Klavaro Typing Test
Written by Divine Okoi

Klavaro is a libre, user-friendly, and customizable typing tutor for improving your typing speed, flexibility, and accuracy. It features an intuitive interface with varied lessons with difficulty ranges and support for multiple languages and keyboard layouts.

You can keep track of your progress with charts, modify keyboard layouts or create new ones, and import texts to use for practical lessons.

Klavaro has 4 main typing courses and they are:

  1. Basic course: random character sequences are generated for you to enter in order to memorize the key positions on your keyboard.
  2. Adaptability exercise: practice using the whole keyboard as you enter a series of randomly generated keys.
  3. Velocity exercise: practice typing random words at your highest speeds using a familiar keyboard layout.
  4. Fluidness exercise: type complete paragraphs without spelling or grammatical errors. You can load text files independent of language.

You can perfect your typing using any or all of the 4 exercise modes free of charge.
