Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing
Keep your finger on the pulse while you practise your typing with four times as many up-to-the-minute news feeds as before. Type today’s weather forecast from The Weather Channel, the latest science report from NASA or the top news stories from BBC News.
With even more classic novels to keep you engrossed as you type — from Around the World in Eighty Days to Moby Dick. Bookmarks are placed automatically as you pause or stop the lesson, so you can always find your place right away.
Practice typing the lyrics from your favourite music while you listen to the same songs in your iTunes® playlists!

- Now you can easily set up automatic reminders in iCal to make sure you get in the practice time you need – up to three times a day!
