If you have a mac, the apple program "Keynote" has a typewriter/ type on effect that can be applied to text.
Kayakman's approach is far easier if you just have a line or two, but if you have, for example, a paragraph or two of text you want to appear as if you're typing it, keynote may help in that area.

Someone figured out how to do type on text using Behaviors just a short time ago.They posted the technique to this forum.

I tried it myself and it works perfectly and looks good too.
The effect types one letter at a time and it's pretty easy to do,I'll rack my brain a while and see if I can remember the technique.

It's a simple technique as well.

The first video died about half way through. But second did fine. It came up with an error message about Player.  Now I have a brand new MacBook Pro with 16GB Ram  here are the specs so you have a defective Video or channel.

LOVE THE BRUCE ROTHWELL POST!
behaviors are great, and I loved his use of background colored 'spacer characters' to give a pause between sentences.

His sound effects were great too!

Here is folder of Typewriter sounds  one or two are AIFF files at least one is Wave  possibly one is MP.3 If you have a universal Sound converter you can convert all to one format I've put them all in a folder and uploaded to google Drive.

I don't know where the official come from I assume they are in public domain. You may want to look up on internet and find Public domain versions. I make know claim as to ownership. I know I didn't deliberately downloaded them.
