Typing Assistant - Free at GAOTD
« on: February 24, 2008, 06:29:46 AM »

When typing, a smart Typing Assistant prompt window opens to show you possible words you are typing. Then with one key stroke it completes the word for you. The program automatically learns the words you type, and automatically expands user-defined shorthand to full text, so that the more you use the program, the smarter it becomes and the more you find it useful.

This is similar to LetMeType.

I find it faster than similar applications and quite useful. Get it. :Thmbsup:

sri,

I thought you used Phrase Express, which, AIUI, isn't quite the same as Let Me Type; but, which of these do you now like best?

Several other programs of this kind exist - latest one I've seen is ShortCut, mentioned in this message.

Yes, I use and absolutely love PhraseExpress.

Typing Assistant also has basic text expansion capabilities but I prefer PhraseExpress for that.

PhraseExpress and Typing Assistant can co-exist and complement each other well.

I checked out Shortcut's website and it looks similar to PhraseExpress and Texter. I am going to skip trying it for now.

So far my experience with Typing Assistant has been pleasing.

I did not like the fact that it defaulted to activating for *every* window. For example, it was active while typing in passwords!! I reversed the default to only activated for the applications I select. So far I have selected programs like notepad and email.

It adds every word you type to your personal word list. So the first time I typed "Chaim" it wasn't a choice, but it was the second time. I think this autoadd functionality might be what pushes me into the auto-typing camp. I am sure other applications have this feature, but it has never registered with me if it has been mentioned. If other auto-typing applications have this feature it may be worth mentioning, if it hasn't been mentioned yet, as this is what is convincing me that this type of application may be more useful than I first thought.

So, from your comment about LetMeType, PhraseExpress is a text expander, while Typing Assistant is a text completer?

Are you using the free-for-personal-use version of PhraseExpress?  I have a dim memory of someone saying that it started to nag you after a while.

tinjaw,

If you haven't seen them already, here are some DC and other links on text expanders, completers and correctors (see the message by imtrobin for the difference):
