Improve your efficiency when writing, by choosing from lists of suggestions to automatically complete words, with this handy application

editor's review





If you write large amounts of content on a day-to-day basis, you know how time-consuming it is to type the same words over and over again, especially when covering specialized subjects.

TypingAid can help speed up your writing and reduce the required effort, by offering suggestions and automatically completing words. You can download suggestion lists or create your own, as well as have the application learn new words as you are typing.

Automatically complete words

When the program is running, it displays a list of suggested words based on the characters you have already typed. It is possible to select which processes or windows it should not be enabled for, in case you do not need it for certain applications.

You can then insert the first word by using a customizable shortcut or select an item from the list with the use of the 1-10 keyboard keys.

Customize the word suggestion list

The suggestion box can be moved anywhere on the screen, enabling you to place it in a location where it is easily visible but does not interfere with your work. You can also modify its transparency, specify the maximum number of words that should be displayed, as well as its maximum width.

The helper window, which allows you to move the word list to any position, can be disabled. In this case, the suggestion list is displayed a specified number of pixels below the cursor.

Can learn new words automatically

While TypingAid can provide suggestions by accessing a TXT file placed in the application's directory, it can also learn new words as you are typing.

If a word has been used a specified number of times, the application automatically adds it to the program's database, so that it can provide it as a suggestion at a later date.

It would be useful if the application offered a built-in word list, as well as an easier way to access and edit it, as some users may have difficulties finding one online or installing it. Also, there is no easy way to switch between lists if, for example, you need to write in multiple languages.

Overall, if you are looking for a lightweight tool, designed to increase your productivity by automatically completing words as you are typing, you should try TypingAid.
