Like 50WPM, +/- 5 when generating content.

I don't transcribe or mindlessly drone paragraphs. That's for secretaries, or those with 120+WPM e-peen.

I type around 65-75 WPM. I can probably type faster than that when I know what I want to say, but when doing the tests, and you have to read and then type, I feel like it slows me down.

I type at 97-103 WPM apparently (tried at both hi-games and keyhero.org) on this rubber dome keyboard. I'll need to try again when I get back to my Das.

When I attempt to use Dvorak it drops to 11 WPM. That's quite the gap to try to overcome!

Getting a decent fast WPM is not hard, getting the correct finger positioning is hard.

There's no correct finger position, imo. Type whatever is the most comfortable position for you. For example, the word "intro" the 'correct' way would be to type the T and the R, would be the index finger. But since they are so close, it's faster to type the T with the index finger and the R with your middle finger.

btw, in 10fastfingers my record is 113 wpm (steelseries 6gv2 with mx blacks) and in typeracer, 106wpm.

well, there MAY be an "ideal" finger layout... but that would vary with language.

The standard "home row" technique is terribly out of date. asdfjkl   is silly...    awefjio;  is the best home row

If you want to take it a step further replace ; with "right shift",   this way you don't have to  turn your right wrist to type "left" hand capitals.. ;D

QWERTY is out of date. Oh wait, it has actually never been suitable for typing in any existing language. I can't think of any human for that staggered typewriter physical layout would be suitable either.

I've been teaching myself to type on the Race (with it's smaller right shift key) and that has recently brought my Typeracer average down from 85wpm to 78wpm... I have a lot of problems with the " and the : for some reason... mostly because I learned bad habits a long time ago and don't use the left shift like I should.

Anywhere from 60 to 80. Though that is my actual normal speed, not some high score on a webpage.

It may not seem very fast compared to some people here, but I think my typing speed is fairly fast, and fast enough for me.

My typing speed varies from 70-90. I seem to be in the bottom of the category here compared to ya'll typing freaks, but it gets the job done for me.  Though i wish to break the 100 some day, but in my 27 years of my life i still have yet to get there.

very impressive :-) . To reach such spead you must spend severals hours typing (straight hours) per day. Let me guess you are a writter :-)

I wish. I just love typing. Maybe some day I'll start a novel or a script, but I can't guarantee finishing anything.

Me too. I don't admit this outside of this forum. Everybody thinks I'm weird, even my fellow nerds. But to me, the sound of a nice key switch is just as musical as playing a piano. I go to a number of typing sites after working all day on my keyboard just to play music and relax. I even go to youtube just to listen to other keyboards that I like.  ;D

Burst speed of 163 on colemak for invented text, average speed of 120.
Burst speed of 136 on colemak for read text, average speed of 110.

My speed on qwerty and colemak is exactly the same for read text. I don't really read ahead

I'm getting slower because I have CTS in my left hand. I mostly use only my index finger in my right hand (one without CTS).

Hold on, typing with one finger is slow. Are this words per minute or characters per minute you posted?  :-)

Hey, are you able to switch between qwerty and colemak on the same keyboard and still achieve the same WPM ?
Or do you have different physical keyboards for each layout? I'm asking because I can type both dvorak and qwerty,
but not on the same keyboard, I find it confusing. Instead, I've associated dvorak with split/matrix keyboards (Kinesis Advantage, Ergodox, etc), and can only type QWERTY on normal flat keyboards and laptops.
 So I'd like to learn about your experiences here.

45g actually hurts my left pinky from using the shift.

I'm also a big guy (six foot five) with freakish lanky hands, but there's something about the way the left shift really HITS the bottom on a 45g (I have a 55g realforce and it does NOT have this problem because of the cushioning effect from the 55g rubber dome.)

Typing on this scissor switch right now is actually less painful and I'm typing faster.

Now at home I will still be using my 55g Topre Realforce 87u.... it's amazing how much better 55g is (at least for little old me)

I average at about 90 WPM. Not the best obviously, but it serves my needs well enough. I do try to put in some practice time whenever I can, though.
