2-0 out of 5 stars Not that great!
This program is basically good for learning except that it is almost impossible to get to the lessons you want, especially if you want to review. It kept giving me tests on letters I hadn't learned. It is frustrating and I wouldn't recommend it.

4-0 out of 5 stars I am typing better!
I would of rated this 5 stars. I only rated it 4 stars because on the 10 key by touch test, it will not measure you in key strokes per hour (KPH) it only tells you in words per minute (wpm). Many interesting games to keep you motivated! Plus you can download free updates when you register online. The box I received had a [$$$] rebate included good til 30 days following purchase. Ease of use software, manual included!

1-0 out of 5 stars Trouble from the start!
I purchased this this program in order to brush up on my typing and to improve my speed and accuracy, but now ,unfortunately, I will be returning it. Here's why>

Typing Instructor Deluxe from Individual Software gave me problems from the moment I installed it. The trouble I've had with it is that 1)The partial installation feature is broken and it gives you a cryptic error message before crashing the program. 2)If you attempt to get around this problem too forcefully, it causes Windows to crash. 3)The full installation works, but it gobbles up 500MB of disk space! 4)Customer service is non-existant: you can't get them to answer their phone, and their website is down.

I can say that when fully installed it looked OK -- lots of multimedia stuff and games. But the exercises were strictly rudimentary, and there was just one for each lesson. This will bore you to death if you already know how to type. If you don't yet know how, you'll just be throwing your money away.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Typing Instruction
This is a very complete and up to date program that can be continual updated via the Internet. Packed with valuable information, tons of games, and expert instruction, it is far better than Mavis Beacon's outdated program. It is designed for Windows 2000, Me, and XP, and requires a reasonably good system to take full advantage of its multimedia features. Finally, the whole program can be loaded onto the hard drive, so you don't have to insert the CD each time you practice. Something for everyone from ages 8 and up, beginner to expert.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very nice; lots of different aspects and games.
I had learned how to type rather well a few years back, but didn't use my skills enough to keep them up to par. So I bought Typing Instructor because, first, it was a good price, and, second, I had heard it had gotten some good reviews. It was very easy to install and use right away. I really like it because you can set your own goals, so no matter if you are a beginner or just a little rusty (like me), you can easily adapt your program accordingly. There are a lot of different games and exercises, plus a program to properly use the numeric keypad. I would give this program 5 stars and recommend it to anyone in need of a little typing assistance. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Program!
I have to confess that if I had read the prior reviews first, I might have missed out on this product. Actually, we have tested every major typing program and, in fact, own quite a few. This particular one though has become a big favorite in my household. This program gives you the choice of doing traditional drills, typing completely customized lessons accompanied by a wide musical selection, or playing one of several arcade-style games. My 11 y.o. son, who up to this point was doing two- fingered typing, achieved 27 wpm the first day he used it. He has played it obsessively all week and is now up to 35 wpm. When he's not playing it, my 15 y.o. daughter, who happens to already be very fast (116 wpm)plays with it. She enjoys the games.

Unlike some other reviewers, we have had no problems either running or installing this program. (We have WindowsME.)

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Program
I have purchased 7 or 8 different typing programs ranging from those targeted for children and those just for adults. This will be the last program I will purchase. It is versatile enough to appeal to children as well as adults.I did not have any trouble installing it. If I had read the reviews prior to having purchased it, I would have missed the best typing instructor software yet. I only read the reviews out of curiosity when purchasing the program online for my 75 yrear old mother. (She has just gone online and wants to improve her typing.)

4-0 out of 5 stars Its better than most typing games
this has a travel theme you can play games set your words per minute take tests and practice whatever letters you want it has some really cool games though

5-0 out of 5 stars Great learning tool!
This is a great tool for anyone wanting to learn to type, or to sharpen their typing skills. My wife used it and learned quite quickly with surprising accuracy and speed.

It gives you immediate feed back on your typing speed and accuracy, so you'll know how you've improved. There are also a lot of interesting articles that are used for typing exercises, so you're not just typing corny things like "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog."

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for kids
My nine-year old son tried this at school and bugged us for weeks to get it at home so that he could practice. He has set his initial goal at 10 words per minute -- he's currently at 7 words per minute and improving quickly. Typing Instructor makes it really easy to track his improvement. For him, at least, this is not treated as educational software even though he knows that this software is actually teaching him how to type. The games keep him thoroughly engaged as he works on practicing his skills. Anything that can teach a child a skill like this while he also has fun is worth its weight in gold.

