You can also play a typing game and expand the program with open lessons or make your own to meet your specific needs.
Intelligent text selection
The lesson texts react instantly to your typing mistakes by repeating mistyped letters more frequently. The system helps you eliminate typing mistakes and learn touch typing efficiently. A wide range of dictations ensures you’ll never get bored. You will become acquainted with all the keys on the keyboard in 20 sequential practice lessons. Commonly used characters are practiced earlier and more frequently than those that appear less frequently.
Ticker and virtual assistance keyboard
You can change the font, speed and color of the text in the ticker to ensure a steady typing flow. Keys and key paths appearing in color on a virtual keyboard help you to use the right fingers and keep the right starting position. A status bar displays the fingers that should be used and tallies errors and characters per minute.
After each typing lesson you will receive a printable comprehensive report that evaluates the lesson. A list of all completed lessons including details about duration, number of errors, characters per minute and an evaluation provide you with an overview of the work you have done. A lesson trend diagram shows your progress and allows you to easily compare your results. TIPP10 also shows you your error rate for all the characters and fingers used in the typing lessons. This way you can see right away which keys and which fingers you still need to work on.
Open lessons and using your own texts
You can use open lessons or create your own once you’ve got the hang of touch typing and seek to improve your error rate or speed. There are open lessons with dictations for specialized topics so that you can familiarize yourself with particular styles such as programming or legal texts. You can also load your own texts into TIPP10 and have them dictated to you.
You can choose how the lesson will run. You can set the duration of the lesson, how the typing tutor reacts to typing mistakes and which visual aids will support you during the lesson. In general settings you can also personalize the software even more. Here, for example, you can select a different speed for the ticker or a larger typeface.
