    I'm a hunt and pecker without the hunt part, I don't need to look at the keyboard to type but I do type with two or three fingers usually. Recently I've decided I'd like to get rid of this bad habit because it's tough on my wrist and fingers which ache after typing a lot -- can anyone here recommend any good software for helping me to relearn how to type the right way? Thanks.

    I learnt how to type with Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing. My mum used to force me to use that software before I could play any games on the PC. She said that I would thank her one day when I could properly touch type...

    ...she was right, as always. :)

    I remember Mavis Beacon. I never took it seriously though, and I still have a bad typing style. I always wanted to get typing of the dead too, but never did.

    Does anyone know a good modern version of the same basic thing.
