This product has a program "glitch" that won't allow you past the beginner "E/I" letter training stage. The manufacturer knows about it and they are planning a "patch" to get around it in the distant future. Their only solution is to "retest" as a new user and perhaps qualify for the next level...but I have not been successful. DON"T BUY THIS PROGRAM!

This program, like previous editions of Mavis Beacon, would be an awesome tool to learn typing. Unfortunately, it has a bunch of bugs that are well-known to the company and have been documented by many users online, including the video not working, and the statistics on the typist's progress, such as their word-per-minute score, suddenly becoming reversed! For example, I was typing along at 65 WPM with a 97% accuracy, and suddenly it said I had -150 WPM and -200% accuracy! (or something like that). I really hope Encore puts out a better version of this product soon because I loved past versions and they no longer work on my new computer.

Four members of our family have used the typing teacher for several weeks and all of us have improved dramatically. It is easy to get started and pick up any time. It's fairly painless learning.
