Meanwhile, enjoy our review below about Typesy 2016.
Typesy has more than 400 lessons, games and exercises to help you type faster and more efficiently. This is the best software for adults because of its emphasis on lessons rather than games and achievement-based learning. However, the extensive library of lessons and exercises has value for people of all ages and abilities. This application can be used by up to five users, and since it is cloud-based, you can use it on any computer.
Typesy combines touch-typing exercises with detailed video instruction. Each lesson starts with an instructional video that explains a new typing concept and then demonstrates how to do it. The video is followed by numerous typing exercises to help you develop that particular skill.
This software has nine comprehensive typing courses with more than 400 exercises. Each course focuses on a separate typing skill set or level such as beginner typing, 10-key training and typing accuracy. Within the nine courses, you will find real-world exercises aimed at improving your typing skills. You practice by typing documents found in a professional environment like legal documents, inter-office email and 10-key entries. Typesy also allows you to practice typing and learn at the same time by creating exercises from any article on Wikipedia or thousands of other websites.
Typesy operates on a cloud-storage system. That means you can start a typing course on a Windows laptop at home and finish it on your Mac at work. This software allows up to five users per license, so it is a good fit for households with more than one person – roommates and family members can all use it at the same time.
This typing tutor software has excellent reporting features that help you keep track of your progress through the exercises. The most essential stats to track are accuracy percentage and speed, which is measured in words per minute (WPM). Typesy continually tracks both, as well as your adjusted words per minute. Adjusted words per minute is calculated using a formula that factors the number of errors you made into your speed.
Typesy is one of the best typing programs available because it has a large lesson library and is cloud-based, so you can use it on any computer. In addition, its easy-to-use interface and real-world typing exercises make it the best typing software for adults. However, users of all ages and ability levels can find plenty of content to help improve their typing skills.
