Type a Novel for Practice
We've added the full text of dozens of classic novels from Treasure Island to Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables. Bookmarks placed automatically allow you to come back to the same place in the novel that you left off.

Mavis Avatar
The world’s number one typing instructor comes alive in this new edition when she speaks to you as an avatar during your typing lessons.

Dvorak Keyboard
We think August Dvorak would be mighty pleased that the keyboard he introduced in 1936 would be used by the world’s fastest typists. Now you can try out the Dvorak keyboard too - as an option to the traditional QWERTY keyboard in this new edition.

iCal Reminders
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!

Export Creature Movies!
Create an animal or a fantasy creature in the Creature Lab Game, then export it as a QuickTime movie to post on the Web or send to a friend. Typing practice was never this much fun!

Floating Typing Gauge
Measure your typing speed in any application with this new floating menu bar utility.

Track Your Progress. Chart Your Success!
Mavis Beacon tracks your progress step by step and points out the keys you need to concentrate on. And when you pass a major typing milestone you can print out a certificate from the Mavis Beacon Institute.
