I bet you are someone that uses the computer on a regular basis that resorts to “hunting and pecking” when it comes to using the keyboard.
Folks, I cannot stress the importance of learning basic keyboarding skills. Personally, I learned to type (on a typewriter) in high school and it is probably one of the most important skills I ever learned. I truly believe, that very class paved the way to my future of learning computers, writing, etc… On a a scale of 1 to 10, my keyboarding skill level is probably a 6 or 7. I still have some fine tuning to do…
Knowing how important it is to myself and other computer users on learning or improving keyboarding skills, I periodically post an article about FREE software that is available where you can be “self-taught” on using the keyboard.
One of my favorites is called TIPP10, a FREE touch typing tutor for Windows, Mac OS and Linux.
What sets TIPP10 above the others is the intelligent text selection feature that will automatically focus on the area of the keyboard that you are stuggling with.
The lesson texts react instantly to your typing mistakes by repeating mistyped letters more frequently. The system helps you eliminate typing mistakes and learn touch typing efficiently. A wide range of dictations ensures you’ll never get bored. You will become acquainted with all the keys on the keyboard in 20 sequential training lessons. Commonly used characters are practiced earlier and more frequently than those that appear less frequently.
TIPP10 if very popular (downloaded over a million times) and is also available in a portable version.
