Asutype is a smart Operating System-level real-time
spell check and speed typing software that works automatically with
your keyboard to increase your typing accuracy and productivity: it learns
and adapts itself to your keyboard habits, spell checks and automatically
corrects mistakes as you type, automates difficult and repetitive typing
tasks, and applies several other original and innovative solutions to
prevent you from making unwanted typos, increasing the speed and
accuracy of your typing.
How Does Asutype Work?
While running, Asutype is continuously watching
- It watches out for mistakes that you may make such as
mistyping when you hit a wrong key, uncapitalized names and sentences, accidental use of
the Capslock key, or
other general misspellings. If the mistake is well recognized
because you have made it before, Asutype will
correct it immediately and automatically like it had never happened.
If the mistake is unrecognized because this is the first time you have
Asutype will flag it, keep track of it and
learn it so it can be fixed the next time you make it.
By learning and adapting to your own typing pattern,
Asutype becomes your own personalized typing assistant who knows
how to correct your mistakes automatically to save you time and effort.
This is possible
because you do not need to stop typing and go back to correct mistakes
- It watches out for repetitive text patterns and automatically
expands any predefined abbreviation to a longer text passage. You can assign any
frequently used piece of text such as your address, your signature,
commonly used phrases, an often used difficult technical term, or a
foreign name to a much shorter abbreviation. Thus, whenever you want
to insert the text, just type the assigned abbreviation and
Asutype will automatically replace it with the whole original
text. For example, the phrase "thank you very
much" can be obtained by typing a much shorter "tyvm", or the phrase "as
soon as possible" can be obtained by typing "asap".
By using text abbreviations (or text shortcuts), your
typing will be easier and faster. Asutype
comes with 800+ most common phrases already shortened and has an effective mechanism to help you build up your text shortcuts as you go, so,
as time goes on, your typing becomes more efficient.
- It watches out for repetitive typing tasks and automates them,
too. You can assign a series of commands or actions that you perform
repeatedly or in a regular basis to a keyboard hot key or mouse
gesture and let
Asutype carry out those tasks
automatically by pressing the hot key or making the gesture. For
example, you can use a hot key to duplicate a block of text, launch a
search by a search engine, write a repetitive reply, fill a repetitive form, or fill a lot
of forms from the same source of answers, etc.
Because Asutype works with your keyboard, it works all the time and everywhere –
when you are emailing, chatting, writing a report or essay, participating in a forum, blogging or typing something else. By working at
Operating System-level, Asutype gives you a unique and consistent
software that works the same way with every application and
from making annoying typos, speeds up your typing, saves you effort and
makes more efficient use of your time.
