Description of Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing!

Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing from Software Toolworks is a revolutionary typing program that spawned many sequels and a host of imitators. 4-color CGA graphics doesn't hamper the game's appeal at all, as it's not only adequate, but surprisingly very pleasant: you see all the keys clearly, and there is are "ghost" hands that track your typing in real-time.

The program is user-friendly at its best: you can choose to skip lesson, play a fun typing game (3D racing), or read the vast amount of well-written on-line help and tutorial. Accuracy, speed, and % completion are shown as real-time meters to the left of the screen. You can even use a ticking metronome to time your key presses.

With excellent execution, outstanding on-line help, and a plethora of graphs and options to tailor the program to your typing preferences, Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing is, without question, the best typing tutor ever made, with a design that truly stands the test of time. Perhaps nothing attests to the program's endurance better than the fact that the series is still going strong (it is now a label of Brøderbund) even after its original developer The Software Toolworks changed its name to Mindscape and later bought out.

Definitely the best keyboard-related product since Dvorak's keyboard. Two thumbs up!

I'm from South Sudan Capital Juba.
I think were am no body can type like me with 90 words per minute, so am so grateful to the creater of Mavis Beacon and event you deserve a special gift because it is not easy to do something like this.
It made me to type better than even no body in the world.
Just make sure you have made for us easy download and trial period like for thirty days.
