I applied for one of those several years ago. They gave me a typing test, which consisted of typing material that was presented on the screen!

Ever try to do that? With tri-focal eyeglasses? Moving my head up and down, between "reading" position and "typing" position, gave me a score of maybe 10 wpm.

Right now my major impediment to typing speed is a keyboard that is not good at recognizing the shift keys. A fast typist can get ahead of the keyboard and lose initial caps. Time for one of those better keyboards!
