Typing Instructor Deluxe: Version 17
If you are looking for the best typing program available for your family, look no further. We spent countless hours evaluating the competition, but everything else we tried was juvenile, stressful, violent, or just plain dumb.

No-nonsense approach to typing
As a busy teaching parent, and with children who feel equally occupied with commitments, we were looking for a no-nonsense approach to typing. Being able to get in, get the lesson done, and move on is a tremendous benefit and with Typing Instructor Deluxe Version 17 you can.

Create your own lessons, add your own music, and even build your own typing plans
Typing Instructor Deluxe offers a variety of typing plans that can be tailored to your skill level and preferences, including a typing plan just for children. Plus, with the "dynamic learning" technology, your child will improve faster because his weak areas will be automatically targeted. With this version you will be able to create your own lessons, add your own music, and even build your own typing plans. Finally, the clincher for us was the dictation feature. Here your child will improve his touch-typing skills by typing as the computer reads aloud a passage to him. As you can guess, some passages are better than others, but this is a great, practical skill, so sort through the essays to find ones that you are comfortable with.

Easiest, most cost-effective method to teach typing
No typing program is perfect and Typing Instructor Deluxe is no exception. We don't care for the arcade games, and some of the music drives us nuts. But you can skip the games and turn off the music and it will not affect the efficiency of the program. Being a competent typist gives children greater job flexibility and allows them to be more productive. Typing Instructor Deluxe Version 17 is the easiest, most cost-effective method to teach this vital skill.

Excellent Choice! September 14, 2010
Reviewer: Larry & StacyáFausett from Lamar,áMOáUnited States  
I bought this some time ago for our children and had to invest in a newer one as computers updated.  It has been the easiest, most efficient way to teach typing and cost effective to boot.  Our eldest is graduating and we have five more to teach.  It is a great program that is fun and inexpensive.  It allows them to keep working on areas of weakness, and keeps records of work done.  It is even fun for Grandma.  We couldn't get her to quit playing "Shark Attack".  The games make practice fun.  So different from the boring way I learned in public school.  WE LOVE IT!

An updated review December 4, 2009
Reviewer: Barton Home School from Oklahoma City, OK United States  
I have already put my review on here, but read another review about how you should not buy unless you have an older system. We just bought a new computer with Vista, we are awaiting Windows 7 to be shipped to us, and on Windows Vista it is working wonderfully. I actually purchased this several years ago, and still every computer we have had, laptop, desktops, older, newer we have not experienced any problems. Hope this helps. Blessings

Unlike other programs, Typing Instructor works! September 25, 2009
Reviewer: Kim F. from Old Hickory, TN  
I have tried other typing programs for my children in the past without much success. After reading other reviews, I decided to give Typing Instructor a try.  I have been very impressed.  Each of my children can work at their own pace and level.  Their progress can be seen immediately at the end of each lesson.  This is such an encouragement to them.  My son's typing skills have improved to the point of him being able to type all his book reports and essays.  Thanks for a great program!
