Exercise  

 

 

Compare the time it takes you to type and dictate the following text (no need to translate it!).

  1. Download the MS Word file (150 words in English).

  2. Type the text in the right-hand column using your keyboard and mouse. Time yourself.

  3. Dictate your text out loud at normal speed. Try to speak with the speed and voice of a radio announcer. Time yourself. Now, compare with the time taken to type your text.

 

Food for thought

  1. What’s the difference between the time taken to type and dictate the text?

  2. Do typing speed and accuracy impact results?

  3. Does your keyboard affect your performance, creativity and professional well-being?
