How does Word Flow measure my Words Per Minute (WPM)?

Word Flow keeps track of the number of words entered and how long you take to enter each word. It also keep track of how long you spend editing and correcting words you’ve already entered, whether by re-entering them or by selecting corrections suggested by Word Flow.

So, for example, if you enter 15 words in 60 seconds and spend an additional 30 seconds correcting them this will give you a speed of 10 WPM (15 words / 1.5 minutes total).

Your WPM will improve over time as Word Flow learns your words, and you learn Word Flow. Therefore, Word Flow puts more weight on your more recent WPM, rather than average your WPM across your entire time using the keyboard. Hopefully, this helps you see your typing improvements as you go.
