Ettore Software Ltd. Introduces TypeIt4Me 4.0 and Sounds4Fun OS X Edition
1.0.2 At Macworld Conference & Expo
London, UK, Tuesday, 15 January 2008 — Ettore Software Ltd. today
introduced an enhanced version of its long- standing text expander for Mac
– TypeIt4Me 4.0
Since 1989, TypeIt4Me has allowed users to set up short abbreviations which
expand to longer words, phrases or entire paragraphs when typed.
Abbreviations can even expand to pictures.
New TypeIt4Me version 4.0 will now automatically correct spelling mistakes.
Unlike competing products which require the user to set up long lists of
typos and their correct spelling, TypeIt4Me’s AutoCorrect uses Apple’s
built-in OS X spell-checker, AppleSpell and requires no user set up.
Users can turn AutoCorrect on/off via a hotkey, which also allows changing
among up to three supported languages (including English, French, German,
Italian, Dutch, Swedish, Spanish and Portuguese).
Also new in 4.0 is Autocue, which allows users to define boilerplate text
with variable parts to be typed when prompted at expansion time.
Ettore Software, located in booth S-1338, will be demonstrating TypeIt4Me
4.0, as well as Sounds4Fun OS X Edition, all week at Macworld Conference &
From Wednesday, Expo visitors will be able to purchase both products at
special show prices at the booth or online. See http://ettoresoftware.com
for pricing and availability.
Company founder and CEO, Riccardo Ettore says: “Users have long been able
to define commonly mistyped words to expand to their correct spelling. With
4.0, they can now leverage the power of OS X’s in-built spell-checker and
have their typos automatically corrected while they continue typing,
instead of being underlined in red.”
Also available today and demonstrated at the booth is TypeIt4Me for iPhone
(requires jailbreak for now, until official SDK is made available by Apple).
A demo of TypeIt4Me for iPhone can be downloaded now by adding this source

Press and media are cordially invited to conference room 105 in the South
Hall, on Thursday, January 17th at 2:00 p.m. where Riccardo Ettore will be
available for Q&A and demos.
