RapidTyping Typing Tutor
Rapid Typing is a fast and useful application that allows you to improve your typing skills, both in accuracy and speed. It can help you learn touch typing through a series of lesson that include exercises to learn individual letters, numbers and symbols as well as a series of text exercises. A virtual keyboard is displayed below the text to be typed and help you with finding keys and finger position without having to look at your keyboard. Other features include the ability to edit included lessons or to create your own, detailed progress statistics and support for multiple users. RapidTyping Typing Tutor supports QWERTY, QWERTZ, AZERTY, ABNT2, and Dvorak keyboard layouts. The program comes with a rather annoying fish tank animation background which can (and probably should) be turned off. Current version is 2.7.7 which can downloaded from the below link.
