How to Double Your Typing Speed

Hey guys,

So I recently wrote an article about how to improve your typing speed. I felt it would be beneficial to share with this community because many of you are writers yourself. However, it would also benefit almost anyone. Everyone nowadays spends time writing, emailing, or some form of typing on a computer or device.

In the article I cover the best way to improve your typing speed. I've also included a typing speed test for free (kind of fun actually)

=>

Anyways, I hope it can help some of you.

PS. Post some of your scores below!! Mine is 82 WPM

i learned to touch type 45wpm in two weeks
then with practice i went well over 100wpm

using the star touch typewriting course

the key is to first learn where everything is without looking
then to build up speed by practicing the most used letter combinations

the ion ere ...
when you can do the most used letter combinations at 200wpm equivalent
the others will not slow you down much under 100wpm

hint
practice in your head as you drive
see a sign imagine yourself typing it
that practice is as good as sitting at a typewriter

100wpm.. That's fast! And I thought I was quick with 82 lol.

That's a good recommendation though, to practice without looking and also practice while you are doing other activities. Or specifically to practice typing different sentences you see.

100wpm? That's insane. On a good day I can manage about 60.

I used to type at over 90 wpm while transcribing shorthand. But then other typists who rattled away at well over 100 wpm started having painful wrists - what we now recognize as carpal tunnel syndrome - so I slowed down.
Fast typing in short bursts is okay, but it's better to plod along, especially on today's flat keyboards.

I've been using ergonomic keyboards for years and love it.
