How to begin lessons

At the beginning of the first lesson (the «Current lesson» button tab-button), you can select course and lesson on the Toolbar, there are two drop-down lists on the left side, shown below:

Current lesson toolbar 1

  • Select a course, depending on your skills and experience.
  • Choose the lesson you'd like to study. Lessons are categorised by type, for example Introduction and Beginner courses have: Basics, Shift keys, Digits and symbols, Numeric pad sections.
  • When everything is ready, put your fingers in the base position shown on the keyboard and press any key to start the lesson.
  • Virtual keyboard will help a novice find the necessary characters on the keyboard. You should establish and maintain a rhythm while typing. This means that keystrokes should come at equal intervals.

Status bar

Status bar suggests which fingers you should use to type the current character and has 2 progress bars above the text:

  • The green progress bar (lower) shows you the percentage of completion for the current lesson.
  • Yellow progress bar (upper) reflects the acceptable time for typing a single character.

When the yellow progress bar runs out, RapidTyping records this as a Slowdown mistake. You can customise it in the Course options, Metronome area.
