Before you run the app, enter the words and phrases you frequently type or lengthy technical terms you need to work with and save them as wordlist.txt file under the same folder as the program file. Just enter one term or word per line in the wordlist.txt file. This text file is pre-filled(sample text) and is placed in the same directory as the program.

Once you are done with wordlist.txt text file, save it and launch the TypingAid.exe executable file. The program will assist you while sitting in the system tray. You will be shown suggestions according to what you have entered in the wordlist.txt file.

Which text editors does it work with? All text editors, including Notepad++, Notepad 2, MS Office Word, Sticky Notes, etc. In layman’s term, it will work in any place that requires text as input(see screenshots below). When you are shown a suggestion, hit the desired number to select it.

    I can’t get this to work. There is nothing explaining anything as far as configuration of the program, though it sounds like it would be helpful.

    Problems with Win7
    I have the program installed on a USB stick to allow total portability. It is running fine in WinXP.  However, I am having a problem with TypingAid in Win7 The word prediction list will display fine, however, when pressing the appropriate key to insert the selected word into the document, nothing will happen.
