Ergonis Software (http://www.ergonis.com) has given us Typinator 5.7, the latest version of its tool for auto-typing text and auto-correcting typos systemwide across all Mac OS X applications. The upgrade enhances dynamic input fields with optional default values and contains many other enhancements and fixes.
With a simple 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.
Typinator requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later. Mac OS X 10.6 or higher is recommended. It 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 5.7 is free for anyone who owns a license to Typinator 5.x.
