    Try to type "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" correcting every slip up within the 1 minute as fast as you can.

    I got 60 words per minute (1 word per second). Not sure if it's slow, fast or moderate.

    Your phone or your watch. Finish your last word as soon as it it hits the 1 minute
