Rapid Typing Tutor may be a good program to help novice typists
improve, but experienced typists looking to increase their speed may be
frustrated by the program's interface.
The program contains a
series of lessons that scroll across the screen as the user types. Users
can choose from lessons consisting of letters, syllables, capital
letters, digits and symbols, or text. As each lesson scrolls across, a
keyboard diagram shows an outline of hands moving to the appropriate
key. Users type through each lesson and are then shown their scores on
speed, accuracy, and arrhythmic input. The main problem with the
interface is that experienced typists tend to scan ahead in the text
they're typing from, focusing on words or phrases rather than individual
letters. Rapid Typing Tutor allows users to see no more than a few
characters ahead. And since the speed of the scroll depends on the speed
of the typist, those who are already fairly quick may find that the
blur of text flying across the screen is hard to process visually. Users
who are just getting familiar with the keyboard layout likely won't be
bothered by this, but they may grow increasingly frustrated as their
In general the interface could be more
intuitive, but most users should be able to figure it out. Users can
create lessons, but it doesn't seem possible to cut and paste text from
elsewhere into a new lesson, which is disappointing. Installation and
uninstallation are trouble-free. For free software without limitations,
this program is a boon to aspiring typists. More advanced keyboardists
may wish to look elsewhere.
