Not sure how well the free programs are but while I did take a class at 12 with Mavis it was IMing that taught me to type as well as I do.

I just got 83wpm.  I have no idea if that's good compared to other DDers but they claim it beats 91.4% of users on their website.

Also, I found myself wrongly anticipating the next word in the sequence sometimes and that caused errors... like I had "said to each" and the next word was something random, so I started typing "other" probably because I was subconsciously finishing the sentence.  But even with that I'm sure the effect on my score was minimal.

Are these sites providing it free with the permission of the owner/creator?  Or against their wishes?

That's kind of impressive for 3 fingers, but you really ought to learn to type.

Yeah I type mostly the "correct" way but I use my middle finger or pinky for some of the keys you're "supposed" to use your ring finger on.  If I'm losing speed because of it, it's clearly not much, so I don't care to fix it.

The counter isn't accurate because it doens't require you to hit the spacebar.
