"Take your typing to the next level"

Overview

TypingMaster Typing Tutor is a typing program that combines standard tests, customized tests, computerized tests based on past typing mistakes and can even monitor daily computer use to further pick up on errors made and tailor new training to work on weaknesses found.

The full range of the keyboard can be tested including letter, numbers, the numeric keypad, special characters, and more.

There are timed drills, adjustable time trials, speed building exercises and even tips on where to place the hands for better ergonomics.

The Typing Meter Widget is a little controversial as it can monitor keyboard entry when not using the TypingMaster software directly recording words entered during the course of a day. This can be used to pick up on further typing mistakes and change training accordingly (the word recording can be easily disabled within the software).

Installation

The installation required 11.2 MB available disk space to setup and completed without any difficulties. There was an attractive splash screen during the installation which gives a good graphical preview of what to expect when using the typing tutor.

There were no malicious software, adware or toolbars included with the setup program.

TypingMaster Typing Tutor requires Windows 2000, 2003, XP, Vista, 7, or Windows Server.

Interface

When starting to use the application for the first time, the user is asked to enter their name.

The initial screen for Studying has some basic settings and a sidebar menu on the right side. The menu options include Studying, Typing Meter, Custom Review, Typing Test, Games, Statistics, Settings, and About.

The application can be set to automatically load for the typist. There are notification options to be alerted when typing training is needed or when to take a break (with several time choices to choose between).

  • Typing Meter Widget that analyzes typing performance during the workday and can adjust training based on mistakes and perceived weaknesses

  • Optimize training to suit certain emphasis or weaknesses
  • Change the duration of exercises when results are improving quickly
  • New tests are devised by the software based on previous typing errors

Cons

  • Usernames, passwords and other sensitive information can be captured by the application as it passively monitors typing during the day outside of use of the application (word capture can be disabled).

Conclusion

TypingMaster Typing Tutor is an excellent typing training program which can do wonders for improving both speed and accuracy with its range of adaptable training methods, exercises and timed tests.
