Word AutoCompleter
« on: September 28, 2005, 02:26:02 PM »
Hi

I just to check if you guys know any word auto completer like IntelliComplete

 http://www.flashpeak.com/icomp/

I like it a lot but there are a bug with it, and the authors don't seems to be developing it anymore. So I'm looking for alternatives.

The closet I know is AutoTyping and LetMeType but it doesn't work as well as it.

I ran OpenOffice.org under Linux for awhile, and that had autocomplete built in.  That was about two and a half years ago, so I'm not sure if the current version has that anymore.  I found it quite difficult to get used to on the computer, and eventually turned it off, but I depend on a similar technology when I'm writing on my PDA - couldn't be without it there.

Hi, What is that PDA tool? Maybe they have a desktop version.

Oh, it's just built into the Pocket PC operating system, I think.  I can't find a separate name for it.

I downloaded LemMeType and am quite impressed. I have never used software like this before so it is going to take a little getting used to, but it seems to work pretty well, and for a freebie ...

LetMeType works actually well but when I import the whole dictionary size into it, it takes up more than 60MB ram + it's very slow to load up (a few minutes) :(

Ah - I started blank and it is learning the sort of rubbish I type as it goes along ... I find that kind of neat, and almost entertaining seeing it try to guess what I am likely to type next ;-)

I am quite impressed at how quickly it seems to learn my habits ;)

Bummer though if is going to slow down as it learns more and more, though I suppose when it gets reasonably accurate I can turn off the learn mode.

Having never used this sort of thing before I too would be interested in an efficient alternative (esp. if it had a spell check), but I am not sure I would want to pay a lot of money for it - IntelliComplete looked over priced to me.

I don't know if these are quite the same, but FWIW there's a thing called AllChars mentioned in PricelessWare   http://allchars.zwolnet.com
=== begin quote ===
AllChars also supports macros functionallity: expanding abbreviations into
longer text strings.
Macros support includes secret macros for logins etc. and date/time functions.
=== end quote ===

Also, Two Pilots  http://www.colorpilot.com/index.html  has a freeware called Speed Typing which does shorthand expansion; go to their freeware page to find it.  They offer a more advanced payware version called Type Pilot.

Don't worry, I don't think you will hit the limit if you are using your own words. It was slow when I imported at 500K words into it. I will gladly pay for IntelliComplete if they will solve an annoying bug I encountered.

AllChars and Type Pilots are macro expanders, not quite the same as a dictionary word expander. :(

Please check out PhraseExpress. It can auto-complete single words but more important, also complete sentences that you have entered frequently.

Video Demo: http://demo.phraseexpress.com

PhraseExpress is free for personal-use and additionally includes a Clipboard History Manager, can store formatted text snippets and can run programs or open documents with text shortcuts.

Here is a show-case of some applications: http://www.text-expander.com