With regards to some of the other reviews, with our Windows 98 system, we have not experienced any issues with software installation or other installability resulting from this app. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars A Poor Typing Tutor Program
I was very disappointed with this program. Problems:

1) You have to put in the cdrom each time you run the program.
2) You have to watch the intro credits and exit credits each time you run it - there is no way to bypass them. This adds almost two minutes of useless fluff to every session.
3) The graphics and sound are distracting, and are not helpful in any way. There are 3D graphics showing finger placement that I found confusing. I just couldn't tell which finger was doing what. The program pauses every so often to give fairly useless comments.

After a few lessons I gave up. I've tried other typing tutor programs in the past, and I'll go back to them.

1-0 out of 5 stars Defective Software
Like the other reviewer Mavis Beacon 12 froze at the last beginner lesson. Rather than mess around with this obviously defective product I'm trying another developers'. My computer is an IBM T40 running the latest version of XT Professional.

3-0 out of 5 stars shawn weil
If you started with mavis 5 and your still buying them through mavis 12, maybe you should just give up on learning to type....

1-0 out of 5 stars Freezes Beginners Out
This program is set to freeze the screen if the new typist is unable to pass the test for intermediate level. This has caused great frustration for our kids. The program needs to be rebooted each time. I only found the solution to this by going to the Broderbund website. Broberbund seems to think rebooting is a simple solution for beginners. I find this program difficult for left handed typist. It gives the intermediate test immediately after the lesson for the ,and. These are two difficult skills for left handers. It also freezes in other places and then does not restart where I left off. This is just a poorly written program.

5-0 out of 5 stars The cover doesn't lie!
I bought this software on 8/16/2002, in effort to boost my typing skills. I type primarily with one hand due to my disability; and I needed to refresh myself on the techniques of one-handed typing (which I learned when I was a junior in high school 5 years ago.) Before purchasing this software, I was at a speed of a mere 12 words a minute, I needed to get back up to at least 30 wpm, which is half the speed I was in high school. Today, 8/20/2002, I am up from 12 wpm to 30-35 wpm! I am confident that within the next few days I will be back to 60 wpm! The promise of "Better typing guaranteed' is no understatement! Buy this software if you need to improve your typing skills! Included on the software is a manual for one-handed typing techniques written by Lilly Waters, so if you are one handed typist in search of good software this is for you! I have tried other programs and nothing compares to this! It is worth the price, hands down! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Happy With Download
We recently (today) purchased one of your "downloadable" products online. It is compatible with Windows 95/98/xt/nt/etc... This computer is Windows 98. We downloaded it at least 4 times, each time it asked which program we wanted to open it in? We search for the Vbox\Installers and there is no such file to be found. We are pretty unhappy and would like some help. PS...we saved it to our computer... as the instructions said, under "Programs".

Please let us know what to do, or please refund our money.

Thank you for your help.

5-0 out of 5 stars Keep up the great work
We have this program at the school I go to. I like it very much and purchased it for my home use to stay fresh with my typing and 10 key skills. I finished my Medical Office Skills Class recently with certificates for a Typing Speed of 75 WPM and 10-key at 196 KSPM. I typed before when I was in High School in the 90's so this was just a refresher course but I never did or knew what 10-key was and with this software I love it. Having this software at home and using it when I don't type on an everyday basis will keep me from getting RUSTY (smile). And improve my WPM, and KSPM numbers higher for a more professional and personal achievement.

Thanks for making this software for typing and 10-key so easy and understandable. Not frustrating and complicated like a lot of other software.

I just bought this software, and it does not seem to be working

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy and fun
I purchased this program for my 13 year old son. It was quick and easy to install. The program can help the beginning typist as well as someone like myself, who is an advanced touch typist. Our whole family has started using this program to improve their typing skills. I highly recommend it. Learning to type requires a lot of practice. This program is easy to navigate, easy to use, and comes with different lessons, games, and tests to challenge all skill levels.

4-0 out of 5 stars True to its name
Typing Quick & Easy is exactly that. The lessons are clear and simple, and you can repeat them as often as you want. It automatically suggests more difficult exercises to match your skill level as you advance. I have Windows ME and it runs without a hitch. It took about an hour to download but easier than waiting for the mail. ... Read more
