    Default How Do I Increase Typing Endurance?

    I honestly believe that 110 WPM is fast enough for me as a 14 year old. However, after typing for around 30 minutes, my accuracy drops to around 92%, and my speed is lowered to around 80 WPM. I was wondering if there is any specific thing I can do to increase my accuracy and speed after long periods of typing. The only place I might be able to think of is custom paragraphs on 10fastfingers.com that are 300-2000 words long.

    Yeah, I have been wondering too. I think 30 WPM is pretty good with an accuracy of 50%, but after a while of forum browsing, I stop trying when I see this post.

    I think you are good enough, honestly.

    If you use 2 fingers, then the best you might be able to do without taking drugs for your fingers is 45 WPM or so. I use all ten fingers, which is probably why I can do so. Even though you think I'm good at it, I still think it'd be best to have good endurance.

    I've been typing around 110wpm ever since I was 15 and its never gone much higher.
    I'm not sure if typing endurance can even be improved, or at least very difficult to improve because fingers directly dont have muscles, and will just wear out from unvariabled exhaustion.

    I think it could just be typing for long periods of time, so that you can get used to long periods of typing, although that puts you at higher risk of RSI, which I really don't want to get.

    5% difference, why does it even matter`? You already type faster than 99,9% of human population.

    That's because 99.9% of the human population type by searching the keyboard with their pointer fingers. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    I (sometimes) use only my index fingers and my thumbs. I took the typing test and I got around 90+ WPM.

    Haha, no. I don't... use... drugs...

    Oh. I never answered the question. I think I'd like endurance to finish essays and homework faster. That's about it. It's also more convenient when you use electronics constantly, like me.

    Write essays for fun, if you don't get sufficient results rewrite the essay.

    I'm not a fan of the literacy department in school, and instead prefer the math and sciences. I do use these forums and the internet a lot though, so I believe that counts as practice.

    Type scientific reports.

    You should practice memorizing the keyboard. here's a trick i learned myself. when you are typing face anywhere but the board. Because when you see the keyboard you won't type faster with the accuracy.
    try to face somewhere , don't face on the keyboard the more you look the more your brain thinks more words slower.

    I've never been higher than 70 WPM lol... But idk if that's good or no since i don't use all fingers. I just memorize the place of the keyboard keys and my nearest finger will auto click it LOL
