The fastest typists can enter well over 150 words per minute. Many
jobs require keyboard speeds of 60-70 words per minute. However,
when actual typing speeds are collected for people that use computers,
they are much slower. In one study the typing rates for simple
transcription averaged only 33 words per minute, and for composition
the average was only 19 words per minute (Karat, Halverson, Horn,
and Karat, 1999).

In this same study, participants were divided into three groups
according to their typing skills. The fastest typists averaged only 40
words per minute, those that had ?moderate? speed averaged 35
words per minute, and those that were considered ?slow? typed at
23 words per minute.

Two-finger typists can key memorized text at about 37 words per
minute, and copy from one form to another at about 27 words per
minute (Brown, 1988).
