What is the audio typing test?
Use our audio typing accuracy test to ensure you find candidates who are able to transcribe a recording quickly and correctly. This test will exercise a candidate’s typing speed as well as the accuracy and skill with which they transcribe the audio provided. Audio typing skills are key to many jobs, and by using our test, you can guarantee that your company will select only the candidates who are equipped to the task of audio typing with speed and accuracy.
Our typing test works to test an individual’s audio typing skills; that is, their ability to transcribe from an audio and type with speed. The test measures their words per minute and the general accuracy with which they type. Here’s how the typing test works:
Candidates are presented with 1 question to type on a keyboard in 5 minutes. The average completion time to type the audio is 5 minutes, because the test is designed to have more words than a candidate can type in the allocated time.
The candidate’s responses are automatically marked, and any error when typing will result in no point being rewarded for the whole word containing the error. The test measures a candidate’s typing proficiency by finding out their WPM (words per minute), which is their typing speed, and identifying the average correct words.
The typing test is designed to measure speed, listening, accuracy and transcribing competency.
