TypeFaster is an online typing tutor, that teaches you to touch type using the keyboard. You won't have to look down at the computer keyboard to get all the letters that you need to type; therefore you won't have to spend all day learning this skill. The software comes in three variants as basic, limited and premium. If you want the advanced features (customizable in the user interface), you will need to upgrade to the premium version.
One of the biggest advantages with TypeFaster is that it can help you learn to type faster. Touch-typing takes time to master, because you have to take your eyes off the keyboard to see the letters. With TypeFaster, you type faster because you are using the same control that the computer uses to navigate through files on your desktop. Furthermore, the software allows you to access any application that is installed on your computer without having to open a new window; therefore you get more desktop real estate to type and edit. Lastly, when you are typing with TypeFaster, you type more characters per minute than you would if you used a regular typing tutor.
It is easy to download the latest TypeFaster software for free (the trial version will let you use it for a month). TypeFaster allows you to practice your typing skills, build up your vocabulary and enhance your writing skills with the click of a button. After you have used the software for a month, TypeFaster will present you with some tests. These tests will measure your speed and accuracy, as well as the number of characters you type per minute. Based on these results, TypeFaster will show you the improvements that you have made in your typing skills.
