I got 78 words per minute with only 3 mistakes on my first try.

How about you folks?

Care to you reveal your typing speed / accuracy on the first try?

Hah.. I make careless mistakes too often when I type as fast as I can. If I were to relax, I type around 60 WPM with little to no mistakes. But I probably got like 20 mistakes before my pride was broken in that test.

You made 2 mistakes

So it only counted the mistakes I left behind.

But since you corrected, it probably affected your speed, so there is a tradeoff.

Nothing beats copy & paste

But that proves nothing.

The fastest typing speed on an alphanumeric keyboard, 216 words in one minute, was achieved by Stella Pajunas in 1946 on an IBM electric

An average professional typist types usually in speeds of 50 to 80 wpm

As of 2005, writer Barbara Blackburn was the fastest alphanumerical English language typist in the world, according to The Guinness Book of World Records. Using the Dvorak Simplified Keyboard, she has maintained 150 wpm for 50 minutes, and 170 wpm for shorter periods. She has been clocked at a peak speed of 212 wpm.
