Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing
Mac OS Education
Mavis Beacon's avatar is so realistic in the Ultimate Mac Edition 2.0 from Software MacKiev, that you'll think she's inside your computer, cheering you on. And there's plenty to cheer about in this new edition. User progress, scores, and settings can now be stored in iCloud for instant access from any computer with this version of Mavis Beacon installed, and Lion full-screen capability is completely supported.

Get smarter while you practice typing up-to-the minute news feeds. Type an entire novel for practice, with the full text of dozens of classic novels, from Treasure Island to Les Miserables.
Take a break with 17 gorgeous high-resolution action typing games, the most games ever in a Mavis Beacon edition.

Also includes personalized progress reports, dictation practice, a custom lesson creator, ergonomic videos, posture exercises and much more.
