SureType for Macintosh OS X Released, 40% Discount Offered Through January
SureType Automates Repetitive Tasks, Such as Typing Common Text, by Watching
What You Type

PALM BEACH, FL – Jan. 20, 2005 — SureType for Macintosh OS X 2.01, which
allows users to define text shortcuts to insert frequently typed text, open
websites and applications, is now available from Rampell Software. This new
version includes significant internal changes and also features a 40%
discount through the month of January. With SureType, by typing address\
(address + backslash) SureType will insert your full address, or by typing
excel\ SureType will open Microsoft Excel. This is similar to Microsoft
Word’s AutoCorrect feature, but is much more powerful and works from any
application. Not only can SureType insert frequently used text items and
speed up your typing, like TypeIt4Me, but it can also put your favorite
files, folders, and applications at your fingertips.

SureType is very simple to configure and use, and comes with about 30
shortcuts preconfigured. Any word or series of letters can easily be
configured into a SureType shortcut; typing fax\ can automatically enter
your fax number, or date\ can insert the current date. SureType saves users
a significant amount of repetitive typing.

Any SureType shortcut can be activated by typing the shortcut name plus the
SureType “expansion key,” which can be changed to any key on your computer,
but is by default the backslash key. You can assign shortcuts to any file,
folder, website, e-mail address, or text. Shortcuts can be activated by
typing, hotkeys, or via a system-wide menu. Unlike competing products,
SureType does not require any changes to be made to your input mode or
character set.

SureType requires Mac OS 10.2 or higher, and is also available for Windows.
It comes with a free 14-day trial, and can be purchased for $24.97 directly
from the SureType website ($14.97 in January), or is available for free if
users tell their friends about SureType through the website. Upgrades are
free for registered users. For more information see
