Typing Instructor Platinum for Windows

Our Favorite Typing Program!
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.

A No-Nonsense Approach to Typing
As a busy teaching parent with children who feel equally occupied with commitments, we were looking for a no-nonsense approach to typing. Being able to get in, get the lesson done, and move on is a tremendous benefit and with Typing Instructor Platinum you can.

Lessons Can Be Tailored to Your Skill Level
Typing Instructor Platinum offers a variety of typing plans that can be tailored to your skill level and preferences, including a typing plan just for children. Plus, with the "dynamic learning" technology, your child will improve faster 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. Here 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.

Add Your Favorite Music
No typing program is perfect and Typing Instructor Platinum 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 off or add your own music and it will not affect the efficiency of the program.

The Best Tool to Teach This Indispensable Skill
Being a competent typist gives children greater job flexibility and allows them to be more productive. Typing Instructor Platinum is the easiest, most cost-effective method to teach this vital skill.

    Both of my kids used this program for several years and never tired of it. It teaches typing with a very systematic, proven method. Now that my kids are older they have no problem typing, which is without a doubt a great skill to have!
