Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing

       Mac OS

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.

Try out the optional Dvorak keyboard, used by the world's fastest typists. Type the lyrics of your favorite songs for practice while listening to your iTunes® playlists. 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. Set up automatic iCal® reminders to make sure you get in the practice time you need, up to three times a day. Also includes personalized progress reports, dictation practice, a custom lesson creator, ergonomic videos, posture exercises and much more.

INTERNATIONAL USERS PLEASE NOTE: This edition was developed for US QWERTY and DVORAK keyboards. For British keyboards, look for the International Edition of Mavis Beacon -- also in the Mac App Store.
