Sorry for responding to an old message.

If your typing ability is the problem -- why not just learn how to  
type? It's a skill, like CW, and can be learned with practice. There  
are several software products that can be used to improve your typing  

To be effective, you should be able to type about twice the speed of  
the CW you are trying to copy. (That rule of thumb pre-dates  
computers by many years)

I can type about 80-100 wpm, so I have no trouble keeping up with my  
top CW speed. (which is pretty pitiful by comparison)
