The lessons provide practice on all the letter keys and the most frequently used punctuation keys. All instructions , technique graphics, and practice copy appear on the screen to guide the students. "I use five different keyboarding programs in my typing and computer operations classesTyping Tutor II, Typing Tutor ΙΠ, Alphabetic Keyboarding, Type Attack, and Master Type. Alphabetic Keyboarding is the most effective because of its graphics, skill-building drills, and feedback techniques. It allows students to go at their own pace, recognize areas of weakness, work on a specific skill, and measure progress at any time during the program. It is unique in that it actually shows the students how their fingers should move on the keyboard." —Bob TogioL· For more information, contact Gallaudet Bookstore , 800 Florida Avenue, NE, Washington, DC 20002. 77ns information was submitted by Bob TogioL·, Oregon State School for the Deaf, Salem, OR.
