Entertaining Animations and Keyboard Viewer

Typing Pal encourages students to look at the screen while they type. One way of getting them to do this is with the help of an animation panel on the screen that features entertaining animations or a keyboard viewer.

Entertaining Animations Keyboard Viewer
The entertaining animations change according to the keys that are typed, the errors and the final result. When an error is detected, fingers appear above the keyboard showing the finger that should be used to hit the correct key.

To change the display of the animations panel or to hide it completely, refer to Display Options for Activities.

Audio notifications

After each activity, an audio notification tells students whether or not they’ve reached their targets. A perfect activity or a new record are also celebrated with a special sound. If you prefer a silent work environment, don't worry; these notifications can easily be disabled by the student or for all students in the group’s Settings.
