    Default Words Per Minute - How fast are you?

    How fast can you type? The speed of my typing is 50-59 words per minute (WPM).

    Respond to the poll provided if you wish. Also, feel free to post speeds as well.

    If you don't know your speed automatically (which I doubt you will), some good sites are:

    I've gotten 104, but that was particularly high. I can type over 90, if I'm particularly trying.

    According to typingtest.com (above link), I got:
    Net Speed: 72 WPM
    (words/minute)
    Accuracy: 86%
    Gross Speed: 83 WPM
    (words/minute)

    But I think that test is particularly hard. I can type, especially with the help of a program that autocorrects capitalization, faster, when I know the material a bit better, or at least it is a lot less random (punctuation, etc., that I rarely use is hard).
