If you're trying to design lessons for people to learn to type in a minority language, or even just a language without a lot of computing resources, this is the software for you. You can create typing tutorials for people to work through. Best of all, it's completely independent of language and input method. It should be no more difficult to create lessons for Chinese or Persian or Hindi than for English or Spanish.

Typing Tutor is created with the Qt application framework, released under the GNU Public License. That means, among other things, that you are free to download it and use it, but not to re-sell it.

Qt is a cross-platform framework, so there is the possibility for using this on Mac OS X, Linux, etc. Right now I only have Windows executables because I only have a Windows machine. Perhaps some do-gooder will build versions for other operating systems and send them to me.

Typing Tutor for Windows

Source code

Download the source as a zip file

Or if you're feeling geeky:

git clone

I build in Windows with this, which assumes that Qt is installed and visible in your path:

qmake -config release

Of course your system would have something different from “mingw32-make”—probably just “make”—if you are not building from Windows using MinGW.
