This test caters to those that don't look at the keyboard when they type.

Also, "The Enchanted Type Writer" is more of a random smattering of words than anything else. Terry Schiavo could formulate more comprehensible sentences.

It took you a really long time to type that comeback. One or two hands?

If you have to look at the keyboard then you don't know how to t ype.

Indeed, which is why it is an accurate measure of raw typing ability. Instead of finishing the sentences from knowledge, you have to look, and type.

Now quit your whining and type you panzy.

Program sucks...It kept getting off the word I was on and would not realize I was still on one word behind or ahead and was counting everything as incorrect.

14 WPM 78% accuracy. Not bad for having a cat sitting on my keyboard while I'm trying to type.

Im honestly embarassed to post my results. I type fast. I use the delete religiously. But apparently I fail hardcore at dictating.

Back to reading Harry Potter before party tonight!

not good f this test it doesn't count because you have to read it before you can type it, then you have to make sure both you and the computer are on the same word. stupid shi*
