How to test Typing Speed using Python?
Prerequisites: Python GUI – tkinter
In this article, we will create a program test the typing speed of the user with a basic GUI application using Python language. Here the Python libraries like Tkinter and Timeit are used for the GUI and Calculation of time for speed testing respectively. Also, the Random function is used to fetch the random words for the speed testing calculation. Following command is used to install the above-mentioned libraries:
pip install tkintertable pip install pytest-timeit
Firstly, all the libraries are imported that are installed as mentioned above, and using the bottom-up approach the programming for testing the typing speed using python is created.
Below is the implementation.
In the above code, we first create the speed testing window using Tkinter. The function is defined for calculating and printing the correct output after the user input. A specific list of words is provided to the user to type and test the speed of typing. For that, we provide a list of words and generate them with the random function.
