Speedtest Redesign: Overview

If you want to read all Speedtest Redesign related articles, check out this list:

Here are a few screenshots from the previous speedtest which was live from around 2007-2011 and which got replaced by the new Typing Speed Test.


The functionality of the previous version was quiet simple:

  • you could type for one minute using the 100-200 most frequent used words of your language
  • at the end you got your result, if you wanted to save it you had to take a screenshot (which a lot of people did and even posting there screenshot on forums etc.)
  • you also got a badge with your WPM count (which wasn’t accurate because I didn’t use the correct WPM-calculation back then)
  • the ranking list was reseted at the start of the month
  • cheating was quiet easy
  • lots of other stuff which got improved by now

    Hey!
    Thanks for putting this site together, I have been trying to improve my Japanese typing skills and it's been a great test of my kanji knowledge! I went on today after a little break and I can input the first word but after that I can't write anything in the box, even if I type the correct answer into the box nothing shows and the kanji goes red – is anyone else having similar problems?
    Thanks again for the site!

    Just a small bug I noticed, it instantly goes to 59 seconds and stays there the first 2 seconds.

    Excellent website. And one tip from me. You should give the statistics for each language separately. For example, I write 80 wpm on average for English but for Russian it is 15, and they appear on the same graphics which is not very good :)
