TypingMaster Pro for Windows is a personal typing tutor for learning professional touch typing skills. You will learn to type up to 4 times faster without errors and save dozens of valuable working hours every year. The new improved typing skills will help you get things done quicker.

TypingMaster's extensive, clearly structured study material covers the basics of touch typing, the numeric keypad, special marks and tips on ergonomics. Learning is supported by multi-form exercises, including graphical keyboard drills, timed texts, games and personalized review exercises.

TypingMaster is a good program to learn typing on a keyboard, though the texts are plagued with a lot of spelling and grammatical mistakes. Those texts are not always consistent with spacing and punctuation either, which can be very misleading when typing text and getting error penalties because a hidden space was expected at a strange place.

Fortunately there are separate, correct texts coming from known authors, outside the scope of the lessons.

The software analyses the typing speed and the difficult keys, which seems to work at the beginning but quickly becomes erratic in the last lessons and would insist you take extra practice for keys that are supposedly difficult.

Three games are available, but I seriously doubt their use as their difficulty increases so quickly it makes them pointless to play.

So overall not a bad program, but could do with some improvements, especially in the proofing of the texts. After all, if you learn to type, you may as well do it correctly.

Pros
  • international, supports a variety of keyboards
  • statistics on speed, accuracy and difficult keys
  • bug free
Cons
  • very bad spelling and erroneous spacing in texts
  • lessons evenly spaced at the beginning but precipitated at the end
  • user interface not always well-thought with pop-ups appearing in the middle of practice sessions
