Typing Test


Learning to type is one thing, but typing well is another. Typing Trainer by TypingMaster helps you brush up on your typing skills with quick exercises and games, but it also studies your typing techniques to make specific recommendations to help you improve them. With games, tests, and reviews, Typing Trainer has plenty of features to offer even as your speed and skills improve. You can configure Typing Trainer for a huge range of languages and different keyboard styles, too. Typing Trainer 8.0 is freeware that is ready for Windows 8.

Typing Trainer opens with a full-screen user interface. Were big fans of full-screen displays for educational software since they minimize distractions. But Typing Trainers developers obviously recognize that not everyone feels the same way, since we could easily change to a Small Window interface as well as configure our keyboard type and other options under the Settings tab. Typing Trainer opens on the Training tab, which offers two of the programs main features: Quick Typing Boost, which aims to tune up your typing in an hour or less, and Typing Analyzer, which tracks how you type as you use your computer, studies the data, and makes specific recommendations to help you with your trouble spots. The quick boost starts with a bubble game and moves through common words, sentence drills, and review and analysis. A few minutes of Typing Testers exercises had our fingers flying. We could print reports of our results, too.

For the most part, Typing Trainers tests and games are fun and challenging. We moved through the Training tab and on to Review, Typing Test, Games, and the Typing Analyzer. This interesting tool includes a link to a page of security information for any concerns about its key-tracking capacity. One thing we noticed when we started to sample Typing Trainers features was the copious help the program offers at the business end, where you need it most, though theres also a Web site, blog, and customer support. Typing Trainer packs a lot for freeware -- something for every typist, in fact. Its quick tune-ups are especially valuable for knocking the rust off idle digits!

Typing Trainer is a free, full-featured typing tester and trainer for Windows. First you can take a 45 minute crash course to improve your typing fluency and accuracy with the most common words and letter combinations.

Easy to use and a bit fun. I guess its fun because I am learning how to be a better typist / typer???

I dont like the pop ups, but I was able to get around them

I will keep it. I see other people are trying to remove. I wish you could just send me your license.

Once I downloaded it (and yes, I did make sure to uncheck the add-on programs), my homepage was changed, the screen layout is different and I have popups. My Internet Explorer also crashes.

I will have to remove the program because of the security issues.

Terrific program even for those who have been typing for years. A very easy-to-use interface for beginners and refreshers alike. Well worth your time and effort to download.

Simpler interface if one is used to the glitz and polish of a Mavis Beacon-ized typing tutor.
