QuickQWERTY has been completely rewritten from scratch and its source code and online tutor are now available at new URLs.
You can practice touch typing with the online tutor application at http://quickqwerty.com/.
The source code of QuickQWERTY can be now found at http://github.com/susam/quickqwerty.
QuickQWERTY 0.1 has been released. It now has a complete set of typing lessons. Units 16 to 21 are the new lessons introduced in this release. These lessons train the user to type numbers and thus make the set of lessons complete.
Another important change that has been made in this release is the minimum typing speed that is considered satisfactory to move on to the next lesson. Previously, the software used to warn the user to try the lesson again if he couldn't type it at a speed of 200 characters per minute or greater. This was discouraging for beginners because beginners rarely reach this speed easily and thus, the warning by the software was discouraging. For a beginner, speed is not very important. Accuracy is more important than speed for a beginner. So, the minimum speed required to move to the next lesson has now been set as 50 characters per minute.
This new release, version 0.0.6, does not have any new units. This release only fixes issues. Units for covering the numeric keys is still a pending task in this project.
QuickQWERTY is a typewriting trainer written by Susam Pal <http://susam.in/>. This software trains the user to type correctly by using the right finger for the right key. Once the user completes all the units properly, he/she should be able to type any English text without looking at the keyboard.
