I still have an old copy of Mavis teaches typing that came with my first PC. Still works pretty well when I need to brush-up every now and then.

The statement [i]"NOTE: If you'd prefer to view this information as a blog post, check out this entry in our Five Apps blog."[/i] is present in every slide show that has a corresponding article. The statement always contains a link to the article, but unfortunately many readers seem incapable of both looking at pictures and reading text, as a good many of them miss it. So, since you missed it the first time, here it is, the link to the article: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/five-apps/five-apps-to-make-you-a-better-typist/1516
