Hyderabad: An MTech student from Old City has made into the Guinness Book of World Records for ‘fastest typing on keyboard’.
Shaik Ashraf, 23, a resident of Madina Colony in Falaknuma, managed to create a record in two categories after several failed attempts.
The record ‘fastest time to type the alphabets from A to Z with spaces was achieved in 3.37 seconds, while the other ‘fastest time to type the alphabets blindfolded from A to Z with spaces was done in 4.13 seconds’.
"I recorded the feats ona camera and sent videos to the Guinness World Records headquarters. After studying and verifying the videos, I was awarded the recognition," Shaik Ashraf said. His initial attempt in May last year was rejected as he did not submit videos according to the specifications laid down.
Ashraf now has three Guinness records to his credit. In 2015, he got it for the fastest time to type 1 to 50 is 14.88 seconds. He still holds the records
