Entries Submitted Outside Competition

Entries using Octave were submitted outside competition by employees of e-acute, the company producing Octave. While they are not strictly comparable to the other methods - as they use a mild form of Word Completion - they too demonstrate an impressive speed that cannot be achieved by any method based on handwriting:

Octave Entries

Rank Method Time WPM  Participant Date
-- Octave 33.38 s  71.89 wpm  Tim Scanlan  July 18, 2000
-- Octave 34.17 s  70.23 wpm  Eric Mathieu  July 13, 2000

The Organizers Themselves

As organizers, we are obviously outside competition, but since you asked:

Rank Method Time WPM  Participant Date

-- FitalyStamp 52.48 s  45.48 wpm  Hannes Frischat  July 18, 2000

Clearly, neither of us is able to write that fast, and at least one of us cannot type as fast on a full PC keyboard!
