Imagine typing only about half of what you do now. With typing-expansion software, you can turn words you type often into abbreviations. For example, type “t” for “the,” and “ty” for “thank you.”
What shorthand did for handwritten note-taking, this software can do for typing. The software must learn which words you’d like it to auto-expand.
The more words you program into the list, the faster you type.
Tools to choose from:
- For Windows, AutoHotKey (autohotkey.com; free), ActiveWords (activewords.com; free trial) and Texter (tinyurl.com/yrsl9z; free).
- For Mac, TypeIt4Me (typeit4me.com; $27; also available on iPhone), Typinator (macility.com/products/typinator; free trial) and TextExpander (smileonmymac.com/TextExpander, free trial).
Those programs work in any application you’re typing in. Which means you can save time and worry less about typos, whether you’re using e-mail, spreadsheets or Word.
