    I agree that it can be considered a computer skill, but at a low level. If this is for a résumé, the decision to mention it would depend on the level of the jobs you want. Fast (and accurate!) typing is important for some jobs. For higher-level jobs, knowing what to type is more important than how quickly you type it. Your knowledge of Excel, of accounting, of SAP, or of Ruby is then more important. In that case, I wouldn't mention typing.

    Thank you for your detailed reply. Yes, this is for a resumé and I think I should ignor it.
