Hi Carsten, 
hi Andreas!

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...
