I have been using the Searsol typing programme for four years now and I have found it to be very user friendly and beneficial to all the students who have used the programme. Each year there are about 30 students who use the programme, they find the graphics very pleasing and find the programme very enjoyable. I would highly recommend the Searsol.

Of all the ways in which we have tried to help David learning to typing with Searsol, it has been by far the most beneficial. For the first time David can express himself in his own words using a laptop at school.
