Kiran's Typing Tutor1.0
Kiran's Typing Tutor is a tool that teaches you how to type faster, by offering easy-to-follow tutorials, tests and games.
The user interface of the software may seem a bit childish. Here you can create profiles based on your user name, which makes it perfect if you want to share this program with other individuals.
Take basic lessons
In order to get started, you can take a look at the "Basic Lessons" in which you can learn how the Typing Tutor is divided and other useful information about typewriting.
So, you can initiate "Typing Practice" in the beginning. Basically, you go through several lessons in which you have to correctly input the keys displayed on the screen. It is highly recommended you follow the pictures that show you which finger corresponds to which key.
Tests, games and statistics
In addition, you can take typing tests ("Sentence", "Paragraph", "Accounting", "Coding"), play typing games with the possibility of increasing speed ("Duckling", "Invaders", "Bombers", "Balloons") and practice typing on the numeric keyboard.
Furthermore, kids can learn how to type the alphabet, numbers, colors and words. You can view the lesson number, accuracy, time taken, word per minute, keys per minute, errors (in the case of coding typing tests) and a progress graph (for accuracy, words per minute and errors).
The program uses a low amount of system resources, includes a thorough help file and is easy to use by beginners. Nonetheless, experts should not neglect it, especially if we're talking about programmers who want to perfect their code-typing skills.
If we had to mention a downside to Kiran's Typing Tutor, it would include the interface which needs a makeover, as well as the fact that you cannot disable typing sounds (they can become very annoying at some point).
The bottom line is that Kiran's Typing Tutor is a great tool you can can play with, in order to improve your typing abilities. We strongly recommend it to all users.
