Wikipedia notes, “An average professional typist types usually in speeds of 43 to 80 wpm, while some positions can require 80 to 95 (usually the minimum required for dispatch positions and other time-sensitive typing jobs), and some advanced typists work at speeds above 120 wpm.” I recall that, in the 1980s, at least 60 or 70 words per minute was the minimum requirement. What is your recollection?
