Customer Reviews

Reviewers
Typing Tournament provides children with a fun environment to practise, drill and test their skill at touch typing. Parents liked the manner in which the student is challenged and were impressed with the results.”– The National Parenting Center Reviewers

“Terrific graphics design sets this new EdAlive title apart from all others. Featuring a medieval theme, Typing Tournament takes beginning typists, as well as more experienced users, from basic Home Row instruction to Expert, and anywhere in-between. Users are frequently rewarded with entertaining ‘practice’ games and printable Achievement Certificates. This version also includes an Admin section for teachers to manage groups, or print group results, and is fully network capable. Typing Tournament is extremely flexible, while offering many features, such as a colour-coded keyboard, animated demonstrations, and visual prompts. It combines keys in multiple lessons (vertical key paths, and common English letter strings, as well as home row). Games, drills and tests integrate content in every lesson, and there are 16 distinct sets. The patient, well-timed explanations and demonstrations are clear and easy to follow, and the program is a winner with kids!”– ComputEd Gazette Reviewers

“I am a total novice typist (search and destroy type!), but am enjoying Typing Tournament – I seem to be getting the hang of it quite quickly. I have successfully completed two levels so far and it has been fun and easy to work through. Keep up the good work.” – Delia, Parent
