Nessy Fingers Touch-Typing
Nessy Fingers: Upgraded & Online.
We guarantee it’s the most fun you’ll have learning to touch-type!
About the Program
Our famous Nessy Fingers has been upgraded. As well as being online and tablet compatible it now has 5 brand new islands with 3 games on each, and new trophies to collect!
Nessy Fingers will take you through 5 lessons covering the Home Keys and each portion of the alphabet teaching you how to touch-type. Once you’ve played the lessons there are games to reinforce learning and a typing speed test for when you’ve mastered touch-typing!
How it Works
- Lesson 1: Home Keys (Learn the correct fingers positions to make touch-typing easy and fun!)
- Lesson 2: Keys A-G
- Lesson 3: Keys H-N
- Lesson 4: Keys P-Z
- Lesson 5: Punctuation
- Dino Island
- Penguin Mountains
- Black Rock Island
- Lost Lagoon
- Monkey Jungle
Lessons and games are narrated and subtitled, and a keyboard is visible on screen. After each lesson you’ll be rewarded with a rosette and directed to the games you can play to develop the skills you’ve just learnt and win trophies.
Race dinosaurs on Dino Island, beat the court characters at Dragon Pants Castle and face the slippery perils of Penguin Mountain, collect nuggets for coming first, second or third!
Collect trophies for completing all 5 lessons and coming first on the island races! Click an empty pedestal to see how to win that trophy as you make your way around the Nessy Finger islands and tackle the time trial!
Test yourself against the clock!
The Nessy time trial is unique, using full sentences and punctuation to set a personal best for words per minute and accuracy that will be displayed in Mount Glory – your trophy island. Your personal best sets the default Skill-o-meter difficulty for all other games.

“It really is very simple and great fun. My 7 year old dyspraxic son doesn’t even realise we are teaching him to type…it’s a treat that he gets if he has been good.”
The animations are awesome…Nessy Fingers is so well set out and logical and FUN! A real winner.

“I just want to express how thankful I was to receive my copy of Nessy Fingers less than 24 hours after placing my order. 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. Thank you so very much for producing such a great product and providing the best customer service possible.”
– Clare, Parent
