on systems, software & life


QuickKeys is a casual typing-speed tester. It lets you test your typing speed over a set of different phrases and records them as highscores. I hacked this up when my internet connection was down back during the dial-up modem days :)

QuickKeys measures your typing speed over a chosen phrase/sentence from a pre-defined list of then. After you type the phrase correctly, you are shown the time taken and your typing speed expressed in characters per second. An average speed of about 6-10 characters per second is probably good.

QuickKeys is closed source software. However, I’ll probably release them some day under an appropriate license.
