TTRS consists of 24 levels, made up of 31 modules each. Each module contains sets of words grouped by spelling patterns. Students practice typing these patterns using the correct fingering for touch-typing. At the end of every 4 modules, there is a dictation module to reinforce patterns previously introduced. 

The first 8 modules of Level 1 include multi-sensory tuition to establish touch-typing skills which are then acquired in the first 2 levels.

Each student is given a personal access login and can review their record of accomplishment and progress with ease.

The course begins with CVC (Consonant ­Vowel ­Consonant) words and progresses through the word lists used in the text­book Alpha to Omega by Dr Beve Hornsby and Frula Shear.

The keyboard and screen may be adjusted for sensory comfort and to provide support.

This course is designed for students who also have difficulty with phonemes. By engaging the skill of touch-typing it aims to provide an additional avenue of learning. Touch-­typing is an important skill for many dyslexic people with literacy difficulties.
