TIPP10 – touch typing tutor

TIPP10 is an open source 10-finger touch typing tutor. You can use TIPP10 directly in a web browser or you can download the software version for Linux and other operating systems.

TIPP10 is an intelligent touch typing software. Characters often misspelled will be dictated more often directly. Various visual tools and settings help you learn to use the touch system the correct way.

TIPP10 also supports different keyboard layouts.

Features include:

  • Easy to use and features a clear user interface.
  • Intelligent text selection – the lesson texts react instantly to typing mistakes by repeating mistyped letters more frequently. The system helps eliminate typing mistakes and learn touch typing efficiently
  • Ticker and virtual assistance keyboard – change the font, speed and colour of the text in the ticker to ensure a steady typing flow. Keys and key paths appearing in colour on a virtual keyboard help you to use the right fingers and keep the right starting position.
  • Detailed results – printable comprehensive report that evaluates the lesson.
  • Open lessons and using your own texts – there are open lessons with dictations for specialized topics so that you can familiarize yourself with particular styles such as programming or legal texts. You can also load your own texts into TIPP10 and have them dictated to you.
  • Extensive customization – choose how the lesson will run. You can set the duration of the lesson, how the typing tutor reacts to typing mistakes and which visual aids will support you during the lesson.
  • Play a typing game and expand the program with open lessons or make your own to meet your specific needs.
  • In addition to the QWERTY keyboard layout, users can activate keyboards for Germany, for Switzerland or the alternative Neo, Dvorak and RISTOME keyboards.
  • Platform independent and multilingual.
