Typing With Mavis Who?

Mavis Beacon is just like the woman that might have tried to teach you typing skills when you were in high school. She is a good teacher, she puts on the pressure if you don't work hard enough and rewards you with some fun if you do well. This might not sound like your typical typing-tutor program, but Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing isn't your normal teacher.

Split between your normal classroom typing sessions and an interesting road racing game, Mavis has three levels of teaching: Never seen a typewriter, Somewhat Good, and Expert. Once selected, Mavis adjusts the difficulty according to how you progress through the 50 or so lessons. The program is completely icon/menu driven, so it is suitable for children learning how to type.

Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing is nicely packaged with a complete user manual and supplement for the Atari ST.
