Antique Typewriters by Lady Typewriter

Miscellany

Pangrams - Test Those Keyboards


A pangram is a sentence that contains all 26 letters of the alphabet.  These are very useful for checking the functionality of a typewriter keyboard.  


The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.  

The five boxing wizards jump quickly.  

Jinxed wizards pluck ivy from the big quilt.

Whenever the black fox jumped the squirrel gazed suspiciously.

Amazingly few discotheques provide jukeboxes.

Jackdaws love my big sphinx of quartz.

Quick zephyrs blow, vexing daft Jim.
