Editors' Review

Typing Assistant provides the ability to autocomplete words and save time. With a minimum of frills and an impressively large dictionary, this program will shave minutes off writing.

This program's interface reminded us of the word-completing software present in text messaging, but still required a visit to the Help file's simple instructions for the basics. While its functionality proved to be initially distracting, we quickly grew to anticipate it. Once we wrote a few letters (for example, "Arr") a small screen popped up, providing a list of possible solutions (this example ranged from Arrack, Arrange, Array, and more). We either kept typing our word or scrolled through the choices and chose the correct one. Happily, the word we needed was usually toward the top and required less than a second to pick. The time saved using this program depended heavily on its best feature, an adjustable delay. When we wanted instant help we set no delay, but when we only wanted help if we were stuck on a spelling, we set the program to a longer delay before the screen appeared. No matter how we set it, this was a fantastic option for avoiding the word processor's spelling helper and has the ability to shave minutes from projects.

Typing Assistant comes with a 21-day trial. This program installs desktop icons without asking permission and leaves Start menu items and folders behind after uninstall.

""Open file error" messages"

May 26, 2011  |  By cesarinternational

 |  Version: Typing Assistant (English) 5.4

Pros

It worked well when I used it except for the errors.

Cons

Errors opening or saving files.

Summary

I installed the Desktop version first, but I got error messages that say "Open file error". I checked the Help in the program and says to then use the Portable version. I disabled the Windows protection called User Account Control since I thought the errors had to do with access rights to the C drive. I uninstalled the Desktop version and installed the Portable version, but I still got the same errors and the program crashes.

 |  Version: Typing Assistant (English) 5.4

Pros

This is great product and will save you a lot of time. You can selectively add words and phrases to the softwares text prediction library. Moreover this software is unobtrusive and is simple and easy to use. A real winner - buy it!

Cons

The only improvement I can see that is necessary is a way to have a one-click or automated removal of spelling errors picked up by the Auto-Learn feature.

Summary

I like tje product because It makes me a faster and more efficient types and save me having to type repetitive tricky words ovre and over again! It also allows insertion of customised phrases and all phrases and words can be inserted with the simple press of the number keys.

This is a great product and is well worth buying. I highly recommend it!
