Since the release of Rapid Typing Tutor 3.0, there have been several enhancements to the general user interface. In other words, there are several features you will encounter as you use Rapid Typing Tutor 3.0 that are not explained in the Userís Guide (that you see when you click F1 while using the application). Each note in this document illustrates a new feature and gives a brief explanation.
Simple Lesson View
When you are completing a lesson, you can have a blank background behind the displayed letters. This is called the Simple Lesson View. Click the first of three icons located in the top right hand part of the screen. Click on the button that is highlighted in red (see above).
Background Lesson View
When you are completing a lesson, you can have a graphical but stationary (e.g. non-animated) background behind the displayed letters. This is called the Background Lesson View. Click the second of three icons located in the top right hand part of the screen. Click on the button that is highlighted in red (see above).
Animation Background
When you are completing a lesson, you can have a fully animated background behind the displayed letters. This is called the Animation Background View. Click the third of three icons located in the top right hand part of the screen. Click on the button that is highlighted in red (see above).
Show Lesson Editor
The third button in the left pane of the Rapid Typing application lets you customize your typing exercises. Specifically, you first create a course and then by clicking the top icon in the course (highlighted above in red) you can create lessons that designate the course. In the dialog box that appears, type in the lesson name and new section you want to cover and then click OK to save. You have just added a new lesson to the course.
Course Set-Up
When setting up a course, simply click on the third icon in the left pane of the applicationís general display. From here, you can then customize the course to meet your individual needs. The left pane of this window shows course information and the right pane shows information about the text you will be typing, as well as properties of the text.
New Course Button
Another way that you can create a course is to click on the "plus" (+) icon next to the main course text box displayed in the lower part of the left pane. This button, when clicked, opens a dialog box that lets you create a course by typing in the name of the course. After entering this information, click OK to save.
Show Lesson Text Box
Just above the virtual keyboard you will see a text box that shows you the lesson that you are completing. In this case, the lesson selected includes the letters "a", "s", and "l". You will only be asked to type the letters that are displayed in this text box.
Show Lesson Statistics
After you complete your typing lesson, you can click on the second icon in the left pane of the general application (that looks like a graph) and this button will activate a statistics window that will summarize your typing results. It will show the date, title characters per minute, accuracy level, and duration of the lesson. All this information is displayed in the right pane of the displayed statistics window.
Delete Lesson
Just above the virtual keyboard you will see a button with a red "X". If you click on this button, a dialog box will appear asking you to confirm the deletion of the present course you are using. Click OK to continue or click No to abort this request. Remember that you most likely will want to delete individual lessons from within courses but not delete courses because they potentially have many lessons you have completed, along with saved statistics and performance information.
