Are you referring to transcription or data entry work?

You should know how to type at minimum 60 words per minute to make decent money in data entry. In transcription usually a speed of 75 or higher is required. The faster you type the more money you can make really in either arena.

Hope that helps.

I only do 40 wpm. How are your links working for you?

40 wpm isn't a bad start. If you transcribe at least 30 minutes a day, you'll have upped that speed to 60 and above within a short time, I'd say two to three weeks.
