This PC program serves writers with repeated keyboard input especially of text, and in recovering lost pieces of text. It is of special value for input of formal language text (e.g. HTML), filling in forms, and in technical and commercial writing. It can serve as an aid for slow typists and for persons with limited typing ability. VK TypeHelp might also be seen as an aid for editing text in a given context.
Think of an assistant of the writer, sitting beside him and observing the sequence of his keystrokes. (Or reading a piece of text from the clipboard.) Then, after getting some experience, the assistant will predict and suggest reasonable continuations of the user’s text input according to former occurrences of the context. Whenever the user accepts one of the suggestions, the assistant will input it, in place of the user.
The user selects, shortens, or accepts a suggestion by simple keystrokes. In contrast to known auto text or text completion tools, this program does neither need explicit decisions and input of text in advance for future utilization by the user, nor does the suggestion explicitly depend on word or field content boundaries.
