Ergonis Software (http://www.ergonis.com) has released Typinator 6, the latest version of its tool for auto-typing text and auto-correcting typos systemwide across all Mac OS X applications. The upgrade sports over 50 new features and improvements.
With an inclusion mechanism, text expansions can execute external scripts and include their results in the expansion. Typinator supports scripts written in in many different languages like AppleScript, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby, and arbitrary shell scripting languages.
The biggest innovation in Typinator 6 is the possibility to create expansions based on regular expressions. Also, new HTML expansions are not just text expansions that happen to contain HTML code, but rather a distinct expansion format that can be described in HTML.
Typinator requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later. Mac OS X 10.6 or higher is recommended.
Typinator can be purchased on the Ergonis Software web site for approximately US$32 for a single user license. A family pack for installation on up to five computers is $49. The upgrade to Typinator 6 is free for anyone who bought a license before Oct. 1, 2013.
