Typing Speed Test
Typing Speed Test is a lightweight cross-platform utility with a pretty self-explanatory name, as it gives you the possibility to find out how fast you can type.
The user interface is really simplistic and packs only a few configuration settings. You can start testing your typing abilities by writing down as fast as you can the text that appears in the primary panel.
As soon as you start the typing process, the program automatically displays the speed, accuracy percentage and time needed to complete the test. The words that are entered incorrectly are colored with red, while the right matches are displayed with blue.
What’s more, the application offers support for sound notifications when you type words correctly or wrongly.
Typing Speed Test allows users to adjust the volume for the sound notifications and background music, and switch to a full screen mode for a better focus on the test.
On the downside, you cannot pick a testing level (easy, normal or difficult) and upload an audio file to be used as background music.
During our testing we have noticed that Typing Speed Test displays the speed results very quickly and without errors throughout the entire process. It remains light on the system resources, so it doesn’t hamper system performance, nor interfere with other programs’ functionality.
All things considered, Typing Speed Test provides a simple but efficient solution for testing your typing skills. Thanks to its ease of use and intuitive layout, this tool may become ideal for less experienced users.
