A GUI based application that calculates your typing speed
Table of Contents
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.
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
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.
- Warmup : A random stream of short and long words that help you warm up your fingers.
- Easy : Short words that help you practice typing.
- Hard : Expertise level, Long and difficult words.
Now, just click on start and follow the instructions shown in the application.
