Software, Touch Typing Tutor for the TI99/4A Microcomputer


Buyers of TI computers, including the TI-99/4A, could purchase a variety of software modules, many of them to offer instruction. These were sold in black cases. According to the manual for this program (see 1990.3142.14.01 for the manual), the program "provides flexible, varied drills designed to help you learn basic typing skills if you are a beginner or to polish your touch-typing skills if you are an experienced typist."
