Ninja Typing Speed


Ever wanted to know how Japanese live TV shows get their subtitles so quickly?

This video below shows a female in Tokyo who works as a typist, by typing subtitles in real time while the show’s on live.



It’s really amazing how fast and yet even surprisingly accurate these typists can be. The keyboard that they use really blew me into bits! Throw in some combos with the tiny keyboard and you get a whole sentence. And somehow the action of that reminds me of them playing the piano ^^;

  1. The system sorta reminds me of journalist scribes. Because journalist have to take notes etc, they scribe down what people sale which is a lot faster than writing it word for word.
