My mistake - It does work under Lion but the preference window is stuck to the top of the screen and the first couple of lines are in small font and get bigger as the window progresses.

I checked out all the tutors available and this one seemed the best value for money but it doesn't seem to work properly under 10.t. The preferences windows are stuck at the top of the screen and cant be altered (Mac Pro E2008/Dell 27" Monitor)

You don't need an application

If you want to learn touch typing you can practice it online. Go to: http://www.sense-lang.org/typing/

Master Key is a fantastic program. It's extremely easy to install. The user interface is designed very well to work on Mac and PC. The layout and colors used make it an appealing program for adults and children. The Typing Tutor documents all attempts at drills and can produce graphs and statistics of your results. I can't fault the program and would highly reccommend it to any family/ school or adult who wishes to improve their typing skills

The biggest flaw in this program, in my opinion, is the drill always place a single space after a period. It leaves hand watchers like myself, who already understand punctuation making not only an ungodly amount of errors, but killing our WPM.

There is an option for single or double spaces in the preferences

The standard has changed. In her excellent book "The Mac is not a Typewriter," Robin Williams explains that double-spaces after closing punctuation is no longer necessary with proportional fonts, and can actually cause problems when doing page layout.

Couldn't get it to work. 'Drills' wouldn't load, despite some minutes of trying. So I've given up.
(I'm using OS 10.3).
If this can be fixed, I'm still willing to give it a try.

The application Master Key must be in the same folder as the Drills folder in the single-user configuration. Please contact me directly for tech support.

Nice little program with an affordable price tag. I'm using it to learn the Dvorak layout. Even has a little game to play.
