The keyboard is the primary input tool for computer work. How quickly and accurately you can type has a significant impact on the volume of work you can produce. This week we’re curious to see how your typing skills stack up and what you’ve done over the years to improve them. Years of practice? Switched to a Dvorak keyboard layout? Committed yourself to telling every person on the internet just how wrong they are? Whatever your tricks for increasing your skills we want to hear about them and how fast you type now.
