Hell eyah!!! [bug splat!]


#4

Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing was the first one I used.


#5

Typing of the Dead - do it! It works wonders and its fun, lol.


#6

Friggin’ “Mario Teaches Typing” back in the early nineties.
I’ve played some “Typing Maniac” recently…not really a teaching aid but it is good speed practice.


#7

Seconded. I remember Mario Teaches Typing as a kid, but I really didn’t learn how to type from it. I still play Typing of the Dead sometimes for a cheap laugh. I love how they have those mounted keyboards


#8

Mario? haha! I remember that! I was thinking about getting it again, but a friend
of mine was totally against it. He says it really doesn’t teach you how to type.


#9

Any MUD, preferably one with PvP.
Nothing teaches you to touch type quick like the incentive of keeping your character alive.

3rdsies for Typing of the Dead!


#11

4th for typing of the Dead!

Speaking of which, does it have a Mac version? My dad just got a MacBook and wants to improve his typing.
