Stamina Typing Tutor
Full user review
"Free and easily customized"
- easily customize contrast and size of font (for people with low vision)
- plays humorous sounds (uh-oh, bark, etc) when errors are made
- easily input your own lessons
- a simple program, does not provide personalized feedback besides typing speed and error rate
- built-in lessons are not the greatest, but can customize your own
I've been using this with a touch-typing keyboarding group for people with low vision with excellent feedback from the students. The program allows users to easily customize the interface - change colors/contrast, size of font, turn on/off an on-screen keyboard. Users can also easily type in personalized lessons. I've been using it with Project Gutenberg (free online books) to type out some of my favourite novels like Pride & Prejudice to keep practice interesting. Users are also provided with generalized feedback on speed and error rate, but not specific feedback such as the keys that are giving the user the most problem. There's also the option of playing mp3s while practicing though I haven't used that feature.
Overall, a great FREE typing program that is very easily customized.
