@gijo_varghese Do you plan to add any other language-based layout like Turkish QWERTY?

@gijo_varghese. Enjoyed playing with it. My typing speed is ~194 Words-per-Minute. Your bar has a range of 0-100 WPM. I think typing-bolt can improve everyone, but it makes me think that I'm out of the game :)

@aminadavg Never thought there are much people beyond 100wpm! I'll surely fix it

@gijo_varghese @aminadavg My mother was like greased lightning on an IBM Selectric (as a matter of fact, I'm going to send this to her.. she'll love it)... sounded like a machine gun.. and she was 98 wpm with only two errors. She was a paid, professional typist back when that was a thing. I can't imagine how fast fingers would need to move to hit 194 wpm. Yikes!

I'm not sure how accurate the typing speed thing is... I've used 10fastfingers.com for a while, and have never gone about 88WPM. When I first tried Typing Bolt though it said I typed at over 200WPM.

@gijo_varghese @ninjinka ... at that speed, liability insurance is a must. ;-)

@cleavatron Thanks. Let me know your suggestions and feedback

@gijo_varghese I totally suck at touch typing. Dunno if this is a farfetched suggestion but it would be a cool delighter to incorporate the webcam to detect if the user glances the keyboard too much. Of course, this is only for those who wants it. I would love this feature just so that I keep score on how many times I cheated myself.

@cleavatron I too have thought about it! But many users don't have a webcam. That's why I haven't implemented it. Anway I'll look into it. Maybe I'll add it set it to 'off' by default. Thanks for the suggestion
