UltraKey 6


UltraKey systematically teaches touch typing and safe keyboarding using voice, 3D animation, video, and virtual reality. It provides many options that adapt to a broad range of age groups and special needs.

Benefits for Organisations

UltraKey would be useful if your organisation has constituents or staff who need to learn keyboarding or improve their skills.

Major Capabilities

  • Motivates with praise as challenge levels are reached
  • Specific recommendations for improvement
  • Voice-accompanied instruction for young children, students with ADD, and students who are visually impaired
  • A clear and simple interface that suits users who are unfamiliar with computers
  • Twelve optional themes that adapt text size, desktop display, and keyboard display to meet individual preferences and needs
  • Keeps unlimited user records, generates reports, and permits managers to adjust general preferences


This donation is for five single-station standalone licences. Organisations can buy more licences directly from Bytes of Learning. Also available for purchase is the capability for server-based central record keeping.

Updates to UltraKey 6 are available for download at no charge.
