Arabic Keyboard Typing Tutor
Arabic Keyboard Typing Tutor is written in order to increase your Arabic typing speed, through teaching the basics of how to put your hand on to the keyboard and give some training examples.
Each lesson teaches some extra keys, and there is also a practice, if it is chosen, one can practice the previous keys learned from the previous lessons. The sentences chosen in the practice mode are mostly meaningful, some of them are Arabic poems, some are Arabic common sentences and some are wise sentences.
There are a lot of computer programs which teach you how to type using the keyboard. However, only a few teach you how to type using an Arabic keyboard. Arabic Keyboard Typing Tutor is one of them. This software is intended for people who need to learn how to type Arabic words.
The program has a simple interface, and can be used by up to 6 users. Each of the users has separate statistics about his or her typing skills. A neat game is provided with the application, which helps you learn while having fun. Arabic letters appear on your screen, and you have to type them immediately after a surrounding green circle appears.
You have access to 13 lessons, each one teaching you how to use another 2-4 keys of your Arabic keyboard. A hand appears on the right side of the user interface, showing you which finger to use when typing the next character. I dont understand Arabic so I cannot tell you whether the questions chosen by the publisher for the tests have any meaning. However, from what Ive seen, you have to use most of your keyboard keys to type them.
Drawbacks / flaws: This software is very unstable. I tried keeping the same key pressed to finish my typing test, and the program crashed. Also, if you want to stop the typing game, bundled with the application, you cannot close its window no matter what you do.
