Limited keyboard support, directed mainly to German Speaking users.

I've used this years before but after re-checking it I was kind of surprised there was no WPM (Words Per Minute) counter anywhere, instead only CPM (Characters Per Minute) is listed. Have read elsewhere that WPM is CPM/5 but it would be preferable to be displayed within such a program.
