A keyboard training program which I'm designing for my 9 year old son. This is a keyboard training program (i.e. typing tutor) for touch typing, still in it's early days. Goals: * Open source and open community. * Various languages supported (although not right to left nor logographic writing systems - ex. Kanji) (todo) * Various international keyboards supported and probably dvorak keyboards as well. (todo) * Attractive interface. (todo) * Scalable graphics, make the window as small or as large as you like. * Show the beginner typist where they should place their fingers. (todo) * Interesting text for advanced users instead of just random gibberish. Will pull in text from Wikipedia entries, for various languages. (todo) * Beginner levels will have random text, however, and they should focus on common bi-grams and trigrams of the language in question, to build up muscle memory for common key combinations. (todo) * Random text should also start with very simple letter combinations, like two keys close together for training the first time. (todo) * Stats and progression. (todo) * Heatmap of trouble keys for the student. (todo) * Auto build lessons to work on the trouble keys. (todo) * Lessons for the number keys and punctuation marks. (todo) * Start off without the space bar or the backspace key, add these keys later.
