Touch type 2 is an on screen typing tutor which helps you learn to type at your own speed. With the help of graphs, you can monitor your own progress and improve on where you need more practice. Touch type 2 helps to optimise the time you spend practising, by analysing your performance and deciding where you need most practise.
With the new classroom feature the teacher can monitor the progress of a group of students simultaneously.
You also have the option of using the sound effects feature, which can be turned on or off, and a voice that will call out the letters for you to type, so it is just like having your own personal tutor.
Touch type 2 can be used to teach keyboard skills to a variety of ages, from the young beginner to people returning to work to 'brush up' on their skills. Touch type 2 is used by special needs schools and home users, in particular, use by the blind or partially sighted, who are assisted by the voice tutor.
Touch type 2 is highly recommended and praised for use with visually impaired students. The combination of a fully-scalable interface (the on-screen elements get larger as you increase the size of the display), flexible display (choose text sizes, colours and typeface) and spoken cues make Touch type 2 an ideal solution. It is backed up by a clear, printed manual listing all the exercises which can be easily photocopied and/or enlarged as needed. The software is suitable for use with all ages, and has a long track record of use across the country.
