|With its emphasis on practical, real-world text, Typing ABC teaches
typing skills more quickly than programs based upon abstract concepts.
Key words for each lesson are based on the most common words that are
used in schools, business, and homes. Typing ABC's lessons and drills
are based upon a stunning onscreen keyboard that shows the placement
of the keys. Using color, sound, and animation, there is no need for
aspiring typists to look at their fingers while typing. The screen also
contains copybook text for the student to type. The user gets immediate
feedback for correctly and incorrectly typed keys. In addition, Typing
ABC has a unique Finger Tips graphic device that reminds you of the
position and direction of your fingers when typing characters. As with
all of Typing ABC's on-screen feedback tools, Finger Tips may be easily
turned on or off by the user.
As typing skills increase, users can move from Watch and Type mode
into Blind Typing, forcing them to look at the text to be typed instead
of the results of their typing. Typing ABC uses analyze your typing
statistics, find your weakness, and construct copybook drills that help
you practice the keys and key combinations that you need to work on.
In addition to using the built-in lessons, you can import your own text
files for drill and practice. There is even a Tetris-like typing game
that provides a lighthearted break from the drills and lessons. Typing
ABC gives you real-time feedback on your typing accuracy and speed.
Progress meters keep track of your level of effort, and performance
meters show you the results of your most recent practice or quiz. Beginning
typists have two problems: They cannot type without watching the keyboard,
and their fingers - especially ring fingers and pinkies cannot move
fast enough. Typing ABC helps users overcome both problems, and turns
hunt-and-peck typists into touch typists.

Turbo Keyboard (MS-DOS)
Turbo Keyboard teaches you how to type. It supports 23
keyboard layouts (including Keyb US, Keyb UK, and Keyb IT), and it was
conceived to make learning a fast and easy affair. Even from the first
drill, you will be typing without looking at the keyboard or your hands.
The program contains 500 sentences and 2,500 words. It is also possible
to create personalized drills, setting the difficulty by changing the
waiting time for each stroke, hiding keyboard characters, and so on.
This version provides a new installation program.
