This website called TypeRacer is one I've used to significantly increase my typing speed. It basically tracks your typing speed in a game format but requires you to type perfectly to advance. Rather, not my speed, but my accuracy. Once you get around 80-100wpm you start needing to be precise and perfect, the first time, to avoid all mistakes. It's hard to ...


My answer, although a guess, is NO. You are already typing at remarkable speed (and you should be teaching us how to do it*). I don't know how much faster is possible but I would wonder how much time learning a new keyboard would ever be repaid in increased productivity. I personally get concerned with getting too familiar with non-standard settings, ...


With such a typing speed, what is now your bottleneck? Do you find yourself waiting on your fingers to progress in your work? If yes, keep improving. If no, start researching on how to improve your other points.


This question is similar to another I answered about DVORAK so I'll link to my response there and add some more information. From my experience DVORAK is not about speed as much as it is about comfort especially if you already type with QWERTY and if you need to switch between the two layouts often. My speed on DVORAK is only slightly faster than it was on ...


No, it is not. I've been typing Dvorak since 2000, and before switching I typed 70-90 wpm. Now I type 70-90 wpm. Switching was extraordinarily frustrating at first, and didn't bring any tangible benefits other than geek cred. My QWERTY typing suffered immediately, and while I can switch back and forth now and get up to reasonable speeds after 10 minutes, I ...


I learned to touch type long enough ago that the device I learned on had a lever you pushed with the left hand to accomplish a carriage return. (i.e. manual typewriter). The finger map layout I learned and still use today (at 110wpm on a good day) is your second image. It isn't a new development. I don't believe there are any ergonomic benefits to EDX. ...


Thanks to Syd Kerckhove's answer (which also contains very useful extensions), I found Firemacs (http://www.mew.org/~kazu/proj/firemacs/en/) , a Firefox Plugin which directly creates Emacs-like shortcuts in Firefox.


I built this thing for myself in Python, and I like it better than anything I found online: from time import time def training(): test = 'ap, a[, a], a}, a{' # modify to whatever you want to practice print "Enter : {}".format(test) start = time() result = raw_input("Enter : ") if test == result: print 'Your time : ...


Try Vimium, Vimperator or Pentadactyl They even use vim shortcuts.
