Thanks to its helpful tutorials, KP Typing Tutor let you practice typing groups of letters and sentences, as well as get familiar with key positions on your computer's keyboard.
This program is a great solution for busy professionals who never took a typing class in school. KP Typing Tutor is easy to use for adults and children, and there is a link to a Help Web site should you have any questions. We liked how the program offers different types of practice and instruction. You can practice typing anything from simple groups of letters to whole paragraphs. There is even a little game that you can play where you try to type words that float down from the top of the window as fast as you can before they hit the bottom. The game makes the monotonous activity of typing practice fun.
KP Typing Tutor's only drawback is that it does not install or uninstall cleanly. When installing the program, Desktop and Quick Launch icons, and bundled applications were added without asking. Icons and folders also had to be manually removed after uninstalling the program. However, we still found KP Typing Tutor to be a great program for practicing and improving your typing skills.
A number of modules let you practice basic typing course, sentences, or longer text. An on-screen keyboard and L-R hands, highlights the key and finger to be used. KP Typing Tutor supports Dvorak keyboard layouts (Dvorak and Single-handed Dvorak) with special typing courses. A typing game is for fun break. Free companion tools are available for teachers. Courses are in languages of English, Russian, German and Portugues. Version 7.3 includes unspecified updates.
Really easy to use for a beginner like me. I've never tried to learn to type before. Not as tedious as people said it might be, as learning to type is generally boring. With this program you try and beat your last time and accuracy score. Improvement seems to come quickly.
Can't complain, I went from "hunt and peck" with my index finger to both hands now. I still have to look at the keyboard a little, now and then, but I am only on my second day of using this fine product.
