    LOL…. I am not even going to attempt this as I failed typing in high school miserably on the old IBM Selectric, and I just don’t want to know how slowly I type and how many mistakes I make!

    Laugh! I thought that Typing was the single most useful class I took in high school — given the computer revolution and how important computers have become in my life. 🙂 I used to be much, much faster — I had my own word processing business and time = money. I had to REALLY concentrate to get 82 wpm this time though. 🙂

    My stepfather is a Russian to English document translator. He used to hire a typist — when I was growing up, he had one who could type faster than the IBM selectric. That was my goal and I achieved it when I was in high school. 🙂 Now, though, I couldn’t do it.

    And, of course, he doesn’t have a typist anymore — he uses voice recognition software so he talks and it types. Amazing!

    I saw this post early this morning and decided – no, I won’t test well. LOL! I hate timed typing tests but the last few I have taken since 2002 were quite good – 70 wpm accurately. Not bad. But, my Mom typed 90 wpm on a manual typewriter when she worked at the Baltimore Sunpapers back in 1950! That’s amazing to me.

    get out. 82 words per minute! I came in at 46. Yeesh. No wonder it takes me so long to get around and leave comments. Happy New Years, Lizalee- may it be peaceful, calm and ful of happiness and good health.

    WOW. I type fast, but rely entirely on the spell check function to correct my mistakes. So I come nowhere near your blazing speed.
