Our Review:

Rapid Typing Tutor is another good typing tutor for intermediate learners who want to improve their typing in a new and interesting way. I especially liked the colorful theme because I am a strong believer in the link between color and memory comprehension.

What sets Rapid Typing Tutor apart from other typing programs is its many noteworthy features including: a virtual keyboard with moving hands; progress tracking that displays your current/past printing speed and accuracy; and the capability for you to make your own lessons.

Although Rapid Typing Tutor has a multitude of features, I would not recommend it to beginners. There is no instruction on how to type other then watching the moving hands, and the interface is largely confusing. However, it is a great program for people who have memorized where most of the keys are and just want to become more proficient in their typing skills.

I suggest outright beginners start with Kiran's Typing Tutor because of the informative lessons Kiran gives.
