How does it work?
Start with the right posture. Your seat position, eye level and other factors are key to your health and typing efficiency.
Take the initial test to determine your average typing speed and percentage of error. The program tailors itself to your current level, and then sets you a goal just above your current proficiency, which you can aim for.
You can also choose to have the program analyse which keys you’re not so good at so that you can practice them, or you can choose the specific keys you want to work on.
Practise with typing games. You’ll score points for accuracy and speed.
Type to music. If you have iTunes, you can choose to type with your own music running in the background, or you can get the Typing Tutor to look up the lyrics for songs for you to type.
Print the proof. You can print out a certificate showing your accuracy and average typing speed.
