Publisher Description:

Typing Instructor Gold is the most advanced Typing Program available. It presents Typing Instructor in full-screen size and rich color for the optimum Typing Instructor experience for typists. No other Typing tutorial is more entertaining and educational.

Pack your bags and get ready to go on a Worldwide Typing Adventure! Travel through time, go on Safari, or take a trip around the world as you learn to type or improve your typing skills. Typists begin their adventure in the Travel Port where they select a unique travel adventure. First stop: the prehistoric era, or Antarctica, or Australia! Each typing adventure is packed with so much fun and motivation, typists forget they are learning to type. They’ll progress through the Adventure by taking lessons, tests, typing challenges and playing fun typing games using just the keys they have learned and practiced in lessons and tests. When they complete the typing activities at a destination, they’ll receive a stamp in their passport. When the passport is full, they have completed the adventure and are on their way to becoming Touch Typists.

Packed with Motivation

The ultimate reward of the Adventure is completing all typing activities in the Adventure and filling their passport with stamps from each stop on their journey. Typists can take all three Adventures and visit 36 exciting destinations.

Practice Terminal

There are several fun ways to practice. Typists can take a break from their typing adventure at any time to check out the Practice Terminal. Here they’ll find an arcade where they can choose to play any of Typing Instructor’s games. Additional lessons and tests, not included in the adventure, are also available. Typists can also create their own custom lessons and tests. Typists can practice dictation, choosing from a library of diverse materials. They can also practice typing an article or story, choosing from hundreds of topics in the magazine rack or even create their own personal magazine.

Adventure Tools

Take the Tour to learn everything about Typing Instructor. The Travel Port shows typists where they are on their Adventure, where they are going next, and what keys they will learn. The Passport shows stamps of the places they have visited so far. Typists can display a variety of graphs in the Saved Results area to see their performance on all their completed typing activities; lessons, tests, articles, and even games. Users can see their progress and the keys on the keyboard they need to practice. Typing Instructor’s Dynamic Learning feature evaluates Typist’s Results to determine weak typing skill areas. Once identified, Typing Instructor automatically creates specific lessons for the typist to improve weak areas.

Hours of Fun

Typing Instructor has unique games to keep typists interested in playing. This repetitive activity builds finger-to-key memory and before they know it, they are well on their way to becoming Touch Typists! Games can be played in a variety of ways, including different levels of difficulty to keep typists interested in continuing to the next level. Games can be played with just the keys they have learned so far, or with all the keys on the keyboard.

Adventure Settings

There are many program controls in Typing Instructor. Typists can select English or Spanish and a Typing Plan that fits their skill level – there are 20 unique plans! Typists can even build their own custom plan, as well as adjusting their goal word per minute at any time.

Category Description for Typing Instructor:

Improve your typing skills with this entertaining, interactive program. It is similar to Typing Instructor Deluxe 17.3, but with additional enhancements to make learning more fun. This program centers around a travel theme, with the player beginning at a travel port surrounded by twelve world flags. As you progress through lessons, games, and typing tests, you receive a stamp on a passport for each destination you complete. Photos of world destinations appear throughout the lessons. Helpful reference features include a How to Type button (covering finger positions and posture) and a presentation on the history of typing. The Practice Center contains fun activities, such as the Magazine Rack (typing exercises from over 300 books, articles and short stories), dictation exercises, and the Arcade (with twelve video games). Students receive feedback on words per minute and accuracy after each lesson (with detailed analysis available), and they can even print achievement certificates. Lessons can be completed in English or Spanish. Please note: an internet connection is required for registration/activation but not for daily use of the program. Available for Mac or PC systems, or in a set that includes both. Software comes in a plain paper sleeve with basic installation instructions. Set of both versions includes both PC and Mac CDs.

We have used the typing instructor for the past two years to teach my children to type. It has worked very well, and after spending 15 minutes a day with the typing program they have learned to type and increased their typing speed over time. We purchased a new computer, and we needed to up-grade the software for the typing instructor so I am purchasing an up-dated CD so they can continue to progress in their typing.

Will this work with macOS Catalina?

BEST ANSWER: No, it does not. I contacted the company and they said that "Typing Instructor for Kids Gold" does. I don't like it as well as the version you asked about but it's better than nothing!
