This was a disappointment. It was classed as usable for Mac OS X, but it doesn't open, just keeps asking you to reinstall, so my young grandchild was very upset. Guess you should only buy software for Apple from the App store

HASH(0xa65c5ccc) out of 5 stars Problems on Mac Feb. 12 2011
By DH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: CD-ROM
Just purchased Typing Instructor for Kids Platinum
5.0 (Mac). My iMac (Mac OS 10.6.6) is brand new and working fine.
Online download went fine. Program opens but freezes before it
gets started, requiring a 'force quit' to exit. The error message is:
TypeError: Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a
null object reference.

The company offers no technical support by phone, only by email. Email exchange over the past week has been "minimalistic" (one liners at best). Problem has not been resolved over 4 email exchanges.

I am a home educator and I was looking for a Typing Product appropriate for my younger children. I did some research on [...] and I found Typing Instructor Platinum for Kids. I was concerned that it may not be compatible with our Mac but it was... and it works great! My children love the games, and I love their typing improvement!

HASH(0xa6da7174) out of 5 stars Your child will learn typing with this software! Sept. 13 2010
By Frankie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: CD-ROM Verified Purchase
My 8 year old child really enjoyed getting this about 6 months ago, and is typing maybe 15 words/minute by now with intermittent but regular practice (using this software and playing the games it offers). Will be way ahead of the class when they start "keyboarding" (as they call it now) in a few weeks. The games are fun...here come the sharks, quick, type that word to eliminate them! Hard to explain but they are very kid-friendly and all I can say is I've hardly had to help, and my child knows most of the keyboard/letter locations already. Highly recommended...runs OK on a little older Mac too, 10.4 OSX.

HASH(0xa6da715c) out of 5 stars Great program; works on OS 10.9 March 31 2014
By Dianna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: CD-ROM Verified Purchase
I bought this for my son to practice typing. It works great on system 10.9.2. We tried to install it on an older machine (10.3), but it says it needs at least system 10.4 to run.

My seven-year-old son has spent quite a lot of time practicing typing since we've bought this software. He loves it! There is a large variety of games and learning activities. They are well done.

One issue that you may care about but we do not is that this program does not fill the whole screen: the background is blacked out and the program uses a small window in the center of the screen. I personally think this is good, as it's easier to focus on a small area when you're learning.

We have been using this program for my son since second grade (now starting 4th). We've had only positive experiences with it. He's making steady progress. He hasn't gotten bored with the practice games. I highly recommend this! We also have no problems using it on our iMac.
