Wanted: Typing Data

Posted by Michael Dickens on January 16, 2010

In order to improve my typing program, I am looking for good data on typing speed. Previously I had based the scoring system on my own estimation of how hard different movements would be, but now I want something concrete.

If you already use Amphetype, then all you need to do is send it to me off your hard drive. If you have it, post a comment here and I will give you my email address.

If you don’t already use Amphetype, then now is a great time to start. It is a program where you can type into it and it records data on how fast and how accurately you type. Feel free to send it to me after you’ve accumulated a good amount of data.

    I’ve been using Amphetype for a little while and I think I have a good amount of data if you’re interested.
