    Hey guys, I found an interesting site that measures how fast you type.

    Typing Test English - 10FastFingers.com

    Once you get your score, there should be a 'screenshot' button, click it, then open in 'paint', then just save as a .jpg!
    Or you can just screenshot the whole page and crop.

    Beat that!

    Very nice! I feel if they gave us complete sentences I would be able to do it faster.

    If you are able to find a typing test in your native language, I'd like to try it (provided it works on a US English keyboard).

    You'll have a hart time, because we have these nice and on our keyboard :) (I write with a Swiss keyboard also at work, as I still write some German and this way it's easier for me than to get used to two layouts)

    That would be hard on a US keyboard.

    Do you have any idea what key corresponds to the umlauts if I were to add German as a language in Windows 8?

    Not too shabby considering the fact that it's 11:00pm and I'm a little sleepy.

    Sorry, I went to bed yesterday because I have a nasty cold. Funny story: When I was lying there, feeling terrible, I suddenly realized I wrote "hart" instead of "hard", which is German for hard, and I slept even worse because I had to convince myself, that it would be incredibly stupid to get up just to change that ;-)

    I'm just looking for an English keyboard around here... '' would be '[' (to the right of P), '' would be ';' (to the right of L) and '' would be ',' (more to the right of L). The German layout is similar. (The Swiss has in addition all the French stuff on it.)

    I had no trouble understanding what you wrote. I hope you'll be feeling better soon. I had the flu a couple weeks ago and was miserable.

    There is no hurry for you to find the keyboard. It just looked like it would be fun for me to try the test in another language.

    I still type using the hunt n peck method. Actually, I've evolved to be able to just "peck" because my fingers have mostly memorized the key locations so I can just look at the screen, but I generally just use both thumbs, both pointer fingers, and occasionally my right middle. 75 is probably my bottle neck :/ I've been typing for something like 16 years though, not sure if it's possible to break the habit now.

    EDIT:

    I would be interested to see everyone's typing speeds from their Windows Phone - no need to download the app, their website works fine. Predictive text wouldn't work with the strangeness of the random letters on this site... although correcting its to it's saves time ;-) I took a screenshot from my phone (using UC Browser, not IE):
