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.
