to be based upon.
You can also set the time of the test to other than the 1 minute standard (to have for example a 2 minute or a 5 minute test, or if you rather a short 30 seconds test).
One very simple test, and the second more advanced
Note that in these tests the time starts ticking from your first keystroke. When you finish typing the passage, all the results and statistics will appear.
You will find here two types of tests, one is very simple, covering only the alphabet and simple punctuation (no capitalization).
The second test is more advanced, covering capital letters and advanced punctuation.
Four typing tests, from simple to very complex
