Introduction for Thattachu Aasaan

The Thattachu Aasaan software is a very simple guide to learn


touch typing. Today, large number of software engineers and the technical
staffs are using only their two fingers while typing. This is because of not
learning the touch typing through a proper course. Time did not permit them
to go to a typing institution to learn the touch typing. Hence they are far
behind, in the matter of using the typewriter keyboard methodically. Thus a
''Thattachu Aasaan'' software has been prepared for the benefit of such
busy personnels.

that is within 6 to10 hours. Also your time will not be wasted. Depending

provided for three different types of keyboard in a single software! You will
