Shorthand for Windows is designed to increase your typing speed and productivity by replacing frequently used words, phrases, paragraphs and complicated keyboard combination commands with a single command or keystroke.  With  commands YOU choose, you will never have to do repetitious typing ever again!

Here are just some of the examples that  Shorthand can  type in for you:

Shorthand is much more than a text expansion program; Shorthand's ability to display interactive dialog boxes with pick lists and input fields make it ideal for document assembly. For example if you have several credit cards, you can have Shorthand display a list of all your credit cards; select the credit card you want and have Shorthand type the information directly into your target application.

Shorthand is compatible with most Windows applications. All the key commands YOU choose are stored in the Shorthand for Windows dictionary, ready to be called up anytime you need it.
