Hi, it's my first post here.
I'm a 13 year old who recently found out about Colemak, and here were my QWERTY speeds:
Computer - 85 wpm average, 110 wpm top (Typeracer)
5" smartphone - 40 wpm average, 55 wpm top because of errors (The Typist app)
I first saw Colemak when I was looking at an alternative keyboard layout in Fleksy because of my slow mobile typing speeds. As I could not learn Dvorak for some reason, I decided to give Colemak a try because it was QWERTY-like.
It's been great so far on my phone but it's basically semi-hunt and peck for some characters.
I did a measly 13-17 wpm on the first day but I am now at 31wpm with Test A. This seems to be very good as I am still using QWERTY on my PC, but I have a question, how long did it take for you to reach ~70-80wpm? I may switch the layout on my PC if I have some free time to learn how to type Colemak fast, but I still need to be able to type reasonably fast in IT class, where we are not allowed to download exe files to convert the keyboard layout. Will switching to Colemak affect my ability to type QWERTY quickly?
