Typing Tutorial
We will teach you the touch typing method.

Basic results

This offers a quick and exact overview of your lesson values. You can see the error rate limit and speed limit, opposite to your real speed and error rate. There are more values which are not important to pass the last lesson. Numbers can inform you about your total typing time, length of lesson text, percentage of completed test, number of errors, and lesson number.

The program uses gross strokes; it corresponds to the number of needed keystrokes to complete the text. There are usually more gross strokes then characters. For example character R is counted as two strokes, because it is typed using a combination of SHIFT and r keys.



Copy speed for each character

This list contains all the characters which were already used in the lesson text. Calculated here is the average delay,and amount of instances for each character in the typed text.

Last column "Number of keystrokes for this character" can be used for ease of recognition of more complicated characters. All column headers can be used for sorting. Just simply click on the column or use the right click which open a context menu.

Try to reduce the delay for the slowest characters which are listed in this schedule.



List of characters where there was an error

This contains only characters where a mistake was made. You can see what character was used instead of the original one. Each character where there was an error also has information about the error rate, number of errors, number of characters inside a text, and number of keystrokes for this character.

Try to concentrate no characters with the highest error rate.



Speed and error rate for fingers

You can analyze the speed and error rate of each finger. See a list of mistaken characters, and the number of errors for each finger. The finger delay is calculated from all characters which were used in the text, and controlled with a concrete finger.



Speed diagram

There are three diagrams: Red line - user average speed Blue line - user current speed Green line - lesson speed limit

Current speed is calculated from the speed of the last 10 typed characters. Average speed is calculated from all typed characters. The graph shows the speed progress during typing (Axis X is a time).

The graph will also let you know when you were under the speed limit. This is when the red line is under the green one. Typing rhythm can be also easy read from the diagram. If the blue line (current speed) is changing its level very often, then the users typing rhythm is not steady. An ideal rhythm is when the red and blue line have nearly the same shape.

Dots inside the speed diagram determine the exact time when a user presses a key. Speed limit (green line) also contains dots and if these dots are placed with a same distance, then the typing rhythm is steady.
