80 words

Speed test

You type 422 characters per minute
You have 80 correct words and
you have 1 wrong words

(the wrong word was "them", for some reason when I'm going fast, the 'h' is always faster out of the gate ;) ).

One good thing that has come out of being a transcriptionist, I can type faster now :P.

We wont talk about the annoying parts of the job, like hearing everyone's "um, uh, and, and" stuff that they do, when I read closed captioning on a show and they don't show everything the person said, totally bugs me!

Anyway, carry on ;)

I will probably type like 10 words a minute. I can't type fast at all, nor can I NOT look at my hands while typing. Transferring stuff over from paper (like a handwritten report to a typed version) sucks too because it takes me so blasted long.

Who reads the closed captioning anyway? Bugs me having that crap on the screen, plus it is always like 5 min behind what is actually happening!

Deaf people do ;), yeah, some shows its fairly accurate, but others are way off, very annoying. I used to read it when I was on the treadmills at the gym, I would listen to my iPod and read the closed captioning on the tv, nice distraction while running no where fast.

You are fast! I have tried twice and can't get that fast! I better keep trying!

Meadow, I had to try it out! LOL I'm glad to know that I can still totally type! ;)

QueenMeadow said...

Lisa, I type for my job so I have to be fast or I would never stop working ;).

Though I have to admit that I was very pleased with my score ;).

I like to go to Job Service and take their typing test in my never-ending quest to get over 100 wpm (no matter how many times I try, I ALWAYS get 99 -- but with 98 percent accuracy, does that count for anything?).

I'm a transcriptionist, too.

QueenMeadow said...

I did it, I got 100% and 84 wpm, woot! Now I'll have to try to beat that again, lol.

I've already started trying to get my files done faster and faster, so why not try to pass a typing test faster? ;).

I canNOT get into that site, tried through a few other bloggers who had this up today as well . . . evnen cut and paste I get a half blue blank screen. Bizarro.
maybe I'm just too fast and they're afraid!

QueenMeadow said...

I think they are afraid, very afraid ;).

I hope it lets you on soon though, it's quite fun!
