Both Pathagoras and TypingAid are really fine, it seems. But, hey, the difference in the asking prices!  :o  Let me see, should I pay a fortune, or have the free one?   :-\ 

TypingAid could be useful as well, also AutoHotkey, also free.-Lintalist (April 04, 2019, 01:28 PM)

As you type your word, up to 10 (or as defined in Settings) matches will appear in a drop-down dialog, numbered 1 - 0 (10th). To choose the match you want just hit the associated number on your keyboard (numpad does not work). Alternatively you can select an item from the drop-down using the Up/Down arrows or the mouse. You can define a fixed position for the drop-down dialog to appear by hitting Ctrl-Shift-H to open a small helper window, or by specifying a list of programs in the preferences file.-TypingAid

At the moment I am using the free & fine AHK script, AutoCorrect, from IainB's post. It's big, so your browser may not answer at first:

@Josh: For US$40, Ace Text from might be worth a look. It's a sort of "companion" tool to their superb EditPad Lite (FREE). I have used the latter regularly for years, and am trialling AceText at present.
