    It seems to be a typing performance issue in Word. Check if there is any issue in other Office apps such as Outlook, Excel, PowerPoint.

    For general troubleshooting, please try the following steps to narrow down the issue:

    1. Make sure you have installed latest updates for Office and Windows.
    2. Disable third-party add-ins in Word : Click File > Options > Add-ins, select Manage COM Add-ins, click Go. View the add-ins list, clear the checkbox for third-party add-ins.
    3. Start Word in safe mode to load no templates, then click File > New to create a new blank document and type letter to check if the issue can be reproduced. To start Word in safe mode, please follow:
      Press Win+R to open Run in Windows, type winword /safe, press Enter.
    4. Select the Disable hardware graphics acceleration option in the File > Options > Advanced dialog box.
