What are good typing speeds

I was just concerned with how slow I am typing I am actually struggling with typing on the qwerty keyboard than any other. I am finding it very hard to write fluently. Anyone else have this problem and know how to fix it. (My typing speed is 40)


Consistent daily practice will ensure you continue to strengthen your typing abilities. And remember, keyboarding is measured in both speed and accuracy, so it is definitely more important to consider how well you are typing rather than how fast.

It sounds like you’re off to a great start! In general, the average typist can type 41 WPM, so you may not be as slow as you think! Make sure you are maintaining an accuracy rate around 92%, about 8 mistakes per 100 words. Only when your accuracy is strong should you be pushing for a higher WPM.

You’re got this! Keep at it and you’re sure to see significant improvement in no time.
