[Corpora-List] Seeking logs of keypresses for typed English

Request for help/clues:

I am seeking a corpus of natural typing behaviour, either spontaneously generated or copy-typed, in English, *which includes all the keys pressed* (i.e. including the errors, back-spaces, and corrections). I am interested in error commission and correction, which makes most archives of typed text, even if they include some uncaught errors, unsuitable. If, as well as the keylogging, there was timing information on the keypresses, that would be a bonus.

Does anybody know if such a thing exists?

Thanks in advance Yours Tom
