This week’s poll question is: How Fast Do You Type?


Those of us who spend a lot of time on our computers know that there’s often a huge gap between the typing speed of a geek and an everyday human. There’s also a wide gap between those who do two-finger typing and those who touch-type. Regardless of your usage and your method, the effectiveness of your typing is determined by how fast you can accurately type. When you write off the top of your head, how fast are you typing?

How does your typing speed change when you’re transcribing things? Do you two-finger type or touch type? What keyboard layout do you use and has it affected your typing speed? Let us know in the comments!
