New Vision Concepts
New Vision Concepts is proud to present EZ Typing Tutor. Designed specifically for users with vision impairments, EZ Typing Tutor provides all the tools needed for users to learn to type or to enhance their existing typing skills.
EZ Typing Tutor offers progressive lesson levels. It can speak test strings. It provides finger placement guides for locating characters on an on-screen keyboard. And, it provides a plot of user performance over time.
|This short video will demonstrate how easy EZ Typing Tutor is to use.|
Using EZ Typing Tutor
|Using EZ Typing Tutor is very simple. Just follow these steps:
That's it! To review any typing errors you might have made, just press Ctl-Shift-E.
The shortcut Ctrl-G can be used to Start a test and the shortcut Ctrl-S can be used to Stop a test.
|There are currently four levels of typing difficulty that the user can access.
Finger Placement Guide
|EZ Typing Teacher can display an on-screen keyboard which will sequentially speak and highlight the locations of test string characters on the keyboard. Just press "Learn" during a test to activate the on-screen keyboard.
The keyboard keys are colored to identify the finger a user should use when pressing a key.
When a Shift is required, such as for a capital A, both the A key and the Shift key are highlighted.
|When users complete a test, the test results are added to the user history. The users' performance history can be displayed as shown in this image.
WPM scores of 5 or less are assumed to be an invalid/interrupted test and are not added to the history.
|The following settings are available. These enable the user to tweak how EZ Typing Tutor looks or responds to user inputs. The Help icon on the toolbar will display this list, along with the current value of the settings.
There is no toolbar access to these settings because they tend to be set just once, particularly when a user first uses EZ Typing Tutor. Using keyboard shortcuts for these significantly reduces the visual complexity of EZ Typing Tutor.
On-Screen Keyboard Settings
|EZ Typing Toolbar allows the user to access primary functions. Access to additional functions and to settings are available using various keyboard shortcuts, as shown below.
Pressing Help in EZ Typing Tutor will also display this list.
