Typing Speed Research: How to save 19 days per year while typing

In 2013, we created Ratatype to help everyone improve their touch typing skills. Nowadays more than 600,000 people visit our website every single month and that number got us wondering: how has learning to touch type changed their lives and what do they get from using our typing tutor? To satisfy our curiosity, we conducted a typing speed study.

We have analyzed activity of 350,000 Ratatype users and found out that practice is the main thing that speeds up your typing. By comparing certification results and the amount of completed lessons we found out that the more lessons you take the better is your typing speed. Of course, if your keyboard works correctly and all keys are pressed as they should.
