Category Description for Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing:

One of the most popular software programs for learning and improving typing skills, this program's strength is that it is constantly challenging the user to improve their speed as well. And it works, with a combination of lessons and motivating games - all of which are tailored to the user's skill level. Mavis Beacon, your electronic teacher, keeps track of your progress, dynamically adjusts your progress based on performance, and guides you towards becoming a faster, more accurate typist. You can customize lesson plans based on age, typing ability, and progress. Arcade-style games are interspersed with the lessons to help switch up the practice. Summary reports keep track of speed, accuracy, words per minute, goals, and key proficiency, so you know exactly where you can improve. Each time you use the software, you pick up again where you ended previously. There are numerous user settings so you can select your goals, age, keyboard style, and music preferences (you can even import your own MP3 files). The lessons are easy to complete, and a keyboard with semi-transparent hands at the bottom types along with you to show you which fingers should strike which keys. Interspersed at appropriate times are quizzes, tests, and breaks for games to help you practice your skills and track your progress. We have used this program (in a much earlier version) in our homeschool, and found it highly effective, especially in building speed.

This program is now only available as a downloadable software license. Subscription licenses (lifetime) are sent via email with links (90 days to activate). The Personal Edition allows for 1 student on 1 computer only. The Family Edition provides 3 licenses for up to 3 computers. ~ Ruth

we have recently purchased this and can not find where you download our redemption code ?
A shopper on Nov 30, 2021

Is internet required for installing the program, running it, or both? I need a typing program that is not dependent on internet for daily use.
