Testimonials and reviews

Niamh Baldwin, Executive Librarian
Waterford City & County Council Library Service

At Waterford Libraries, we have been offering TTRS to teachers for use in the classroom (or homeschooling) and to individual users.

TTRS has been hugely popular and beneficial to both schools and general library members, so popular in fact that we had to double the number of licences we offer within our first few months use.

The feedback from teachers and parents has been extremely positive and encouraging and the uptake is growing all the time.

It is a hassle-free programme that has given huge rewards for the children and adults that are currently utilising it here through Waterford Libraries.

From an administrative point of view – it is very straight forward to manage, allocate logins etc. We would highly recommend that any library authority add this to their suite of online services.

TTRS is a flexible program that meets a variety of learning needs.

Teacher, High school

TTRS is easy to use, I like the short modules, and it seems to be working. The online access is great so pupils can work on it at home and in their own time if they are disciplined.

Specialist Teacher, High school

With TTRS the children enjoy it, it's quick to set up and it's easy to run. The literacy focus is also great and overall it is the best touch typing program I've used.

Teacher, Middle school

Touch-type Read and Spell has been useful for me because it’s helping me with my touch-typing and my dyslexia.

Frequently asked questions

How do we add a library member as a TTRS user to our account? It is quick and easy in the administrator console to add a new user or to share a link for individuals to set themselves up. It is also possible to import multiple students simultaneously using a spreadsheet.

What age is TTRS suitable for? Children from as young as 7 years old all the way through to mature adults can benefit from TTRS. Feel free to ask us for more detailed information about the reading and spelling ages covered within the TTRS Course.

Can we replace an inactive member? The TTRS course is ‘roll-on, roll-off’ – which means you can delete a user and utilise the space to create another user account.

Can library members use TTRS from home? Once you have set up a user, they can enter their individual username and password to access the TTRS course from most standard computers with a keyboard and internet connection, as well as from iPads.

How does TTRS help people? TTRS helps to develop the typing and literacy skills of children, young people and adults including those who have difficulties with reading, writing, and spelling for a broad range of reasons, and at the same time increases their level of confidence, self-esteem and motivation as learners.
