Let's face it, we could all stand for a little bit of a typing tune-up. Heck, some of us could probably use a complete overhaul!

Improper typing technique results in reduced productivity and can even add unnecessary strain to your delicate typing muscles. But who has the time and energy to enroll in a keyboarding class or endure the torture of bland, formulaic software tutors?

Ten Thumbs Typing Tutor is the easy and fun way to learn how to type like a pro, without looking at the keys! A virtual 'personal trainer' (who also happens to be a viking) adapts to your specific needs, teaching you all the best habits right from the get-go. Ten Thumbs is engaging enough for distractable children and straightforward enough for time-conscious adults!

The latest version of Ten Thumbs Typing Tutor has been optimised to work on Catalina and Windows 64bit machines including Windows 10

John Sutherland Very good typing teaching and improvement program, good even for experienced typists. Well written and very comprehensive.

Mike B I don't know how this tutor compares with others - it seemed fine and I bought a license to help someone in my household who wants to learn.

One aspect I think could be improved is that you must use the mouse to navigate the buttons in the GUI. Not a deal killer, but a little irritating.

However getting a trial was a little frustrating:

- the website loads ...something... between each page and counts up from 0-100%. On *each* page load. The intermission wasn't too bad in Chrome (about 2 seconds), but in Firefox - my default browser - it would take 10 seconds or more between pages

- you must sign up for an email list in order to get the download link to the trial software

One final nitpick:

If you ask about updates in the program it says that there's an update to version 5.0 and sends you to a webpage that says you need to pay for the upgrade.

I couldn't find anywhere inside the program to tell me what version of the software was running. If you look at the Windows property sheet for the executable, the details tab says the the product version is So I'm assuming that the update query is broken and that what's already v5.x.

LiveCode Ltd Thank you for your feedback Mike, we'll take a look at the navigation. You are correct, the update report is a bit behind the curve! You can see you are running 5.2 if you check the very first screen that loads, before it goes to the screen where you choose your student file. It will say 5.2 in the top left corner. We'll get the update dialog fixed.
