    Typing Tutor

    I googled touch typing tutors to find one to download for my kids. Too many results! Anyone have a favorite- freeware preferred?
    Thanks

    Well, it's not free, it's ~$20usd, but back in the day, "Mavis Bacon Teaches Typing" was the software that everyone used for eyboarding skills. Apparently it's stilll available.

    Now that Jim has suggested it, I do remember that software although I don't know anyone who has used it. Here's a couple of links you can start from:

    Re: Typing Tutor

    Thank you very much for the link. My GF doesn't know how to type, and is seriously thinking of learning. It astounds her that I do not need to look at the keyboard when typing; she's jealous, and will jump on this!
