GNU Typist (typist) is a universal typing tutor. You can learn
correct typing and improve your skills by practising its exercises on
a regular basis. Its main features are:
* It comes with several typing tutorials: in Czech, English (Qwerty,
Dvorak and Colemak keyboards), Russian and Spanish, as well as
simpler exercises in German, French and Norwegian.
* It interprets a simple and intuitive scripting language that
describes typing tutorials. You can easily modify existing
tutorials or create new ones according to your needs.
* Users can navigate through lessons through an easy to use arrow key
based menu interface. 'vi' up, down, left and right keys can be
used too!
