Nessy Fingers Touch Typing
From: £30.00 / year
What makes Nessy Fingers different?
Nessy gets students typing real words fast and introduces spelling practice immediately. Keys are introduced alphabetically which makes sense to kids – this is different to most other typing programs which mix up random letters.
Winner of the Education Resources Award.
Nessy Fingers is suitable for ages 7+.
The game has been designed to be used by both beginners who have never typed before or those who want to improve their typing speed. It is especially effective for children with dysgraphia, dyslexia and ADHD.
Nessy Fingers has an in-build Orton-Gillingham sequence of word lists or you can add your own words for spelling practice.
Reports on progress are easily accessed as a class or individual. Tables and graphs show characters per minute (CPM), words per minute (WPM) and accuracy (ACC%).

“This is the best typing program I have seen and feel it really encourages the children to want to succeed.”
“My 11 year old son who is dysgraphic has been using the Nessy typing program and it has been great, he is actually learning to type. The best thing about the program is that it teaches the keys in alphabetical order so it is much easier for children to remember where the keys are.”
“My daughter, who is 11, has been learning touch typing now for the past 4 years and is finding it difficult due to dyslexia. She played Nessy typing last night and feels that she has learned more in the hour than she has in 4 years.”
“You learn letters in alphabetical order, which will be a great help to my daughter with her spelling. The lessons are short and clear with rewards, and the practise games are as fun as it can be. My daughter forgot she was practising because she wanted to win.”
“It really is very simple and great fun. My 7 year old dyspraxic son doesn’t even realise we are teaching him to type.”
“Nessy Fingers is so well set out and logical and FUN! A real winner.”
“This is the first touch typing tutor he has tried that actually works. He was diagnosed with dyslexia in June and since finding Nessy Fingers has been working away on it every day.”
