5-0 out of 5 stars Great tool for typing
I purchased this from Best Buy for 10 bucks. My mom told me that there is no price for something you learn. I think about it, and I really agree. I mean, we waste so much money on games and then when something educational comes up we hesitate.

This is a great learning tool for the whole family. I love the setup and graphics, they're simple yet neat. They are also appealing. This program can teach you how to type even if you never ever typed before.

I am a fast typer (not bragging, 65 wpm on average) and I still use this program. My mom, who got it, is about 4 words a minute.
Mavis is very encouraging. She tells you to keep practicing. She gives you compliments and advice. There are fun games that enforce what you learn. These games include Penguin Crossing (where you type the words as they appear on floating icebergs), Chameleon (where you type words as the Chameleon eats them), and even Race (where your speed moves the car). I find these games fun. I don't know how to play the piano game , ragtime, correctly though. It has to do with a metronome.

Even if you're a fast typer this program will find out your level. It game me a typing test, and cleverly found out my weaknesses. My weaknesses are numbers and symbols (e.g. 1243689()!@#$#$%^][{]}). It gives you tests like dictation and transcription (I don't know how to work that).

If you want to practice your own lessons, you can do that too. All you do is create a text file in notepad, import it onto the program, and then type it. I think I can try that with funny text to make it a more enjoyable experience.

In conclusion, this software is a great value. I don't think there is a better value out there. It can be used by multiple people, and is a very fun tool for learning. It's a keyboarding class in itself.

3-0 out of 5 stars Spacing after punctuation marks
The Mavis Typing program should space two (2) spaces after the following punctuation marks: Period, Colon, Question Mark, and exclamation point. I have been teaching Office Occupations for over twelve (12) years and have been typing for over 40 years. The inventor of the typewriter has always placed two spaces after the above punctuation marks because it usually means a pause. When a student types on this program, an error mark shows if two spaces are used. Why can't Mavis use spaces the way typists have been taught over the years. I type over 100 words per minute and do not understand why Mavis has changed the way people type. Please respond.

5-0 out of 5 stars Type spacing
For all of you traditional typists who insist there be two spaces after puncuation, get with the 21st century. Since the age of the PC, the rule has changed and is now a single space. Get with the program!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Almost 5 stars...Reply to Bertha
We have really enjoyed this product. It is much more patient than I would be if I were the teacher! :) The program is very flexible and offers a lot of variety. I am reluctant to give it five stars because one of the games (piano metronome) is difficult to understand and use, and there is no option to remove it from the repertoire. Otherwise, it is really a great product. In response to Bertha's comment about period spacing. In the user settings (accessible at the welcome screen) you can choose whether you want 1 or 2 spaces following a period. I share her frustration with the change from 2 spaces to 1. I was taught the two space method, and it has taken quite some time to break the habit. Happy typing!

5-0 out of 5 stars spacing after periods (reply to Bertha)
...I, too, was taught typing in the days of manual typewriters when everything was the same width. In those days, it did make sense for two spaces to follow every period.

However, the rules have changed. Typing Teachers who were trained in the last few years have learned that one space after periods are okay. As Brenda said, in the days of typesetting with variable spaced text, one space after a period looks great. Just look at any article in your newspaper, and I bet you'll see just one space after each period. It still looks good, though.

In any case, we use Mavis Beacon at our Literacy Council ...and we think it's great. I do wish, however, that Mavis Beacon's programmers would ignore two spaces when someone like you types it. That would make the program even better. (I also think they should ignore errors like hitting return when the program expects a space).

I'd give the program Six Stars if I could.

3-0 out of 5 stars Can't run software on a computer with 1GB memory
I have the same problem on a computer running Windows 2000 with 1GB memory. The software won't start and gives me the error message "Director Player 6.0 - This program requires at least 3MB of free virtual memory to run". I know there is more than 3MB of free virtual memory on my computer. I tried different virtual memory setting and found that setting virtual memory to 128MB would cause the software to run. It is obvious that the software has mis-calculated the available virtual memory. It interprets virtual memory > 1GB as less than 3MB virtual memory. I have sent email to the technical support at Encore and are waiting for their reply. I share the previous reader's opinion that setting the virtual memory to a lower setting is not an acceptable solution.

However, after I started the program, I like the interface and graphic. The software is better than "Mind Power Math Middle School" from the Learning Company. I also like that it has a game where you can test your skill.

I will write an update after I receive a reply from Encore.

