let i = 0;
let counter;
function typeNow() {
   let word = words[i].split("");
   var loopTyping = function() {
      if (word.length > 0) {
         document.getElementById('text').innerHTML += word.shift();
      } else {
         deleteNow();
         return false;
      };
      counter = setTimeout(loopTyping, 200);

function deleteNow() {
   let word = words[i].split("");
   var loopDeleting = function() {
      if (word.length > 0) {
         word.pop();
         document.getElementById('text').innerHTML = word.join("");
      } else {
         if (words.length > (i + 1)) {
            i++;
         }
         else {
            i = 0;
