    "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" is a pangram (A sentence that uses all the letters of the alphabet) that has been used to test typewriters and computer keyboards because it is coherent, short, and contains all the letters of the English alphabet. The pangram was developed by Western Union to test Telex/TWX data communication equipment for accuracy and reliability. It was often used for testing the teletype services (a procedure known as "foxing") when these machines were still used. In the age of computers, it is often used as a sample text in font selection contexts.

    It is something that is used in typing classes. It just so happens that this Sentence contains all the letters of the alphabet so many times, students are required to type that sentence over and over again to get used to knowing where the different letters are on the keyboard.

    As mentioned above, change the 'A' to 'The', and you get a sentence which contains all the letters of the alphabet. It's often used in typing (or keyboarding for the younger generation) to practice all the letter-key locations on the board.

    You and other answers don't have the sentence quite right.

    The quick grey fox jumps over the lazy brown dog is a typing exercise. It uses all the letters of the alphabet.
