    When you get the hang of its averagely quick, but don't expect to type as fast as you do on a keyboard.

    It depends on your hand/eye coordination (cross eyed may be problem)

    It's slow, even when you get used to it. Not very useful for forums like this, but if you're only typing a few things it's not bad. Though to be fair, without a keyboard you shouldn't expect it to be very fast.

    Here's some screenshots of the virtual keyboard to give you an idea what its like to type on the Wii with the wiimote.

    The dictionary feature can help you speed up your typing by giving you word suggestions in the textbox just above the number keys as well as auto filling the rest of the letters the Wii best guesses you're about to type. Don't worry, if you're still typing when it auto fills letters, it will type over those letters.

    Punctuations and symbols can slow your typing down a bit.

    This way of typing may be quicker for you if you're used to it. I doesn't require you to move the wiimote cursor far when going from one letter to another.

    lol, guess that'd make playing games like Red Steel a bit hard, eh?

    It's easy to type. I prefer the phone keypad method... and the predictive text thing is okay, but i don't bother with it.

    Before commenting on other peoples spelling maybe you should check your own. Learn how to start a sentence with a capital letter and I believe can't has an apostrophe.

    Maybe you should check you own spelling before making fun of people who are actually here to discuss on topic matters such as what this thread actually is about. You have no right to criticize unless you can do it yourself

    People should have the right to say what they want and take part in discussion without having to know FULL English. If it is clear exactly what they mean there is no problem so there is no need to comment as i'm sure we all make mistakes from time to time and would rather not have people comment on them so SHUT UP.

    And it is not "FULL English" we desire but "PROPER English."

    This is true.

    When did this become an english class? We are on an interenet forum about the wii, not writing a college essay. As long as it is understandable and doesn't look like it was typed by a 4-year old, it's all good. Also consider that not everyone is from an english speaking country. You don't make fun of esol students walking past do you? And before anybody tries to correct my grammar/spelling, just know that I really don't care.

    As for the actual topic, I find that using the Wii keyboard is pretty easy.
