Question about Encore Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing Deluxe 20 Full Version for PC

2 Answers

I can't get mavis beacon teaches typing platinum version 20 to load on my computer. It says it failed to initialize the program, then recommends that I change the settings for my video card and says that if that doesn't work then I need to replace my video card. I have changed my video card to a more updated and powerful one but it still does'nt work. Please help me.

    I do not have the software for the Nvidia card that I have installed. I now have windows 7 on my computer. The program worked when I had windows xp and vista installed on it.

Hi,
The software is just not compatible with the operating system you are using. You need to check if you are using windows 7 64-bit version. Because if it worked earlier with the same video card then it is not an issue with the card. If it is windows 7 64-bit then the software is just not compatible with this operating system.
Good Luck!

Hmm, its possible you just need to load the software for your video card. Do you know which Video Card you have in the machine now? Also what version of Windows is it? Have you used Mavis Beacon successfully in the past on this computer?

Thanks
Tim

SOURCE: I can't get "Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing"

im not sure i understand the problem or why you cant put your name in to mavis's lessons
it might be your pop up blocker or your firewall settings
however this free mavis and there are other freeware keyboard tutorials you might try

If you're looking to boost your typing speed and accuracy, TypingMaster Typing Test can provide the repetitive practice you need. Just don't expect this freeware program to give you any coaching. In a typical session, you might start with the rudimentary (and rather dull) warm-up games and move on from there to the full-blown typing tests. TypingMaster offers only one kind of testing method--retyping a set text--though you can break up the monotony by supplying your own TXT files. The program can store results for several users and track their progress over several tests. At the end of each test, the program gives a brief performance evaluation, though we wish it also gave custom-tailored advice based on our typing patterns. Unfortunately, that feature is restricted to the for-pay version. In sum, TypingMaster Typing Test offers nothing to distinguish it from countless similar titles, and earns only a lukewarm recommendation from us.

Rapid Typing Tutor may be a good program to help novice typists improve, but experienced typists looking to increase their speed may be frustrated by the program's interface
hope this will help you
