    Anyone have a rough idea or even a guess?

    FT8: about 8WPM (From Gary Hinson's FT8 operating guide)

    PSK31: about 50WPM (From Wikipedia)

    Both are crude approximations. YMMV.

    JS8Call, normal about 12wpm, fast about 22wpm, turbo about 40wpm.

    Not speaking for the OP, but it is always handy to have scales of reference.
