Read The Shareware Net's (TSN) review:

 Touch-Typing is geared both towards the novice who is fed
 up with the 2 fingered approach and the secretary who wants
 to brush up on his/her typing skills. You never feel out of your
 depth as the leaning curve is at your own pace and neither do
 you surcumb to bordom due to the variety of the 15 lessons.
 Audio corrections signal errors, and mistake frequencies are
 counted. You track your progress with 2D and 3D graphs that
 show speed and accuracy. Because multiple users are allowed
 get the entire office to brush up on their typing skills!

 Although the unregistered version only gives you a taster of
 what can be achieved it should be enough for you to realize
 that Touch-Typing is the BEST program of its kind.
