(There's no video for TypeIt4Me 4.0 yet. Please contribute to MR and add a video now!)
I've used it since this version, and it's still around now in OS X. This early version is basically a simple text expander, where you define your own abbreviations (for common words and phrases, names, addresses, even entire paragraphs) and when you type that abbreviation followed by a 'trigger' TypeIt4Me expands it to the full text you've defined for it.
Triggers are also user-defined, but commonly you can choose from space, and just about any or all types of punctuation.
For example, my simplest abbreviations from even the earliest days are for most letters of the alphabet, but you're not limited to single letters, and your abbreviations can be as long or as short as you want. Here's my alphabet:
but can do each for get have just know left may not out put quite right the until very with except you big (obviously a i and s are left undefined).
I can only say, once I began to rely on it, I couldn't ever do without it.
