Improving my accuracy

How can I increase my typing accuracy?


Typos are signals of what techniques you still can improve on, and you can use these to concentrate on those techniques.

See which keys give you a hard time and identify which of the two hands is weaker or sloppier than the other. Then focus on strategic practice targeting these issues to take your touch typing to the next level.

Hello, @francoday!

An average typist should be maintaining an accuracy rate around 92%, or about 8 mistakes per 100 words. To improve on accuracy, slow your typing to focus more on typing correctly rather than quickly. As your amount of mistakes lowers, only then should you be pushing for a higher WPM. And, as with anything typing related, the key is practice, practice, practice!
