Since the first release of TIPP10 six years ago for Windows, Mac OS and Linux a lot has changed. We’ve invested lots of work and time in TIPP10 in order to develop on from the initial idea of creating an intelligent dictation system into a comprehensive 10-finger touch typing tutor that can stand out from comparable software.
 
The work was worth it:
The free and cross-platform open-source software TIPP10 has spread quickly and has already registered more than 2 million downloads. User feedback has been consistently positive and TIPP10 is now being used successfully in many schools and universities. In November 2011 TIPP10 was rated best in tests by Stiftung Warentest (a well-known German test institute). The fact that TIPP10 managed to win out over all the commercial products is a great motivation for us. We want to make working at the computer easier and more efficient for as many people as possible. With our new online version we are taking a further step in that direction.
Finally we’d like to thank the 1646 people who donated money to TIPP10, the 150 beta-testers who tested TIPP10 Online for us before hand, and all the other users who have supported us with feedback and suggestions.
 
We wish you lots of fun with TIPP10!

We are planning an online version of our successful typing software, TIPP10. This version will have the same great features as the software version and can be used in any browser without installation. Because TIPP10 will be based on Javascript, there will be no need for plugins or Flash.
