Motivation

The main objective of this project was to create a simple and easy to use application that would calculate typing speed. This would enable users to increase their typing skills and also monitor their progress.

Most typing tests are online and the ones that are downloadable(offline) are usually just malware. And so, I set out to build my own typing speed test.

Usage

Installing and using this application is quite straightforward.

For the latest Stable version, go to Releases

Extract the files and run Typing-Speed-Test.py file present in the src folder.

As an alternative, you could also clone the repository using.

git clone https://github.com/SVijayB/Typing-Speed-Test.git

Note : Typing-Speed-Test uses custom fonts. Most windows computers have them preinstalled. However, if you don’t, just open the Fonts folder present in assets and launch the Agency-FB.ttf and the Algerian Regular.ttf files and press install.

Once you launch the Typing-Speed-Test.py file, just select one of the three modes.

Now, just click on start and follow the instructions shown in the application.
