Kiran's Typing Tutor
An ideal typing tutor for absolute beginners with a large amount of typing instructions and practices.
Pros & Cons:
Kiran's Typing Tutor takes typing back to square one. The introductory lessons do a wonderful job teaching proper habits, techniques, and posture to use whilst typing for optimum productivity. Kiran also teaches you a variety of different hand exercises and stretches to perform before a rigorous typing session.
Informative progress reports display your past/present wpm and accuracy, as well as the letters you most frequently mistype.
Unfortunately, Kiran's typing design is extremely flawed. When you have finished typing a set of letters or words, the screen changes, making it hard to type at a constant speed. Furthermore, you receive an error if you press the space bar after typing the last letter/word which you would normally do in the real world.
For that reason, I do not recommend Kiran to intermediate users. It is, however, an ideal typing tutor for absolute beginners. The interface is user-friendly, and there is a large amount of typing instruction/practice available for both QWERTY and Dvorak keyboard layouts; it also includes 4 typing games.
