"Reduces your keystrokes with a simple program"
Version: FastFox 2.03
Simple to use. Easy to download - download a trial version and purchase when it expires. Low cost. I estimate it reduces my keystrokes by 30% and I aim to further reduce by adding more and more expansions.
Don't re-issue product key. When I tried to install on a different computer it said the version was old. If your computer is slow expansion comes up slower and slows you down. if you accidentally hit a key you inadvertently bring up an expansion.
Excellent product that I highly recommend. Benefits by far outweigh the cons I list above.
I researched the internet to find a product that would speed up my transcription of research interviews, which is a very time consuming process. This is the best product I have found. If you want to reduce your keystrokes this is it. I tried another program which involved memorizing codes for a long list of words. The problem was if you couldn't remember them all it didn't work so it was a waste of $70. With Fastfox you add your own codes which make sense to you and you add as many as you want. I also tried Dragon Naturally Speaking. It's a good product but even a small error rate results in extra work and in the end it didn't really help me to speed things up.
I make codes for email beginnings and endings, my address, cell phone number, email address, commonly used words in my research as well as commonly used words that I use over and over. Anything that you type many times you can just make a code for.
I've recommended this product to many people although I don't think any of them bought it because they didn't realize how revolutionary it is for reducing your typing.
Though I bought this for transcription I use it for all my typing - it works anywhere on your computer, including on email. I hope this product stays on the market, as I have really come to rely on it. If I have to use someone else's computer, it's a drag having to go back to the old way of typing out everything in full and makes me see what a great tool this is.