3-0 out of 5 stars Way around memory problem
Haven't tried this software but had same problem with some other software, the error message: "Director Player 6.0 - This program requires at least 3MB of free virtual memory to run". The only fix is to change your virtual memory settings to something below 500mb or to exactly 4000mb. Of course, I chose 4000mb since I have a large hard drive and almost 1 gig of memory on this pc.

So the full fix is:
From the Windows XP desktop, select the Start button, right-click on the My Computer icon, and select Properties from the resulting menu.

Click on the Advanced tab to bring it forward, and then select the Settings button within the Performance section.

In the Performance Options window, click on the Advanced tab to bring it forward, and then select the Change button in the Virtual Memory section.

Click the Custom size button...
Change the Initial size (MB) setting to 4000
Change the Maximum size (MB) setting to 4000

Select SET to accept the change, which will close the Virtual Memory window. Select OK to close the Performance Options window. And select OK to exit the System Properties window.

1-0 out of 5 stars $40 + junk = angry customer
This is a faulty and buggy piece of software. It will not run on my PC (XP Home)without me changing my Virtual Memory from 1000 mb to 200 mb...what an absurdity! The developer offers no solution other than to change my VM everytime I want to use their software.

Well, forget it. They're not the only game in town.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's Great!!
I have the Elementary Advantage, and I'm about to go into Middle School Advantage. I find these programs are excellent. I am a homeschooling parent, and the Elementary Advantage suite have done a great job in assisting me with teaching my child. I've learned a lot myself. My son is about to enter middle school grades, and as I explore the the Middle School Advantage suite, I marvel at how well its put together. I have not run into answers that are wrong as was the claim of one reviewer. But, that does not bother me because you will find wrong answers in educational books written by the best educators. I focus on the how well I am taught the subject. If I can catch the wrong answers then I was taught well. I paid only $24.99 for each suite. I also have a Dell Dimension 4600, and the programs run fine. For all those having a problem running the program. You better get a Dell, Dude! For the money, IT'S GREAT!

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Recommended
If this program can confuse X and Y intercepts I can only imagine what else may be wrong with it. I just purchased this for my son today, but will be returning it tomorrow. He has a placement test in 2 weeks and I don't want him to blow it because of this faulty software. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars upon using the typing tutor
Sometime ago, I purchased and began using the Typing Tutor 12 software. I must say that the software was a good tool in helping me improve my typing skills. The graphics and interface enabled to grasp my deficiencies and improve upon them, besides, it actually made the entire process fun. I am even contemplating buying the Typing Tutor Junior for my kids so they get a good foothold and are able to develop their skills faster. The best feature I liked was the flexibility to use it on both my PC at home and my MAC at work, something I gather the others don't provide.

2-0 out of 5 stars Better than Mavis, but not great.
I tried trying Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing v15 and was very dissatified. (Worst user interfaces I've ever encountered and had some serious problems that made it unusable.) I thought I'd give TT12 a try. I was pleased to see that the software ran on both PCs that I have tried, but was once again dismayed with a very poor user interface. I guess it serves its purpose, but the attempt to present a non-traditional UI instead of sticking with a more classic Windows approach fails miserably. The application doesn't appear on the Windows Task Bar and you can forget switching between this application and other applications. Because it isn't a real Windows application, it seems to want to be the only application running. (Why is it that everybody producing typing tutors feel the need to not use standard Windows UI's?) On my laptop, there are some problems wherein the lists of lessons, finger indicator images and buttons are drawn in the correct place on the screen.

I'd have given it one star if I could have given Mavis Beacon less than one. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars not much of use
I thought of presenting this to some one who does not even
know how to use appropriate fingers for typing.
To my disappointment, it does not teach what fingers that
you should be using. It is too simple software, not much of use.

5-0 out of 5 stars TurboTyping is the best!
TurboTyping has really helped me improve my typing. The training feature is great! It tracks my typing in everyday use and I forget it's even there working to help me improve my typing.

1-0 out of 5 stars BEWARE OF THIS PRODUCT!
Though I just finished installing 30 other programs on my computer without a problem, THIS PROGRAM NOT ONLY CRASHED on my Windows 98 computer, but IT CRASHED MY HARD DRIVE and TOLD ME I NEED TO REINSTALL MY OPERATING SYSTEM! When I contacted their tech support, I was told there had been many calls from people having similar problems, and that I needed to not only download and install fonts, but had to download and install 4 OTHER UPDATES, including Internet Explorer, even though this computer would not be connecting to the Internet! If you do not know how to fix problems this program causes, do not buy this product!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Program
I remember this program back when it was the Lobster typing tutor on 5" floppy running on Win 3.X. I've purchased other versions over the years to be compatible with Win 95 & 98, and just recently purchased it again in XP format. The program is simple to use but not sophmoric like Mavis Beacon. I know if I could just dedicate the time necessary on a continual basis I could learn to type using this program without having to constantly look at the keyboard. The music is annoying but is easily turned off. This program saves all your personal settings and goals, and also allows more than one person to learn typing at different levels. It's an all around GREAT typing tutor. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars more details ... please!
i'm from an educational institution and we're looking for typing softwares for grade 4 to 8. i find this typing software interesting because of its price and the comments given by some customers. Can you please secure me additional information on how to purchase this software. Can we avail a classroom package (45-50 users) and don't forget the price quotation. thanks!

