Letter Chase Typing Tutor

Editors' Review

by   / July 27, 2010

Typing used to be the domain of secretaries and writers, but the explosive popularity of computers has made it an important skill for almost everyone. People who can't type are at a serious disadvantage when it comes to succeeding in school, applying for jobs, and even keeping in touch with friends and family. Letter Chase Typing Tutor is a simple program that teaches you to type using a step-by-step process, ensuring that proper technique is learned while keeping the process from becoming overwhelming.

Letter Chase's interface is plain and intuitive, with plenty of guidance for newbies. You first create a new profile by entering your name, which allows the program to be used by multiple people. The program then takes you through a series of 11 lessons, starting with the letters on and surrounding the home row of keys and moving through the shift keys, punctuation, numbers, and symbols. Each lessons includes practice typing each key individually as well as typing lines of words using the keys that are the focus of the lesson. The program measures both speed and accuracy, and you can view graphs and reports showing your progress. Letter Chase also offers typing drills at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels, tests, games, and more. The built-in Help file is well-written and thorough. Overall, we think that Letter Chase Typing Tutor is a great way for people of all ages to learn to type.

Letter Chase Typing Tutor installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Letter Chase Typing Tutor 5.4. The trial version is limited to 30 days.
