BelTutor - Free Training Software

BelTutor is a cut down version of Beltower, designed for training new learners in a tower, and can be freely copied to your learners and friends.   It is given away, almost FREE, from the author.   It is an ideal way to teach new learners up to and including Plain Hunt.   It has unique features, not found on other simulators, designed to help learners through the early stages.   It can also be used at home and with hand bells for which the latest includes Bob and Singles.
