WPM is the standard unit of measurement used to measure typing speed. A WPM of 60 or more is considered fast. Typically, WPM speeds are much lower on portable devices, such as smartphones and tablets, than on traditional PCs.

Example "I have been typing so many papers, I think my WPM is now over 70!"
