What is KAZ Touch Typing?

KAZ's inclusive Mainstream and SEN/Dyslexia touch typing software have proven so effective that it has been nominated for several academic awards. Available in two editions, Junior (6- 11) and adult (ages 11+). Our schools' edition incorporates both options.

The course is a tutorial in itself and consists of 5 modules - pupils start at the top and work their way through each module in order.

The program is presented in a simple and light-hearted manner and has three main attributes:

1. A proven Accelerated Learning teaching method incorporating 'brain balance', teaching the skill quickly and easily. The method uses five scientifically structured phrases to teach the a-z keys in bite-size modules.

2. A comprehensive and easy-to-use teacher admin panel allows for uploading spellings of the week or problematic words, enabling pupils to learn to spell whilst touch typing.

3. A specialised ©Preference Screen developed with guidance from the Dyslexia Research Trust minimises visual disturbances and tailors the course for maximum visibility and comfort for pupils who need it.

All licences include both primary and secondary options.

KAZ works across various devices, and being online can be accessed from school and home, allowing learning to continue beyond the classroom. A download edition is also available when internet access is restricted or unavailable.

Due to numerous teacher requests, we have now released the new 'National Ofqual Regulated Touch Typing Qualifications' (Level 1 - 3 credits and Level 2 - 5 credits) in partnership with OpenAwards.

Recommended Usage

The course comprises of five easy to follow modules, which can be broken down to suit attention span or time allowing.

Module 1- Flying Start – Explains how the course works and only takes a few minutes.

Module 2 - The Basics – teaches the a-z keys using 5 scientifically structured phrases. This module can be broken down into five 15/20 minute lessons.

Module 3 - Just Do It - offers additional vocabulary to build ‘muscle memory’.

Module 4 - And the Rest – teaches the number and punctuation keys.

Module 5 - Speed Builder – 15/20 minutes of practice per day will help build speed and accuracy, showing results within a couple of weeks.

All licences include a teacher’s lesson plan.

Refocusing the attention on digital fundaments will add to the increased digital skills, digital literacy and digtial well being - the ability to be create written content is something we all can and will do so why not have a strong foundation in typing skills to set up your potentail for success. Take the time to invest in this skill and it will pay off in vast amounts in all aspects of your life.

Trevor Boland found KAZ Touch Typing:
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Helps with email writing - a lot of emails come my way
  • Slightly reduces attainment gap
  • Slightly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    Typing skills can contribute to more effecitve ways to create written content and in turn lessen time on assignments so as a consequences this ability to be a more effective typer can increase efficency and success and wellbeing.

Apr 2023

It is a fantactic program. Step by step, easy to learn. All you have to do is put in the time. I am 48, and never had any experience with touch typing, now after only 5 months, I am at 35-40 words per minute. My goal is to be at 50 by the end of the next month. Somtimes you can teach an old dog new tricks. Additionally, the staff responses to any issue's that I have had has been quick and sorted within days. I never felt any kind of runaround, they generally listened AND took action to responded promptly to any of my concerns. Fantastic product and fantastic company!

Shawn Miller found KAZ:
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Just being able to think and type is huge. I never realized how much time it would save.
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    the differance between touch type and old style is night and day.
  • Moderately improves behaviour or wellbeing
    It feels good to achieve a better score; you can moniter your own progress and actually see the results
  • Slightly improves attainment

I have been using KAZ for the past few years individually. I have had a substantial improvement with my typing speed and accuracy. I never typed by touch and was typing by sight. Since using this system, I have learned to touch type and my speed and accuracy improve every day.

Used KAZ’s Mainstream and SEN/Dyslexia Touch Typing Tutor for 4-6 months

Mar 2021

Kaz Type is a well presented and proven method for developing touch typing skills. I would highly recommend this to parents who are wanting their children to develop typing skills.

Michael found KAZ’s Mainstream and SEN/Dyslexia Touch Typing Tutor:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    My 11 year old daughter learned how to touch type using Kaz Type in only a few weeks. The software was engaging and we found she looked forward to the daily sessions. Being a self taught typist myself, I was amazed at how quickly my daughter progressed to fluently touch typing her homework.
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    In school, it is expected that the majority of work will be completed and submitted electronically. Being able to touch type gives students a huge advantage over their peers and allows them to produce work faster and more accurately. Having touch typing skills will serve our children well not only in education, but as they move into employment this will be a vital and sought after skill by employers.
  • Significantly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    I found that now my daughter can touch type, she is able to complete her written assignments more quickly and accurately than before.
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload

It is one of the few touch typing platforms which cater for a neuro-diverse audience and that is very important to us. They have a lovely balance of video, audio and kinaesthetic input.

I absolutely love Kaz-Type. As a proficient typist myself, in an age when working from home and home learning has been forced upon every family on a global scale, digital literacy is as critical as reading, writing and being fluent in functional arithmetic. Having keyboard skills is central or core to everyone's digital futures.
