The Typing Core project was created with the goal of providing a nice, simple and clean place for typing practice. A place where everyone can quickly and easily test their typing speed online without distractions. A place where people can practice and improve their typing skills for free.
This project has been managed by a team of one person (me) so far. Who am I? Well, my name is Diego and I am a web developer. I love to type and one of my goals is to improve people's lives through web projects.
I used to go to a specific website to practice typing. One day, as usual, I opened the same website to practice my typing speed, but it was full of ads. Some ads had animations and were displayed during typing practices. All of that was really distracting. So I decided to search for other typing sites.
I went to many websites and many of them didn't provide a natural typing experience. For example, if you made a mistake, you couldn't keep typing if the mistake wasn't fixed. In other cases you could not correct previous words, or it was difficult to keep track of the next character to be typed.
Later I found some good typing websites. But none of them had the simplicity I wanted and the information I needed in the typing test results. It was then that I decided to create a website to provide people with the experience I could not find when I was looking for typing sites.
That's how the Typing Core project came about, with a simple interface, without ads during the typing tests and with complete information in the typing test results.
To make it even easier for users to experience the Typing Core typing tests, we chose different colors to show the results of the tests to indicate how well they performed in each aspect of typing. This way, the user, through the colors, will be able to quickly know if their performance was good or not.
We also developed texts about curiosities on various subjects for the text-based typing tests. This way, while you practice, you also learn about different and interesting topics.
We know that some people are preparing for the typing test required in the exam for certain professions and that they prefer to practice with texts that are more similar to those they will find in the exam.
For this reason, we have created an option for you to upload any text you wish to practice with. Just choose the "Custom" option on the "Test" page, paste your text and click the "Start test" button. The test will start and upon completion you will have complete statistics about your performance in typing that same text.
We also know that some tests for certain professions use different weights to calculate final typing speed. Incorrect characters, for example, can be given a higher weight in tests for some professions. With this in mind, we have included in the typing test results all necessary variables in case you need to perform a different typing speed calculation than the one provided by default.
We created this site to be fully responsive, meaning that it adapts to the size of the most varied devices. This way, everyone can benefit from this project, regardless of the device they are using. This means that you can also use our site to practice or test your typing speed on any smartphone, tablet or computer.
