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 Br?derbund) 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!
