ColeType is a tool that allows the user to learn touch typing for Qwerty, Dvorak and Colemak keyboards as they continue to work freely on their computers. The main functionality provided is an on-screen keyboard that displays the user input via animation of the keys pressed. The keyboard remains on top of all other windows and there for allows the user to check what key to click and stops the user from habitually looking down at their actual keyboard to encourage proper touch typing form. This is especially an issue for beginners. The application also allows a selection of customization option to tailor the look and feel of the on-screen keyboard to their preference and to best be integrated into their workspace.
