SEN / Dyslexia touch typing software for individuals


Are you or a member of your family struggling with:

  • Visual disturbances
  • Slow work rate
  • Reading, writing and spelling
  • Poor attention span
  • Processing
  • Poor working memory

If so, learn to touch type with our specialised SEN/Dyslexia typing software, especially designed to help address these challenges.


Dyslexia affects individuals in different ways and includes a wide range of challenges which can impact education, work and life.

A life-changing skill

However, with the right support, strategies and skills, it is possible to overcome many of these challenges. One simple skill that can help and can be life changing is touch typing.

Visual disturbances

Incorporating specialised features and a multi-sensory approach throughout, the KAZ course teaches typing skills, whilst minimising visual disturbances. It uses a unique preference screen, which tailors the course for maximum visibility comfort.

Unique ©Preference screen

Preferences include:

  • Choice of coloured background/filter screens – for reducing white screen glare
  • Choice of two specific DRT research based background/filter colours - to stabilise letter movement and reduce blurring
  • Choice of dyslexic friendly typefaces (including 2 licensed dyslexic fonts) – for ease of reading
  • Choice of font colour – for contrast from background screen colour
  • Choice of font size – for optimum visibility comfort and to minimise fusing and crowding of letters
  • Choice of Keyboard – for optimum visibility comfort

Once the user has selected their preferences and can read the sample text comfortably, these options are then 'Saved' and applied throughout the course, tailor making it and ensuring the learning experience is comfortable and enjoyable.

Visually impaired users will benefit from KAZ’s audio descriptive version, which includes ‘speaking keys’ and spoken instruction.
Deaf and hearing impaired users will benefit from KAZ’s text only version, with written and visual instruction.

The course was designed to be used independently and without supervision.

  • The Method

    Unlike other typing tutors based on repetitive exercises and distracting games, KAZ teaches typing skills using specific combinations and progressions of just 11 words in 5 easily memorised, scientifically structured and trademarked phrases. Its multi-sensory approach engages the major senses of sight, sound and touch simultaneously, radically enhancing memory retention and recall - which is why it is so effective.
  • Brain Balance

    The unique method trains the fingers on both hands to work symmetrically and simultaneously, a direct result of both hemispheres of the brain working at the same time (brain balance). No other typing tutor works in this way.
  • Muscle Memory

    The method also builds muscle memory. With the repetition of real word vocabulary - reading, spelling and vocabulary are engrained to memory and spellings become a series of finger movements and patterns on a keyboard, dramatically reducing the likelihood of transposing and misspelling words.

This is why so many special needs co-ordinators (SENCOs) and teachers recommend KAZ.
