Sao Mai Typing Tutor (SMTT) is an application developed by Sao Mai Center for the Blind. The main objective of this application is to help all computer beginners explore, learn and improve typing skills. We hope this will also bring one more useful tool for trainers to support their training activities. And moreover, it's completely free for all!

Please give us a hand to bring this free useful program to more users around by translating it into your local languages. Read our call for help to translate Sao Mai software, and quick instruction on how to translate Sao Mai Typing Tutor here.
