    I know for windows there is Micro Type Pro, but is there anything for free for macs that can help teach you to type? I wanted to teach my mom how to type since she is on the computer all the time.

    I wanted to learn hot to type DVORAK so I searched endlessly for a free way to learn that but I finally found there are no free typing tutors on mac. But, I gave in and payed for Master Key. Its $20 but so worth it. Very good typing tutor in my opinion. I can't say I learned DVORAK because I started but then lost interest, but I was learning very fast...

    The thing that helped me learn to type more than anything else was instant messaging. I took a keyboarding class in high school, and had typed tons of papers, but it wasn't until I really started IMing people that I could touch type with any kind of speed. So, I vote you just spend endless hours IMing your mom from across the house. :)
