TypingAid v2.22.0

Midas on 29 Nov 2016
  • 4MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 26 Jun 2015
  • Suggested by joby_toss

TypingAid is a fast and simple auto-completion utility that suggests words and phrases in any window. The program supports European languages with accents, suggestion tooltips, and the ability to add words and phrases to word list with shortcut key.

The program can help with writing in a language different than the available keyboard, with highly technical or medical terminology, or to help cut down on typing for touch or disabled typists.

The program was compiled using an AutoHotkey script and the .AHK source included.

Runs on: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: GPL Version 3
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch TypingAid.exe.

Optionally, you can prepare a list of words, saved as "wordlist.txt" under the same folder as the program file. The zip contains one for general purposes (and the program learns as it goes), but others are available from the homepage.
What's new?
  • Added the ability to exact match on Window Titles (enquote, or tick the checkbox).
  • Added Word Replacements. In wordlist.txt, use the form |r|. To define more than one replacement per word, simply add the word again on a different line. If Case Correction is off, the case of the first letter will be changed to match the word being replaced.
  • Added Word Descriptions. In wordlist.txt, use the form |d|. Replacements and Descriptions are compatible and can exist on the same word. With fixed width fonts, the description will show in a separate column.
  • Added a setting to control the width of the List Box in pixels.
  • Added Numpad Enter as an autocomplete key.
  • Fixed issues with words that had apostrophes (') in them.
  • Set journal_mode to TRUNCATE so the db journal isn't deleted every time.
  • Minor performance improvements when loading the wordlist.
  • Added a progress bar when loading the wordlist.
  • Added a progress bar when cleaning the wordlist (when exiting the script, the box may appear blank. I think this is because the script is exiting).
  • Added framework for database conversions.
  • Fixed issue with overriding the default font.

@ Maniac: Thanks ... and updated ;)

Found a bug when generating new Preferences.ini files. If you've started anew with TypingAid since v2.19.7, it's probably best to delete your preferences.ini, but it will fix the TerminatingCharacters entry IF you have not modified that entry since the Preferences.ini was created.

*2.19.9 12/18/2014
** Fixed bug when creating TerminatingCharacters when generating preferences file. Broken TerminatingCharacters will be repaired if not already modified.
** Added "Threading" during the input loop to cause less missed keys
** Auto-launch 64 bit exe if present and launching a compiled script (name 64 bit script "64.exe")
** Fixed some poorly named variables

Lock State v2.00.0b

I am Baas on 28 Mar 2015
  • 460KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 24 Mar 2015
  • Suggested by dmg

Lock State provides a simple, and customizable, on screen display in the lower right corner of the desktop to show the states of the NumLock, CapsLock and ScrollLock keys. When a lock key is pressed the OSD will appear, and a optional sound will play. Lock State can also lock the keys into their current states, so even if a lock key is pressed its state will not change. States can even be saved between sessions, so all states will be restored to what they were the last time Lock State was running.

Lock state is written in the AutoHotkey language.

Runs on: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Freeware/Open Source
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch Lock State 2.0.exe.

PromptHere v2.9.2.0

joby_toss on 29 Jan 2014

PromptHere is a small utility that sits in the system tray and allows you to open a command prompt directly in the folder you're browsing, using a custom shortcut mouse/key combination. You can also specify if you want the selected file's name pasted or not in the command prompt window by editing the .ini file. Works with a variety of file managers.

Written in AutoHotkey.

Runs on: WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch PromptHere.exe.
What's new? v. Recompiled with latest AHK_L. Zip also includes latest
MilesAhead.ahk include file and PromptHere.ahk source.

v. Fixed error if Set Hotkey is closed via Escape key
or clicking the 'x' without setting a hotkey, then opened again.

Updated code that opens prompt in current folder when none are selected. No longer requires keyboard macro to shift up a directory in the path. Default Mouse Hotkey changed to Control-MiddleMouseButton(see Suggestion about
Alt key above.)

Updated About Dialog.

v. 2.8
Added user selectable keyboard hotkey to open a prompt in DesktopDir as set in .ini file.

v. 2.7
IniEdit updated to 1.6. Accepts file to open via drag & drop.

v. 2.6
IniEdit updated to 1.5. Now pressing Control-t swaps the 2 characters to the left of the insertion point. (If your typo is "thsi" instead of "this" you can fix it by hitting Control-t with the insertion point to the right of the 'i'.) Note that
editor new accepts Tab key. To tab out to buttons from edit box, use Control-Tab.

v. 2.5
Added option in Tray Menu to Edit IniFile. Included tiny Glass .ini editor. Editor requires .NET 3.0 or later with Glass enabled. Otherwise the .ini file will be opened via file association.

v. 2.4
Smoothed the blur effect so that it's there when the prompt is first shown if Glass is enabled.

v. 2.3
Added .ini option DesktopDir. Default dir is C:\ if you click on a blank space on the Desktop while desktop is the "active window."

v. 2.2
Glass feature of prompt may be disabled on Vista or Windows Seven by setting "UseGlass" setting in .ini file to 0. EnableBlurBehind which gives the glass effect, works best if the background color is black. If you have customized your system command prompt to another color and the effect does not look good, set UseGlass to 0 in the .ini file if desired.

v. 2.1
Glass feature now incorporated into the PromptHere exe. The command prompt glass was "translated" from AutoIt3 code by Michael Michta, to AutoHotKey functions. Thanks to Michael Michta for showing me the way to do this in AutoIt3.

v. 2.0
Now uses "blur behind" for Glass prompt if Glass is enabled on Vista or Windows Seven. 7prompt.exe must be in the same folder as PromptHere otherwise an error will occur.

Included source and icon in download. No longer using UPX compression to avoid av "false positives."

FYI, Just hold shift and right-click on a folder in Windows 7 (and I believe Vista) to have an "open command prompt here" option. This is quicker and doesn't require a third party app.

codeWarrior on 2010-05-05 20:38

For WinXP, add below instructions to registry file "DosPrompt.reg" and register. You can select then "DOS Prompt" when right-clicking on folder.


@="DOS Prompt"

@ codewarrior
good tip, thank you. But not a portable solution though, I know my local library won't be letting me do any Registry editing. (they have even disabled Right-Click !!!)

iSpace mimics the iPhone function of interpreting a rapid double space as a period-space, which can greatly improve typing speed. The program also provides optional capitalization of the following character. iSpace is useful for any typing procedure where speed is essential, such as dictation or transcription.

Written in autohotkey.

Runs on: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8

Very useful application for those versed with the iPhone shortcut as suggested by the developer. For those who are not so familiar, it will be provide less typing than ordinarily supplying a period, space and a capital. Works well across MS Office applications, notepad apps (Notepad, Notepad++, etc), graphic apps like Paint.NET, Fotografix etc.

Rejjy13 on 2013-06-05 14:52

This is a good idea. I have incorporated it in my computer through an AHK script.

Space::DoubleTap("{BS}. ")

DoubleTap(key) {
If (A_ThisHotkey==A_PriorHotkey && A_TimeSincePriorHotkey < 250)
Send %key%
Send {%A_ThisHotkey%}

nice, hope there will be feature to not display the feed that already shown

ikke on 2010-09-27 22:20

Too bad, twitter support is removed for now due to changes on the twitter site. I did like that function very much and I hope the author can restore that.

Alternatively, FeedRoller Portable
is another portable version in the Platform.
