Talking Typing Teacher (TTT)

Talking Typing Teacher, an interactive program for Windows that teaches keyboarding skills. All directions, posture tips, drills and games are narrated entirely with pre-recorded human dialog (as well as shown on-screen). This means that students never listen to hard-to-understand synthesized speech when learning to type with Talking Typing Teacher. Full support for large-print users, multiple student access, and the ability to create customized lessons makes Talking Typing Teacher an invaluable teaching tool for individuals and professionals alike.

Additional Detail for Talking Typing Teacher

Built from the ground up with blind and visually impaired students in mind, Talking Typing Teacher features digitized human speech, which is used everywhere in the program. This means that whether you're navigating menus, changing options, managing dozens of student accounts, or visiting the Help Desk, you'll enjoy listening to Eager Eddie read the screen. What makes TTT so special, however, is that each and every typing lesson or practice session is read aloud with clear, concise pre-recorded dialog. Put quite simply, you won't need to worry about trying to understand synthetic speech when you're learning to type with TTT.

But that's not all! TTT easily accommodates the specific needs of all visually impaired typists. With just a few clicks of the mouse, you can pick from dozens of fonts, change the size of text, and decide how heavy the print should be, (not to mention achieving the ideal color contrast by selecting from thirty different background and text colors). These options ensure that everyone will get the most out of Talking Typing Teacher. Whether you're reading the screen or letting Eager Eddie do the reading for you, you'll have the chance to learn to type, and enjoy doing so!

Talking Typing Teacher Pro is fully network-compatible, and is licensed for use on up to thirty-five computers. This means that you can install the program on one computer (the server), and use it on up to thirty-five remote computers (the clients). This is of inestimable value if you are a teacher because all your students' information is stored in one central location. In this way, you can always keep track of your student's progress, without having to go around to each desk. Because student reports are updated every minute, you can keep tabs on each student in your class from any computer on your network that always has accurate, up-to-date data.

TTT Pro also comes complete with an electronic copy of the comprehensive teacher's instruction kit. This innovative educational package is designed to assist professionals in teaching the Talking Typing Teacher program. It contains a text copy of all three levels of instruction, along with helpful hints and tips for each one. Although the entire curriculum is presented audibly and visually, this kit gives a professional an excellent idea of what is covered in each lesson, allowing for greater adaptability in planning and presentation. The tips at the end of each lesson have been designed to allow the teacher to present students the material and/or additional practice at their own pace and cognitive ability.
