Touch-Typing Tutors

Azabat offers two different touch-typing tutors - a beginners version and an advanced version - which are available separately or bundled together. Multi-users packs are also available for site licensing.

The beginners version is designed for people starting from scratch, with little or no experience of using a keyboard. It consists of 7 lessons (letter drills) and 7 exercises (word drills), starting with the letters A,S,D and F and building up to using all the letter and number keys. Each lesson has a corresponding exercise in which you practice by typing words based on the letters you have learned so far.

Pricing:
Single user = 30
4 user = 89
10 user = 199

The advanced version is designed for people with some typing experience and covers a lot more ground. There are 5 sections to this programme. Section 1 covers the letter keys, section 2 covers capitals and punctuation, section 3 covers shortcuts and navigation keys, section 4 is an introduction to typing in Braille (grade 1) and section 5 has a collection of spelling tests.

Pricing: as for beginners version above

There is also a bundled version, called the Azabat Typing-Tutor Collection, which simply contains one disk of each version and costs 50.
