Last night I was talking with one of my friends on Skype and she just sent me a couple of messages instantly. I checked it and she sent me 2 messages in the same second and it was 56 characters. She typed 56 characters in just one second, according Skype.

Now I ask to you guys: Is it even possible?

How much characters can someone type in one second?

Hi,

No, it is simply not possible.
Even the fastest typists for sprint - Sean WRONA & Guilherme SANDRINI - they almost never reach the speed of 1500 CPM (1500 characters per minute), i.e. 25 characters per second, even on mastered & repeated short texts.

So, 25 characters per second is the speed that world-class typists achieve when they completely master a specific short text.
Therefore, typing 56 characters in one second is definitely not possible. In two seconds, it is... but it means that the person is one of the best typists of the world Wink

The conclusion is that Skype's timestamps aren't that reliable, maybe for lag reason, or something else.
