good point. How about having a "hit rate" for every single key in order
to know what letters to train? I could imagine a diagram of a keyboard
where the brightness of the key corresponds to the error rate if you
know what I mean...
Additionally I fancy "ringing" keys with individual sounds / pitches per
key to use the auditive channel for learning as well. At least some
music and/or fancy sounds at every end of the line.
I consider it important to support the easiest way to exchange lections
and texts. This could include
- import ascii text as a lection (or even other formats, wikibooks...),
(this way one could memorize texts by typing)
- deliver sample lections on a central server (like Keduca -
or via Newhotstuff)
- allow dictates by reading texts aloud (like text2speech).
"Etudes" like "fff f ff ff ff" are very constructed - and to me they are
hardly to pass (even though I type real texts quite fast). One could
imagine some "cheaty" modes like
- allow backspace
- ignore whitespace
- cheat key: pressing escape skips current line...
