SecondKey (SK) Personal Edition (PE) User Manual

334 views

Published on

SecondKey is a utility which corrects typos and expands short forms in most applications in the MS-Windows environment (see examples of supported applications below). It replaces individual built-in typo correctors found in your applications (for example, MS-Office) and provide auto-correction and short form expansion capabilities to applications without them (for example notepad). SecondKey is customizable to your needs. You can add your own frequent typos for correction and your own short forms. Your customization only needs to be done once in SecondKey and SecondKey will use your customization in all supported applications. We spend 1/8 of our time in front of a computer entering text and 1/8 of that time using the "backspace" key or the "delete" key. With SecondKey, the keys for correction will be used less often and short forms will be expanded automatically, helping you to type accurately, type less and type fast (almost) everywhere.
