I work in a state high court as a secretary...and my colleagues do say I'm fast in typing (although, I don't think I'm fast.)

Some hours ago, a colleague of mine called that he has a job offer for me, that he needs someone that is "super" fast in typing, that a doctor intends travelling and he wants someone to type for him. The thing is, he will be interviewed and I'm expected to type everything he says; word for word.

He says many people recommended me to him, but to be sincere, I doubt I can be that fast.

He asked my current location, and I told him Lagos (I left Imo last week), he said he will pay my t.fare to Imo this night so I can come down tomorrow.

Please I need experts in this field advise. I'm planning on recording his conversation while I type the ones I can grab as he is talking...that way I'll re-edit with the recorded version.

Try and get/download mavin beacons

During the interview, simultaneously type on your pc and also record the interview audio with your phone. It makes it easier to go over the interview conversation and make corrections after the interview.

The solution to ur problem is in ur last paragraph bro. Go with a better mini voice recorder if u can, the one enough memory to accommodate the length of Interview, and edit later using the recorder. My advice be say no use phone o.........person fit go call ur line, ur phone fit off unknown to u self.....sha play safe bro, u will surely SUCCEED

The best thing to do is to record the conversation and then type later.

It's practically impossible to type another man's speech unless he's dictating. This was the reason shorthand was invented in the first place.

It was later abolished when recorders became a thing.

Just go for the interview as you are, try to get a recorder (your phone).
God bless you abundantly. I was thinking along same line.
Who types speech when such can be recorded and even be more accurate and timely.

I can type 10 pages under an hour.

That's not an efficient way of measuring it.

Use your PC, go to Google and search typing test.

Click on any of the links and take a quick typing test. It's just a minute long so it won't take your time.

Come back and lemme know the average typing speed you got.
Re: How Can I Type Fast For This Job? Please Help! by Icetech: 1:55pm On May 04
Why not do a rehearsal by inviting a close friend to speak while you type.

By so doing, you can grade your performance and know if you can execute the job.

Shalom!

Hmmm, typing speed that year. For someone who types in a courtroom, everyday, it shouldn’t be less than 74., with an accuracy not lesser than 84%

Those who know you believe you can and I believe you can do it too. All you need to do is be focus and don't start with the speed as the expect you. Start a little slow, like you are going to disappoint them and gradually take it to the best of your ability. Starting slow is a way to keep the interviewer and the person being interviewed in check. Definitely one of them will be with you and is watching you.

I believe you can do this, don't be nervous because it will it will make your fingers wet, then try and get someone that can be dictating for you while you type, recording means a double work, keep practicing, good luck

Use speech to text function on your Android phone. It types each words without punctuation, so U edit it later. But make sure the phone is close to his mouth.

Re: How Can I Type Fast For This Job? Please Help! by myked(m): 4:26pm On May 04
I wish you luck, do your best. Ask if you can type in shorthand and edit later because you can't increase your typing speed overnight. If you get the job and wish to improve your speed, use keybr.com. Forget Mavis Beacon.

If you don't get the job and wanna recommend someone else, please inform me. I'm very fast because typing is my hobby, I travel with my keyboard. I hit speeds of 60 wpm with lots of capital letters and punctuation. On only small letters I will hit 75-85 wpm. I can prove this on a video call.
Best wishes...
