Typing Speed Test is a practice typing game that trains concentration and visual attention. Your accuracy (percent) and typing speed (words-per-minute, WPM) are shown after you type the displayed paragraph. For example, just now I typed 87 WPM with 98% accuracy. Not too bad!
To begin, click the Medium button under the picture of the game. This opens the game in a pop-up window.
Note: The instructions below are for Typing Tidepool, the old Adobe Flash game.
HOW TO PLAY. Ride your dolphin in a race against other competitors. Type the red letters in the box at the top of the game.
Typing the word correctly makes your dolphin swim faster. If you type the word wrong, your dolphin slows down.
Note: One letter typed incorrectly makes you lose the word. That means typos really hurt you in this game, so type accurately as well as quickly.
That's just what you want in a practice typing game. It not only helps you become a faster typist, you also learn to make fewer mistakes.
Your dolphin is the one with the upside-down triangle above it. As you complete each word, your dolphin moves forward and the points for that word appear in the Score box.
You don't need to press Enter after each word, just start typing the next word when it appears.
For the most points, type several words in a row correctly. This is called a "combo" which diplays in the Combo box in the upper right.
OPTIONS. This typing game doesn't have any controllable options that I could find. There isn't any way to turn off the sound in-game for example.
Typing Tidepool provides 20 levels of typing practice. At lower levels the words are shorter and your competitors are slower.
As you complete each level, your typing speed for completing that level displays under the appropriate column. For example, if you finished Round 1 of the 400 meter relay in 41.92 seconds, "00:41:92" shows in that column.
I enjoy brain games like this typing game that not only train your brain but are fun and visually appealing. It makes brain training less of a chore and more like entertainment.
