Typing Instructor Deluxe 17.3 CD-ROM (in a paper sleeve)
This fun and easy program is guaranteed to improve your typing ability. It is organized into lessons, tests, and practice material. "Next Step" lessons put you in command of the keyboard, and you use proven teaching methods, such as double and repetitive key-stroking to learn faster. It includes 10-key techniques and instructions for a split or standard keyboard. 3-D graphical hands help guide the student. Tests reinforce the skills that are practiced and provide a measurement of progress. These timed tests provide levels of advancement and make it fun by providing colorful photos and music. After completing any of the typing material, you get immediate feedback on your speed and accuracy with charts and graphs that allow you to see your progress and identify your weak areas. Multimedia presentations on the CD-ROM include the "History of Typing," which gives you a new perspective of the invention and development of typing and teaches the best hand and sitting positions. One of the awesome features on this CD-ROM is something called the Magazine Rack. It includes material from over 300 books, short stories, and articles that you can use to practice your typing with. Also, an Internet site has been designed for this product. New lessons, tests, special exercises, additional articles, and practice material are available to download when you want to use it. My favorite part of this program is the Virtual Adventures section. In this section, you can choose from ten fun games to improve your keyboard or 10-key skills. You have to type quickly and correctly to succeed in these fun games that make you forget you are improving your skills. The games include Sea Adventure, Flotsam Fighter II, Xtreme Typing, Gone Fishin', The Wild West, Tomb Typer, Cliffhanger, Diamond Glider, Typer Shark, and Erik the Viking. This program is for anyone who wants to improve their typing skills and doesn't mind having some fun along the way. Please note that this software comes in a paper sleeve, not a box. Minimum system requirements (Windows ONLY): Windows 7, Vista, XP, ME, 2000, or 98; 50 MB RAM; 580 MB Hard drive space. Rachel S.
