Whatever you use your computer for, it is difficult to avoid doing at least some typing. Many jobs involve a great deal of typing and by learning to touch type you can greatly speed up your workflow and help to reduce the risk of repetitive strain injury.

There are a number of typing programs available for Windows, but they tend to be restrictively expensive - something that puts many people off trying them out. Rapid Typing Tutor is available completely free of charge and aims to make the learning process as much fun as possible. Designed with both children and adults in mind, a bright, colourful interface is used to present each of the tests.

A virtual keyboard is displayed on screen to indicate which fingers should be used to press which keys, and at the end of each test you will be presented with a results screen which shows you not only how fast you have been typing, but also your level of accuracy and what sort of rhythm you are using.

The tests get progressively more difficult and the use of a records board make the process of learning similar to playing a game - as well as learning to type faster and more accurately, there is also great pleasure to be gained from beating a personal best.
 

Verdict:

Proving that learning need not be an arduous tasks, Rapid Typing Tutor makes it easy and fun to improve your typing skills.
