My goal is to make this site as user friendly as possible. I love to read and respond to your emails from the contact us page, and I want to start posting some of the most frequently asked questions here.
Question: Is there an instruction manual?
Answer: Check out our new Getting Started Guide
Question: How do the tests work?
- Click a test type to start (type it, memorize it, or master it) Note: 'Type it' is not actually a test, but this is where you get familiar with a verse and your average typing speed is calculated.
- Type out the entire verse including the reference. You can turn off the option to type the reference from your User Profile page. Mistakes don't count against you, but you must type every word correctly before proceeding. This includes capitalization and punctuation.
- Once you finish it will automatically jump to a screen that tells you your results. The test will not end until you type the last character of the verse, which could be a period, question mark, quotation mark, etc...
- If you typed the verse at a speed of 80% of your average typing speed, then it will give you a red check indicating that you have memorized the verse. (this only goes for the memorize it & master it steps) If you type in your own verses, be sure everything is spelled and punctuated correctly. The tests require you to type the verse exactly as you entered it.
Question: I forgot my password! What do I do?
Answer: We now have a password recovery feature right on the login form. Just click I Forgot It! and enter your email address. We'll send a new password to your email address. The password will be pretty cryptic, so be sure to change it to something more memorable from your profile page once you get signed in.
Question: I'd like to get my kids on Scripture Typer but they don't have e-mail
Answer: For your kids, I recommend setting up a free e-mail account for each of them that you maintain control of (i.e. don't give them the password). Use that e-mail account to create a scripturetyper account which they can have the password to. GMail is probably the easiest place to set up an account. Here's a direct link:
