Hi Charles and all, this is very true.  I remember a few years back reading
about I believe it was the NFB using games in their learning centers to
promote keyboard dexterity.  I have tried employing a similar strategy where
I work and some game developers have in fact been very generous and donated
copies of games to be used for that purpose.  If I could get the student to
give the games a try it seemed to help.

Best regards,

Tom

Games can actually be educational.  Get someone playing a game, and they 
learn keyboard commands and tasks without realizing they are learning what 
they couldn't grasp before learning the game.
