I'm having trouble finding a typing speed test that lets me just type what I want - iow, the typical typing most people do.
I have this site:
It comes close, but the problem is that you have to click a "play" button to start (if you don't see it, go into options to select "speed" to appear and then click it on the menu to get the play option to appear), which means moving from the mouse to the keyboard while the timer is already running (much better if it simply started counting the time when you first type a key. Or at least give a countdown so you have time to get your hands ready.
And when you are done, you click the same button (which is now a "pause" symbol) - do NOT hit the "stop" icon because that zeros out your figures - so that throws off the accuracy too as you switch to the mouse.
You can watch a running display of your wpm, but you'll probably want to pause it so you can look for errors.
So, basically I'm looking for something like at the link, but with a way start the timer without losing time and, ideally, a way to stop it without using the mouse. Could be some key combo or it could just note when your last letter was typed.
