Ergonis Software Releases Typinator Public Beta

Typinator automates entry of repetitive text and graphics across
applications Hagenberg, Austria: May 10, 2005 — Ergonis Software today
released Typinator Public Beta, a preview version of Typinator 1.0 for Mac
OS X. Typinator, a typing automator, enables users to rapidly insert text
and images into any type of application. Like PopChar, Ergonis Software’s
widely used tool for inserting special characters into text, Typinator’s
intuitive interface and ease-of-use result in immediate productivity gains,
even for non-technical users.

Everyone, from office worker to executive, has experienced the tedium of
repetitive, robotic typing. Even more frustrating are the errors that creep
into re-typed text. While some applications, like word processors, may
offer some typing automation capabilities, this support does not extend to
other software applications. Developers also face similar frustrations,
especially when using multiple development environments.

Typinator speeds repetitive typing tasks and eliminates manually introduced
errors. To set up an often-used text or image in Typinator, you simply
define an abbreviation along with its replacement text or image. When you
enter the abbreviation in any application, Typinator will automatically
expand it.

For business users, Typinator provides a layer of operational consistency
and productivity across heterogeneous applications. A standard customer
service response, a signature image on an email, a clause in a contract —
each of these can be inserted into an application with just a couple of
keystrokes. For technical users, Typinator automates typing of code and the
implementation of documentation standards.

Two additional Typinator features greatly increase its practical value. You
can define replacement text that contains an automatic insertion of the
current date and time in any format you specify. Creating an order
acknowledgement or shipping confirmations with this feature is a snap. You
can also define abbreviations that are case sensitive, so that the
replacement text will appear correctly at either the beginning or elsewhere
in a sentence.

Pricing and Availability: Typinator Public Beta is available for Mac OS X
10.3 or later and is compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 (“Tiger”). Ergonis
