Typing used to be the domain of writers and secretaries, but now it's an essential skill for just about everybody. Klavaro Touch Typing Tutor is an easy-to-use program that can help everyone, from beginning hunt-and-peckers to more practiced typists, improve their keyboard skills.
The program's interface is plain and intuitive, with a menu that takes you through an introduction and four different levels of typing instruction. The introduction covers the basic concepts of touch typing, and the lessons include a basic course, wherein you practice typing sequences of two or three keys; adaptability, in which you type sequences of random keys; speed, in which you practice typing sequences of random words; and fluidity, in which you type entire paragraphs of text. Klavaro Touch Typing Tutor supports 22 different languages, although the instructions for each exercise are in English throughout. You can choose from 25 different international keyboards and five different keyboard layouts. The program doesn't have a real Help file, but we didn't mind; there wasn't anything about it that we couldn't figure out on our own. We found Klavaro Touch Typing Tutor's exercises to be challenging and effective; even though we type pretty well, we still found ourselves obsessed with improving our fluidity. Overall, we think that this program is a great choice for anyone who wants to become a better typist, no matter his or her current skill level.
Klavar Touch Typing Tutor installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
Klavaro is a free touch typing tutor program. It was created because people became frustrated with the other options, which relied mostly on some few specific keyboards. This application was designed to be keyboard and language independent, saving memory, and time (and money). It features Internationalization, ready to use keyboard layouts, keyboard layout editor, adaptability exercises, semi-online contest, and clean graphical interface.
