Fingerjig

Fingerjig is a 6 minute typing game that tests your typing ability. Words are randomly chosen from a dictionary of over 70,000. You must try to type the words as quickly and accurately as you can!

You probably need to install Flash!

Typing Tips

  • Typing fast will rack up points but keep an eye on how many mistakes you’re making.
  • Try to improve your net words per minute by making fewer typing mistakes – experiment with typing a bit slower.
  • Touch typing is much faster than hunting and pecking!
  • Taking a moment to read each word can help reduce typing mistakes.
  • Say each letter in your head as you type it to improve your accuracy for long words.
  • Use a keyboard you feel comfortable with. I particularly like the Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000.
  • Practise! You may also find that since the words are picked randomly some selections will suit you better than others.
  • Remember to take a break now and then to avoid repetitive strain injury.

    This game is okay. Better than some typing games, but really if I wasn’t just trying to up my typing score no way I would choose to play it. It’s kind of boring and the graphics and things: I could make just as good a game with very little trouble. But over all its okay.
