Many people see their typing speed in the results and start asking themselves if that typing speed is fast or not. Thinking about this, we decided to put the answer to this question in the typing test results using colors. Red for slow, orange for average, green for fast and blue for very fast. The colors are also used to show other parameters such as accuracy and mistakes.
