New English and International Texts – Apr. 2019

Posted on April 14, 2019. Filed under: TypeRacer News, Universes |

Chat with other typists on the TypeRacer Discord chat!

Over the past couple weeks we activated a bunch of new content on TypeRacer. In English, there’s a total of ~250 new user-submitted English quotes, bringing the total number of English quotes in the main “play” universe up to 5,900. A special thanks goes to Styro (styrofoam – TRData) and JGG (jgg_im_bad – TRData) for reviewing hundreds of user-submitted quotes here, as well as Pentalon (pentalonTRData) for curating a list of high quality content activated last week.

If you see your name at the bottom of this post, at least one quote you’ve contributed is now active, and the user-submitted quotes spreadsheet above will help you see which of your submissions were accepted.

TypeRacer International also continues to move forward. We recently added:

Corrections to texts (typographical errors, non-typeable characters) have been implemented across a variety of languages, based on user feedback. See a problem? Email support [at] typeracer.com, or head to our Discord. We read 100% of messages shared in the #feedback channel, and also have #new-text-discussion channel dedicated to discussion around new content in any language.

As always, we hope you enjoy the new content, and we encourage everyone to click the Contribute link at the bottom of the main TypeRacer page to submit the content you want to type on TypeRacer (in any language). As a reminder, only complete submissions can be considered (including a valid ISBN-10 or ASIN number for all English content). Typos and formatting issues will generally result in your submission being denied.

Thanks to everyone who contributed! See you on the racetrack.

David (valikor – TRData)

This website sucks. When you try to type anything with a ‘ then it’s always wrong. Even though it’s completely correct. Fix this. And I also find it very confusing if you are typing one letter and in the passage it shows that you are typing a different letter. It is one digit behind. Please fix this. Overall this website is not that good I give it two stars. 😦

This is usually caused by browser settings which automatically turn “normal” punctuation marks into “pretty” ones. Users on iPads, for example, often complain about this, and it can be solved using the instructions here: https://www.howtogeek.com/344310/how-to-turn-off-smart-punctuation-on-your-iphone-and-ipad/

What about some texts in Polish, or other Slavic languages requiring skills in Cyrillic layout of the keyboard? Some people could compare their skills in both QWERTY and Cyrillic mode.
