    I'll bet you're really good with video games too.

    Thanks, guys!

    The time is in the description below the photo. For sighted it is 20.53s; for blindfolded it is 25.90s. Incidentally, my blindfolded time is better than the previous sighted record (25.94s).

    Actually, I'm not a gamer! I wasted too much time in my youth playing Ultima II (anybody remember that?) that I decided I wouldn't play another video game.

    Magnus, there are certain rules one needs to follow, and I can't tell from the video whether Keymonk does. I'm curious why Keymonk didn't submit their evidence (or maybe they did?). If I break some of the rules, I can do it sighted in under 10 seconds.

    Unfortunately, I can't talk about any of the details or share a video. My employer wouldn't be too happy.

    Best regards,

    Mark

    because he was swyping not typing.. if you are not familiar with swype , it is a keyboard option on some android phones.. you do not lift your fingers from the keyboard but move them across from /to the letters you want the chip does the rest. if you go back to the video, at one point, you will see 'tracers' that mark the route of his fingers. I accidentally enabled swype once [insert I am dumber than my smartphone icon here]

    That's pretty cool, Mark! I always get a kick out of sending things to Microsoft. It just seems different, I guess.

    I hardly use my computer. Basically, my entire forum experience is on my phone.