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT DEAL
I think that this product is great I bought it and it really works well, besides it is only 2.99 so you don't have to pay thirty bucks for a different software which is just as good. This program allows you to take lessons on learning each key and when you have covered one section you take a test, there are also games and it shows you your improvements and your pecentages of speed and accuracy for each finger and many more tips. I say for only 2.99 this is a great product.

5-0 out of 5 stars GOOD DEAL!
This is a really good deal for the money, I think it is well worth more than the 2.99. It really shows you how to start typing and has practice drills and it tracks your progress after each lesson. It also has lessons for the advanced typer like how to improve your accuracy and speed. And it has 3 typing skills games too. Since Amazon did not provide any info about this CD I will tell you excatly what the back of this program reads: "START TYPING TODAY! TYPING IS THE ULTIMATE TYPING TEACHER! COMBINING EFFECTIVE INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNIQUES WITH EASY-TO-USE MENUS, YOU WILL LEARN TOUCH TYPING QUICKLY & EASILY. TYPING ALSO ADDS FUN AND CHALLENGE TO THE PROCESS OF LEARNING TO TYPE, WITH TIMED TESTS AND EXCITING TYPING GAMES. * INCREAASE YOUR SPEED AND ACCURACY * TRACK YOUR PROGRESS * TEST YOUR SKILLS * ADD FUN TO LEARNING! "makes touch-typing virtually painless"---Home PC" That is what the back reads I hope you find this review helpful. For 2.99 there is not that much to loose, TRY IT!

1-0 out of 5 stars not enough information
I wish there was a bit more information available to me about this product, the fact that this product is only 2.99 is a mute point. I have no idea what it is or isn't capable of based on what is currently being posted.

1-0 out of 5 stars Typing Tutor Crashes
Several years ago I bought Typing Tutor 7 for my daughter. She used it on our Mac and learned how to type, but she had to endure the numerous crashes it caused. Later we bought a PC, and foolishly ordered Typing Tutor 10 thinking that surely a program as faulty as the previous Typing Tutor couldn't stay on the market. We were wrong. We installed the program and my son signed in and tried to get started. The comuter crashed twice in the first 15 minutes and we uninstalled the program and vowed never to buy another Typing Tutor program again!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Tutor in the market
I first used Typing Tutor when its first version came out, many years ago. I was very happy with it then, and have been happy with the subsequent releases. I am a professional software instructor, teaching applications at a university and a college, as well as in the private sector. I have always recommended the Typing Tutor program to students and people in business. Given, virtually everyone now uses the keyboard for some sort of data entry, being good on the keyboard can greatly improve productivity, in the classroom and on the job.

The feedback I have gotten from users, that followed my recommendation, and bought Typing Tutor has always been enthusiastically positive. One owner of an engineering firm, who had been a two-fingered typist, tried it and was so pleased with it, he bought copies for everyone in his company. Being able to type emails, reports, proposals, etc., etc., at 60+ words per minute, rather than 30 or less, makes a substantial productivity improvement - figure how many hours are spent on the keyboard, and what it costs per man-hour, and what can be saved.

I tried Typing Tutor 10, and did not run into the same problem the previous reviewer did, regarding loss of data. It isn't clear, specifically, what could have caused their particular problem. Actually, I think Typing Tutor should be a prerequisite to word processing. I still recommend the product and can assure that anyone using it can only get better if they use it. And they can actually enjoy themselves with the various games as they learn.

3-0 out of 5 stars Typing Tutor10 Gold
Falls short at the wire (using a horse racing expression). Great games for the young at heart who are used to video games. Software allows the new typist to repeat the verbal messages. Downside: Software Problem... (MAJOR) The whole point of learning how to type is to have a starting point and know how you are progressing. After 8 hours of typing, the software lost my data and only retainted my original WPM. (PARTY IS OVER !!!... I was evaluting this for business purposes and this took them out of the game). If you can live with losing this data, you will improve your typing and have a good time. ... Read more
