About World Typing Day
Typing Day takes place on January 8th. It was first celebrated in 2011 in commemoration of the Malaysian Speed Typing Contest 2011, which broke two records in the Malaysian Book of Records (MBR) i.e. the Fastest Typist and the Largest Participation for a Typing Event.
The day aims to encourage people to express themselves via written communication. It is co-organized by the STC (Speed Typing Contest) Team from JCI (Junior Chamber International) Mines and Team TAC (Typo Auto Corrector).
There’s nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.
Typing Day is held on January 8th every year as one week after New Year is a good time to think through and write down plans for the year.
The world record for typing the English alphabet from A to Z is 1.36 seconds.
