My team at work has been using Office 2013 for some time now. We’re vetting it for use company-wide I guess. I’ve already written about how ugly it is here, but now I’d like to write about a more pressing concern. They have instituted a typing delay which, though slight, has been driving me absolutely nuts.
I touch type and I’ve been doing a long time and am thus pretty fast. For a slower typist or a pecking typist this delay is likely not noticeable. But for folks like me it’s intolerable.
I have found this article which discusses the solution. It, as you may have guessed, requires a registry hack. That being said, proceed at your own caution.
They provide both registry keys for download or the manual method for making the necessary change.
