Limitations

This free typing tutor teaches you how to touch-type. Once you can touch-type you will not need to look at the keyboard to find the letters you want to type.

This is what TypeFaster has to offer:

  • Supports multiple keyboard layouts and more can be added easily
  • A clear indication of which fingers to use. This is the essence of touchtyping
  • A 3D typing game
  • Typing statistics and the option of practising the least accurate/slowest/custom keys
  • Keyboard is not a fixed size (resolution independent)
  • Multi-user support
  • Teacher support (view student statistics)
  • Interface for editing lesson files and game settings
  • Backspace support
  • Right to left text support
  • Variable text size
  • Lesson files can be prose or poems
  • Lesson progress indicator
  • Completely free with full source code availability

"Thank You!"

I have used computers all my life but never learned how to type with proper form. Not to say I was slow before, but I am substantially faster now and can type without looking at the keyboard! I would not recommend this program for beginners though (ie: children) because the vocabulary necessary is semi-advanced ie:propagandist, sadist, disenchantment, etc.

Overall I was very satisfied with the product and would suggest it to anyone looking for a good way to enhance their typing skills.
