Hi there as the title suggests i have been typing for now 8 hours on keybr and i just can't get past the letter R and T as soon as my confidence level goes up to 0.98 in the next turn it would fall back down to 0.92 or 0.94 and then i have to grind again for 15 mins to get it back up to 0.98 or 0.99 and back to the same cycle. What should i do i don't look at the keyboard at all when typing as someone suggested me that a while back. I have tried to be as accurate as possible but to no avail. Have you guys faced that problem and what should i do to improve, i am using a standard keyboard with otg cable and typing on my phone as i don't own a laptop or a pc. Thank you .

I guess that maybe you can extend the alphabet size manually in the settings.
Hope that helps.

Thank you for the reply, and i have been trying to ad new letters from the settings but after three or four rounds it reverts back to T and R

What is your typing speed? I heard the threshold for progression was 30-40 wpm

The threshold is 35wpm/175cpm but for each key, meaning the average time between keystrokes should be less than 343ms. You can easily take halve a second and more for an unaccustomed key--say "A", because it's on the left hand and you're right handed and because it's on the pinkie and not on the stronger fingers--but 0.3s and better for the keys you're familliar with, outpacing 40wpm/200cpm. The solution is to ONLY focus on accuracy, be patient and hope for the best.

Set sample length to the shortest possible and skip samples (ctrl+right) if you find yourself making too much errors because you're not focused. Once you manage to type the smaller samples with 0 errors reliably, increase length.

Manually increasing alphabet size is also an option, but I found this to reduce my accuracy and then my speed quickly as it made keys I already knew quite well perform worse just because they were on the same finger as a new key (btw I'm using neo2, "L" made "A" worse because these are both on the left middle finger).

I had the exact same issue, It think its because of "r" & "t" are most used letters. But after prolonged struggle, I passed it. But something to note over here is that, as you move on to other keys, your confidence level of "r" and "t" may drop drastically! so be prepared, good luck!

Try creating another account or going in incognito mode, it should be easy to rush thorugh the previous keys/
