Want to increase your typing speed? Well I don’t have an exact solution on increasing typing speed, but I have a quick hack to increase your keyboard output — text-substitution software. Simply type in a few keystrokes of your choice and you’ll get an instant output of anything you specify — hard-to-remember number strings, your address, phrases you often use, URLs, or even an entire email template.
Learn more in the video above! Special thanks to Ken for introducing me to Texter two months ago. 🙂
- Download: Texter Text-Substitution Software (Zip file)
(Right click the link and click “Save as” to save the file to a specified folder on your desktop. I do not own Texter nor did I create it; I’m only providing a copy for your ease of download.)

Update Dec 7, 2013:
- Seems like Texter doesn’t support foreign languages. There’s another tool “Perfect Keyboard” which may work for other languages. I’ve been using it for the past few months and it works great — even better than Texter actually! Download Perfect Keyboard from CNet.
- The Texter download I’m offering here is for Windows users. For MacBook users, Mac OS already has a built-in text substitution. Read: How to Set Up Text Expansion (Substitution) in Mac
