KTouch

KTouch

KTouch is a touch typing tutor for KDE 4.

KTouch is an aid for learning how to type with speed and accuracy. It provides a sample text to type and indicates which fingers should be used for each key. It comes with lessons for many different keyboard layouts across many different languages. It also has exercises for learning to use a number pad. As the user types, it keeps real-time statistics of how well they do.

A collection of lessons are included for a wide range of different languages and keyboard layouts, and typing statistics are used to dynamically adjust the level of difficulty.

Features include:

  • Supports various keyboard layouts and you can easily add own keyboard layouts
  • Training lectures are included by default (English, German, French ... etc)
  • Add and modify training lectures using the built-in lecture editor
  • Detailed training statistics help you to find possible typing problems (keys that you typed wrong very often)
  • Calculates typing speed and your accuracy on-the-fly and displays them while you type
  • User customizable (including the colour scheme of the program)
  • During training the level can be adjusted automatically according to your typing skill: if you type fast and correctly you will move a level up, otherwise stay in the level or even move down. So you will learn touch typing like playing a game
