Practice Typer - Learn and practice how to type!

Intro

Have you ever wanted to learn how to type? Or, have you ever wanted to help improve your practice skills and quit bad typing habits? Well, this repl has both! This is a game that I made, and it helps you learn how to type, both physically and competitively. Read the guide below, and start typing!

Help Guide

This game helps you type! The limit is 2 minutes (120 seconds). You should see a green timer that slowly ticks more and more until it reaches zero! Below that, you should see the word. Try to type it! Note that if you flunk, your next character target will be the first character of the word (all over again...). If you successfully type the word with no errors, then it will switch to a new word, and continue typing! Also, the timer has a warning for you. If the time is 30 seconds or less, it'll start flashing red. There is a leaderboard, and at the end, it will display your skills and the high score. Hopefully, this guide helps you, and good luck and have fun typing!

Improving Your Typing

Below, I have a few suggestions to help you with your typing.

  • Looking at the keyboard while typing (your hands should remain in your typing posture the whole time and get a idea of where the key is, then press it)
  • Poor posture (this is kind of directed on the first one)
  • Typing with incorrect fingering (this is a huge problem; if you type with the incorrect finger, your posture would be incorrect, then it would lead to a mis-type of lots of other characters too)
  • Focusing on speed at the expense of accuracy (this one is also quite important)
  • Stiff hand positioning (try to get your hands to move more freely, not just move your hand like a lump)
