How do I turn off the virtual hands and keyboard?

Our virtual hands and keyboard will show you the correct finger placement for reach key as you type. If you find the virtual hands and virtual keyboard distracting, or if you prefer not to have this guidance, you can easily deactivate them.

Once you log in and start a lesson, you will see several icons along the top of the screen. To turn off the keyboard guide, click the keyboard icon. To turn off the hand guides, click the hand icon.

What if I don't see the icons?

Remember that your teacher can lock these settings for you. If you don't see the keyboard icon or the hand icon in your settings, it is because your teacher has locked the setting from the teacher portal and you are no longer allowed to customize them.
