Typing tutorials for beginners

by Angeline Booher / December 22, 2003 12:07 AM PST

I have not learned to touch-type, and the time has come. I found one per a Google search that allows the user to set the speed, which seems helpful.

However, it was a download, and I prefer a CD.

My interest lies in home use only. (At at a reasonable price.)

Suggestions?

Thank you.

Angeline

Here is a list of proggies I quickly pulled on downloads -the couple I checked had CD options
http://download.com.com/3120-20-0.html?qt=touch+typing&tg=dl-2015&search=+Go%21+

If these are not suitable I can do a web search using a beaut search program-can even send it via email if you wish to contact me.

I tried to learn touch typing way back about 1959 when I joined the bank here in Australia-decided my 10 thumbs would never be better than 10 thumbs-so I am a very big user of copy and paste and I feel the mouse only method makes it even easier.

Seasons regards.
