Typing Speed Test

There was some discussion on the Board about typing speed...got me thinking about Mavis Beacon...Anyway:

Here is: Online Typing Speed Test

It takes 1 minute, painless. Post your score!

I took the test once, bad run, but my score was whopping 37 wpm as a hunt-n-pecker.

Try and beat THAT score.

I am sending this to the Mrs.- she's fassssst.

Cool site! I honestly haven't done a WPM test since my teenage Mavis Beacon days. I got as good as 40 WPM back then, if I'm recalling correctly. 77 WPM today! With one error... Glad to see I've improved in something.

*GASP*

I just looked up "Mavis Beacon" on Wikipedia. Did you know that there IS no Mavis Beacon? The name is entirely made up and the box photo is of Caribbean-born model Renee L'Esperance!

I don't know...I feel so....betrayed...so duped by Marketing Teams.

That is a fun fact that she is fictitious.

Don't listen them, Rusty. It's Fake News.

I hope you and Mavis are very happy together.

For anyone who has an older PC: I still have a 3-1\2 "Mavis Teaches Typing" probably find it in shareware as well. LoL
