Phrase Express is an excellent Text Autocomplete Manager program created by people from Bartles Media. With Phrase Express users can avoid repetitive typing and autocomplete frequently used text phrases or even email messages and then use them within any program, i.e Outook, Intrnet Explorer, Firefox, Word, Excel etc.
It is ideal for letter templates, signatures, addresses, bank account information and for chat phrases. Phrases can be easily created and assigned an abbreviation, afterwards whenever user types in abbreviation program autocompletes the full text in place. For instance, typing “kr” can be replaced as ‘kind regards’ or ‘btw’ can be replaced as ‘by the way’. Program can be used not only for short common phrases but even for long emails.
