Transcribing Speed Practice from the September 1954 issue of Today’s Secretary. 504 words.
The material below is the same as the C.T. [Competent Typist] Test across the page, and it is provided so that you can test and compare your speeds of typing from print and from shorthand. Compute your rate on this word-counted material in the same way you do when typing the C.T.
Page 44 is the typed material (Competent Typist Test); page 45 is the transcribing practice, which can also be used as reading material.
I’ve also included an OCR’ed version of the Competent Typist Test.
