With this tool, you will be able to know the number of words that you can cover per minute. It is one of the complex tools, and one that can greatly enhance your typing speed. You will be provided with a text that you are supposed to type, after which your results will be presented in terms of WPM (words per minute).

  1. SpeedTest

The tool does not only test your typing speed but accuracy as well. It should be noted that any mistake made during the typing exercise will deduct a single point in the overall results. In this regard, you have to focus on accuracy and speed at the same time in order to keep your CPM (characters per minute) high.
