Learn typing with PowerTyping tutor
Our tutorial is designed to teach, develop and practice, step by step, typing skills. Separate lessons are written for Dvorak and Qwerty. One should go through lessons in sequence because they rehearse keys already learned as they add new ones. Instructions for hand positioning over a keyboard are included in lessons.Typing lessons for Dvorak - US alternative ANSI standard keyboard layout
Dvorak typing lessons are self explanatory. Lessons with typing progress and typing speed goal, set by you, are in view. Lessons' structure reflects the Dvorak keyboard layout. Lessons' progress is maintained on your computer as a cookie.
Qwerty typing lessons Typing lessons' structure reflects the Qwerty keyboard layout. Lessons, typing progress and typing speed goal (in words per minute) are in the view. The typing speed goal is set by you. Qwerty lessons have a radio there. Turn it on while practicing. The idea is to type an exercise to the rhythm of music to encourage an even pace, error free typing. Songs have listed speed of the rhythm in wpm.

To spice the practice, check out the educational typing games. Some are enhanced with music. The most popular typing game is the Barracuda and its less graphical version the BarracudaS. Then there are the Foggies a typing game without boundaries. My recommendation for this game is to turn on music, relax and "just keep typing".
The Alphabetic Rain typing game focuses on letters. The Falling Words challenges a typist with words or numbers. The latest game The Jibe practices random letters or numbers.
Try free typing speed tests to see what your speed is and where your wpm goal may be. Various stories are available to practice or test typing. All text has two versions: with one and with two spaces after a period.
The purpose of the Typing practice is to speed up your hands by repeating keys combinations several times. You type in any text, click a button to repeat it few times and type it.
