CLEVELAND — People can type almost as fast on a smart phone as they can on a traditional keyboard, according to the Guardian.

In a study of more than 37,000 people from 160 countries, researches found that on average people type about 70 percent as fast on their phones as they do on a full-sized keyboard.

That equates to about 36 words per minute for an average person.

Lunch Break threw voice-to-text into the mix to see who could get a sentence typed out fastest in a fierce competition between Jay Crawford, Hollie Strano and Stephanie Haney.

Hollie won the contest, Jay came in second and Stephanie lost out twofold because she had a typo in her sentence.
