I cannot write as fast as listening (tough i recognize all characters) so i hear the sample several times, always scoring 90% or plus. Should I always check the first attempt?

Hi Ulises,

maybe you should decrease the effective speed a little bit, so you still have the characters at a high speed, but the pauses are a little longer.

If all you need the pauses for is to find the right keys on the keyboard, it shouldn't hurt. But be careful that you don't depend on the long pauses to "re-listen" the character in your mind, or even to count dots and dashes, to recognize it. The ultimate goal is that you instantly recognize the letter.
