Typing speed is something I love to improve even my job is not of a typist but I love when I type faster. I started using computer late in the year 2006, I used to type by seeing the letters one by one. Gradually I became used to of computers during my BCA studies but my typing was at worst. I could type 10 words per minute only! Yes, it was my best speed in those days. Later when I saw my friends who are able to type more than 45-50 WPM, I started to think about my speed. I set typing speed as my goal and practiced a lot by using online tools. After a lot of practice I was able to reach 20 WPM. I left practicing but time to time when I feel like typing I keep on testing my speed and gradually I noticed that I was now able to type more than 45 WPM. That was Amazing for me!
My fastest typing speed is 78 WPM till date but that is only one time I have reached ha ha! If I calculate average then I can say I can easily type more in between 55-65 WPM.
Anyway now I stop bragging about my typing speed and let’s discuss about the online tools I have used to increase my typing speed till now.
Before I share the list of tools let me tell you why should you improve your typing speed?
For me the reason is I love to work faster on PCs or laptops. And the other thing is, even you are well versed with computers, if you don’t type fast other people think that you are a novice but if you type fast, they think, OMG! How fast this guy can type? He must be an expert in computers. It’s just the mentality of few people.
I would say, improve your typing speed to feel better, to work faster and to save time.
I am sharing Top 7 online websites which can help you improve your typing speed:
