Norwegian keyboard
In progress
2018-03-06 8:19 am
I would like to use tipp 10 for my pupils, in the school. In Norwegian. I have lessons that I know how to import, but no Norwegian keyboard. It would also be nice to have a Norwegian user interface.

I am willing to help, I have experience in translation and localization of Linux software. So could you help me get started and then implement my future changes?

Best regard

Dear Axel,

Thank you very much for your message and your offer to help integrating Norwegian to TIPP10.

We offer our own interface for localization and to manage the keyboard layouts. We assigned the interface to your account "axel@bojer.no". You can find now the menu items "Developer" and there "Translations" and "Keyboards". Please do not hesitate to ask if you need help.

Thank you!

All the best from Berlin,

Naja wenn sie meinen das das schön aussieht ok. hier ein screenshot. Ich werde meine Bildschirm Auflösung nicht verändern, da alle(und ich habe viele Applikation auch welche die noch lange kein update gehabt haben) gut aussehen und der text normal aussieht. Low resolution und nicht hilft auch nicht.

Beste Lösung ist wahrscheinlich ihre web version ab jetzt zu benutzen. Wie kann man denn hier ein foto senden?
2014-12-20 2:20 pm
Wir finden die Darstellung auch nicht optimal. Die Skalierung unter Windows 8 ist eigentlich ganz vernünftig. TIPP10 wird aber vorerst nicht Retina-fähig sein. Zum einen hängt das an der Klassenbibliothek Qt (über Umwege lassen sich mittlerweile die Fenster selbst skalieren, nicht aber eingebettete Bilder und Icons), zum anderen müssen erst sämtliche TIPP10-Bilder (Tastaturlayouts, Tasten usw.) entsprechend modifiziert und neu erstellt werden.
Ich hoffe aber, wir können eventuell mit der nächsten Softwareversion eine Retina-Unterstützung anbieten.

Any plans to add a dictation feature? Built-in SAPI voices in Win 8 and numerous third party companies (Expressivo, Neospeech, etc) provide high quality text-to-speech technology. The text would be read out loud with the ability to instantly pause/play and increase/decrease speed while the dictated text would be hidden.

current letter highlight
Solved
2014-09-16 11:30 pm
The current letter to be typed is highlighted in a dark/medium gray and it it's hard to "see-through" the color to see what letter it is very clearly. For example, it's a bit difficult to see whether it's a capital "i" or lowercase "j".

Perhaps lighten the highlight, or use an underline, or blinking underline/cursor or dot below the letter to be typed. I think that would make such a difference. Thanks.

Too many dialog boxes to
Solved
2013-12-18 5:28 pm
First off, great work. Thanks for a nice program. I'm using it to unlearn Dvorak and go back to Qwerty.

My suggestion is to get rid of the dialog boxes that popup when trying to exit a lesson early.

The "do you really want is exit" box presumes a level of importance that a single typing lesson doesn't have; i.e. it's not a big deal if someone accidentally clicks exit and loses a lesson. If someone tried is close a 20 page term paper without saving, they would expect a confirmation, but not for a 3 minute typing lesson.

Another solution, instead of getting rid of the dialog, would be to add a "remember my selection" checkbox to the dialog.

These comments also apply to the next "do you want to save your results" dialog. I think that dialog is less useful than the first.

An additional comment of the developer:

You are right, but we think it's important to decide if the results should be saved or not when you cancel the training. Already in our online version we combined the two dialogs to one dialog, only asking if you want to save the results - but with three buttons: Cancel, Yes, No.
We will adopt this dialog to the next software release.

And we will think about your suggestion, to add a "remember my selection" checkbox.

Thank you again,

middle fingers for 4 and 9
Solved
2013-10-05 9:51 am
Good morning,

I'm curious about your choice to teach typists to use their middle fingers for "4" and "9" instead of the more standard ring finger. Why was this decision made? Can there be an option to turn it off and have it the other way? I'm brushing up on my typing after many years, and find myself quite confused by this.

Much thanks,

-Dainius
2013-10-16 4:58 pm
Thank you for your request.
We know about that issue: There is not someting like "the only one" finger assignment.
In Germany we mostly use the method which we have in our software. We know that particularly in the U.S. touch typing is teached the way you are used to.
We will adopt it as an training option to one of the next software releases.

Importing big short stories
Solved
2013-09-07 11:19 pm
Sometimes the limits (400 lines only) is such a pain, I try to find stories that fits within the 400 lines limits.

I want to import all sorts of stories, to practice typing through stories, to get used to the format of the stories, dialogues, etc. It's a good way to absorbs the osmosis of writing naturally, freely, without worrying about anything.

This 400 lines limit is an annoying obstacle for a would-be writer training to be a REAL writer.

I would appreciates some way to remove this limit, thanks.

Already, I typed a couple of short stories that fits within the 400 lines limit and it was gratifying, but there are other short stories that are longer than the 400 lines limit.

When I try to import those longer texts, and I edited a little bit, click "save" and a dialogue box would pops up saying...

"TIPP10"

"Cannot analyse the lesson.
SQL statement failed.
(Error number 312)

This process will be aborted.

OK"

So there it is, I tried again with different short stories that are longer as well, edit a bit, then it happens again.

Oh well.

Hopes this 400 lines limits can be removed.

I have tested other touch typers and they're no good. Your TIPP10 are the best I've seen, and I liked it's ONE feature, IMPORTING text files so I can type over them, it's great. Great for my hands, I feel the benefits already.

Please, please, please?

Oh well.

Option to skip the space character while typing. Why? Data entry practice does not require you to enter a space while typing. However most practice lessons look like

4556 4556 5545 5545 .... enter key

Skipping of the space character is essential for this type of lesson practice.

Allow one-minute timings
Solved
2013-06-27 12:12 am
Hello,
I sent a suggestion a few days ago and never got a reply, so in case you didn't get I am sending it again. I suggested that it would be a good idea to allow one-minute timings. Currently, the lowest setting allowed in the program is two minutes for the duration of a lesson. A lot of fluency building exercises for other learning tasks that I've done and taught are often done in one minute timings. One-minute timings are a great way to start building concentration and quick dexterity. (Why is there a 2 minute minimum?)

PS: Thanks for the great free program. I am really enjoying creating my own lessons.

Currently, once you save a custom lesson, you can not change it's name. I suggest changing that so that all the perimeters of each custom lesson, including its name, can be later changed as needed. In my case, after completing a few of my own custom lessons, I wanted to go back and change the naming format but wasn't able to.

2013-06-17 9:04 am
Hi Sam,

Thanks again for your suggestion. You're right, in our software version it is not yet possible to change the name of the lesson. That's because the structure of our database was not very good. We made that much better in our online version, so there it is already possible to change the name. Our next software version will have the same database as our online version, so it will be possible to change names of lessons in the next version. I think we publish the next software version in the next months.

Add the obtion to export and import multiple lessons at once (batch export/import)
Solved
2013-06-15 6:38 pm
Hello,
First off, thanks for creating and freely sharing such a great typing software. I am currently creating custom typing lessons for a student I am working with. I would like to share my custom lessons with others and be able to move them from one computer to another easily. Currently, Tipp10 only provides very basic exporting and importing options. The following improvements are essential to being able to quickly and easily share groups of lessons with others and move custom content to new computers:

1) The option of exporting and importing multiple lessons at once. Currently, I have export and import one lesson at a time.

2) In the exported "txt" file, include more of the perimeters of the lesson rather than just the name and the lesson content. Currently the "Short Description" and the selected "Dictate the text as" option are not saved. That means if I want to share or move the lessons to a different computer, I have to go through each lesson individually and add back in the other perimeters missing in the imported lessons.

Thanks again,
Sam
2013-06-17 8:59 am
Hi Sam,

Thank you very much for your suggestions. Let me answer your questions:

1) You're right - exporting multiple lessons would be a nice feature. We will think about that for upcoming versions.

2) In our software version it is not yet possible to export the "entire" lesson with all additional parameters. But we will change that with the next version (it's already implemented, but not published yet). Our online version already has this feature.
