  1. Typing skills
    Mavis Beacon is one of the best packages available. I’ve used it personally and found it very good – it took me from two finger typing to touch typing in only a short time.
    It costs about £20 per copy and is available from most Computer stores or even big book stores.
    I keep a couple of copies for anyone in our business who thinks touch typing skills would help.

  2. Keyboard Skills
    I recommend Typing Master Pro(see You can view a demo on their website, test your typing speed and order the product. It can go on an intranet for ease of access for your users. It has proved very successful with our staff (mostly lawyers), and is customised for each user and tracks individual progress through the course.

  3. My recommendation……
    In my opinion Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing is the best package on the market. My sister teaches community IT and also uses Mavis for all her students who have varying abilities. (Her oldest student is 85 and he is now a silver surfing touch typist!)

  4. KAZ Keyboard CBT
    KAZ offer a good CBT that is used by the Open University,Learn Direct and many secondary schools. It takes about 90 mins to complete and provides feedback and assessments. This can be purchased direct or via Netg

  5. Using colleges
    The colleges in our area offer KAZ for free as part of the government’s basic skills initiative.

  6. KAZ is brill
    Sorry Mavis, in comparison you are rather dull and serious committment needed – Kaz is fun and it works!
