As an example of this perspective, Salthouse cites his work on the acquisition of skill in transcription typing (Salthouse, 1984). Transcription typing requires reacting to visually presented material by making successive keysmkes. Thus, typing speed should be constrained by the time it takes for a visual reaction time to be made. As Salthouse describes below, the constraints should be serious indeed. reaction times to successively presented stimuli in a recent study (Salthouse, 1984) averaged more than 550 msec per response, which, assuming 5 characters per word, would correspond to a maximum typing rate of less than 22 words per minute.

For 70 mph. , and for 100 mph. 54 ft. Using mean figures for "movement reaction time" plus "movement time", we get corresponding estimates of 32, 45, 60, and 63 ft. 20 sec. , and for "movement reaction time" 34,49,65, and 69 ft. Note that for fast balls or for something like "movement reaction time" the batter may have to get his signal us or before rhe pitcher releases the bull. (Hubbard, 1955, p. 368). 24 F . Allard Hubbard (1955) also makes the point that it is incorrect to think of batting as a reaction time task.
