[prMac.com] FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Hagenberg, Austria - August 22, 2007 - Ergonis Software and TidBITS Publishing Inc. today announced the release of the free TidBITS AutoCorrect Dictionary for Typinator.
The latest update to Typinator from Ergonis Software gave the program the capability to correct typos and misspellings as soon as they're entered. To help users get started immediately, Ergonis provided dictionaries of more than 800 common mistakes in each of English, German, and French. Now Typinator has become even more useful with the addition of the public domain TidBITS AutoCorrect Dictionary in English, which enables Typinator to correct over 2,300 additional mistakes on the fly.
TidBITS publisher Adam C. Engst said, "The original public domain list of mistakes and their corrections comes from Micah Alpern; we enhanced and formatted it for use with the unsupported auto-correction capability in Eudora, where I've become addicted to it. When Typinator 2.0 added auto-correction, we worked with Ergonis to convert it appropriately and import it into Typinator, making Typinator a fixture on all my Macs."
Christoph Reichenberger, CEO of Ergonis Software, said, "With the new version 2.0, Typinator is no longer just a typing assistant that speeds repetitive typing tasks, but also becomes a system-wide auto-correction tool that automatically corrects typing errors and misspelled words. We're pleased to distribute the TidBITS AutoCorrect Dictionary with Typinator because it quadruples the number of errors that Typinator can correct, making Typinator even more valuable to our users. Installation is as easy as downloading the package and double-clicking it, and best of all, it's free!"
