Typing Instructor Gold for Windows, Version 22
If you are looking for the best typing program available for your family, look no further. We spent countless hours evaluating the competition, but everything else we tried was juvenile, stressful, violent, or just plain dumb.
As busy teaching parents with children who feel equally occupied with commitments, we looked for a no-nonsense approach to typing. Getting in, getting the lesson done, and moving on is a tremendous benefit, and with Typing Instructor Gold, you can.
Typing Instructor Gold offers a variety of typing plans tailored to your skill level and preferences, including a typing plan just for children. Plus, your child will improve faster with the "dynamic learning" technology because his weak areas will be automatically targeted.
With this version, you will be able to create your own lessons, add your own music, and even build your own typing plans.
Finally, the clincher for us was the dictation feature. Your child will improve his touch-typing skills by typing as the computer reads aloud a passage to him. As you can guess, some passages are better than others, but this is a great, practical skill, so sort through the essays to find ones that you are comfortable with.
No typing program is perfect, and Typing Instructor Gold is no exception. We don't care for the arcade games, and some of the music drives us nuts. But you can skip the games and turn them off or add your own music, and it will not affect the program's efficiency.
Being a competent typist gives children greater job flexibility and allows them to be more productive. Typing Instructor Gold is the easiest, most cost-effective method to teach this vital skill.
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.
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.
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.
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.
