Improves your typing accuracy and speed through a series of tasks. The tool includes exercises and educational games for you to practice with as well as a tutorial and a word processor. It trains you in alphabetic keyboarding as well as numeric keyboarding and makes you more effective in the use of the numeric keypad.

The MicroType software is a keyboarding program that consists of a tutorial, reinforcement activities, educational games, and a word processor. All of these components are combined in one comprehensive package that will help the student to master the basic keyboarding skills.

This application also includes a new feature called Web Reporter, which enables the student’s distance-learning program by allowing the instructor to access the student’s keyboarding reports through the Internet.

Alphabetic Keyboarding — Includes 20 lessons that teach the alphabetic keys, shift keys, SPACE BAR, ENTER/RETURN, CAPS LOCK, TAB, and the basic punctuation keys. Every lesson includes several different activities to learn new keys, combine keys, improve keystroking, and build skill.

The Key-A-Shot game challenges the student to improve his/her keyboarding skills. A Lesson Report reflects the student’s performance for each activity.

Numeric Keyboarding — These 16 lessons teach the top-row number keys and the more commonly used symbols. The Numeric Keyboarding section provides the same basic activities as the Alphabetic Keyboarding module. However, the activities that emphasize on building skill include both sentences and paragraphs for the student to key. more
