I'm 21. Been trying to improve my typing speed since 17 when I stopped playing games on ps4 cuz it broke. Since then I just had to play on mouse and keyboard. Typing faster for me was just a plus of being obliged to play on M&K, I started getting higher speeds and started to like it, atm I main spanish which is my main language but soon I will try to do some typing on english to improve even more. Repetition is a huge key. But yea, I'm confident TouchTyping made it to gen Z.
I am 18. I've been practicing since I was around 16, so it wasn't really something that was passed down on to me. While I can't verify post covid, in my high school there were plenty of people who were hunting and pecking. It's not that there were not any attempts to pass it down (mostly by the school), it's just that none of it really stuck with anyone. I guess in stereotypical Zoomer fashion. Watching keyboard reviewers online was much more motivating than anything teachers gave us.
22, but it doesn't matter sinceI am immortal. Began typing in November 2019 after seeing others type at the speed of light and getting inspired to let them fell the bitterness of defeat by typing faster. Side information: I haven't yet succeeded on my valiant mission. Other than that, oddly enough, I thought the average age on this site is around 80 or more. but I am glad there is an age shift down. ʕ ﾟ ● ﾟʔ
21, I just wanted to be able to brag to someone about being able to (eventually) type 80+ wpm. I still don't know who I'm going to brag to but I'm hoping it'll also help with finding computer-based jobs.
I'm 17 and I have been able to correctly type with the home row method for about a year now.
I used about 5 fingers (pointers, middles, and a thumb). It wasn't hunt and peck, because I had a good feel for the layout of a keyboard, but I moved my hands around a lot, and I developed my typing style out of necessity for writing essays. I could probable do about 30-40 wpm back then. Now, I use standard home row, and my average speed on this site has been hovering around 90 wpm. Practically speaking, I can type an essay at about 70 wpm when I don't have to think much about what I am writing.
I'm 14 and I had to learn to touch-type in, like, grade 4 with these stupid mats that we had to put over the keys so you couldn't see them, and yeah everyone said that I could type really fast soooo I just do it for fun now. I'm not the best, but the fastest I've ever gotten was like 110wpm I think?
I am 22, though I only made an account within the last year since people say I type fast and I just wanted to measure it every now and then. I would say I have probably been typing fast since middle school probably. I spent too much time on the Internet back in the day. I still do, but I used to, too.
I'm 21, and I started learning touch typing last year after I bought my first mechanical keyboard. I got no particular reason to do so, but I study Information Technology, so touch typing is kinda useful to me
I'm 20, I just started trying this out this week. I was job searching and saw that most stay at home jobs (I'm a stay at home mom) require certain wpm and accuracy percentages if you're going to be working with a computer so I wanted to start practicing and getting better.
