Full Answer

If an applicant has a greater KPH speed, such as 12,000 to 15,000 KPH, the accuracy requirement may be lower, from 97 to 98 percent. For a data entry job, one should try to get one's KPH up around 15,000 in order to qualify for the majority of positions available. Always check to see what the employer's other requirements are in addition to minimum KPH before applying for a position.
