How the test works

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

The color television appeared in Mexico in 1940. Guillermo González was its creator and based on an Australian patent, he developed a trichromatic system, that broke the monotony of black and white. This technology had a promising future and people liked it. It was a revolution in those years and many countries asked permission (in order) to use this invention. Since then, color television has been a worldwide success.

Clever stuff underway!
