AmpheType - layout-agnostic typing program
Home Page: Project Gutenberg
Platform: Windows 2000/XP/2003 Server, ( Mac OS X, Mac OS 9, Linux )
Licence: Freeware, $0 USD
Advanced typing program - import texts, auto-generate lessons, detailed statistics, etc. Amphetype is a layout-agnostic typing program aimed at people who don't need an on-screen keyboard, but would still like to improve their speed and accuracy.
Main AmpheType advantages
- WPM, accuracy, and viscosity (as the opposite of fluidity) statistics on texts, words, keys, and trigrams. Historical data can be grouped in several different ways (by days, averages of 10, etc.).
- Advanced lesson generation: auto-review slow and mistyped words after every text or generate custom lessons to practice problem words, keys, trigrams, etc.
- You can generate text fragments to type from Project Gutenberg or any other plain text source to practice typing with your favorite novel. There's even an option that lets you type texts in order, fragment by fragment. Read a book with your fingers!
This has really improved my typing speed (by 20%). More than that, it has improved my typing accuracy.
Quite entertaining, too!

My daughter is 7 and plays vidoe games. If she can do that...she can learn to type... She's doing a great job with the help of Typing Tutor. Thanks!
