Ten Thumbs Typing Tutor

Runtime Revolution today released a major upgrade to its Ten Thumbs Typing Tutor software for Windows and Mac OS X. Version 4.1 adds Dutch keyboard/language support, and Swiss keyboard support under French as well as German languages. The update offers several enhancements to overall performance/stability, and includes five habits of touch typing. Key features of Ten Thumbs Typing Tutor include "Ten Thumbs SongSeeker," a typing solution that allows users to type lyrics while listening to music; a "real world language generator" that produces fresh sentences to type; a personal trainer approach that teaches the five habits of touch typing; adaptive lessons that automatically adjust to skill levels, teaching new keys as necessary and adjusting the lesson plan; and a new multimedia experience that lets users watch as the "Typing Viking" comes alive on the screen. Ten Thumbs Typing Tutor 4.1 is priced at $26, and requires Mac OS X 10.1.3 or later.

    First look??

    This typing tutor has been around for about 10 years and hasn't changed all that much since then. Have a look at Master Key at macinmind.com as well.
