Hi Doug,

I suggest to give a try to TESTGEN written by WI5S. It's a good old
DOS-based software, which works fine on any OS-platform. You can practice
anything you want: text, random 5 charter groups etc.  It generates well
shaped CW even at very high speeds. It used to be a shareware but as I
heard Charlie made it a freeware couple of years ago. 

I use(d) it myself to improve my CW skills.
