This is a tool to improve your typing speed on arbitrary text input:
* designed for intermediate to advanced level typists
* assumes that you have already learned how to touch type
* no lessons, no single words, no synthetic stuff
* tab expansion, auto indentation and syntax support to train on code
* reference speed robot (defaults to 100 WPM)
* supports CPS, CPM, WPM, PPM, and CPH/KPH metrics
* shows detailed statistics about speed and typos
* helps to find and eliminate frequent typos
Speedpad uses fortune(6) to generate quotes if no input is provided. It
dumps statistics to standard output in machine-readable format. This can
be used to visualize your progress using tools like gnuplot(1).
If you want to learn touch typing, have a look at gtypist(1) instead. If
you want to play typing games, have a look at tuxtype(1) and typespeed(1).
