Test your typing skills!

TyperA is a Java program that tests your typing speed. You get randomly chosen words or sentences and try to type them as fast as possible. A game lasts for one or two minutes. The program counts letters of the correctly typed words and divides it by the test time. This will be your score, expressed in KPM, keystrokes per minute. TyperA was originally developed in 1999 on an Amiga 1200 running LinuxPPC and hosted on a Linux server. However, it is no longer actively developed.
