Text expander software has been saving writers all sorts of time for years -- Direct Access lets you use it to speed and simplify your personal computing experience!

Direct Access is an awesome time-saving utility that utilizes typed abbreviations to facilitate just about any task you and your PC attempt to undertake. For example, just type 'word' to open Microsoft Word, 'goo' to start a Google search or 'sign' to have Direct Access 2 automatically type your signature.

Direct Access provides an overview of all your commands right from the main interface, and lets you type an abbreviation in any application to trigger the associated command. Abbreviations can be associated to groups as well. When triggered, these will display a popup menu from which you can choose the desired command. Use Direct Access abbreviations to perform countless tasks, like typing boilerplate text (great for customer care and for transcriptions), opening applications and folders, or browsing websites, automatically correct spelling mistakes in any application.

Direct Access commands can be easily exported and imported for exchange and sharing, allowing for easy movement between different PCs and even sharing the same command files between different machines at the same time. Not convinced? Direct Access features new usage statistics reports that clearly and concisely display exactly much time you're saving.

If you are doing repetitive typing at your PC (who doesn't?) Direct Access will greatly improve your productivity!

New features in Direct Access:

  • Fully redesigned with an easier to use interface
  • Clipboard history
  • Support for rich text in Autotext
  • Ability to call autotext from other commands
  • Easily share commands in a network thanks to linked groups
  • Assign multiple abbreviations to the same command
  • Enhanced search and filtering
  • and more...

Steve Newport Hello,

can I use this offer to buy another year of upgrade protection and can you tell if you plan a major upgrade in the next 12 month and if yes give a sneak peak of what features are planned? Thanks.

den sain Have tried it. But I still like my favorite Typing Assistant, more easy to use and .NET framework independent.

Peter VH I'm still using a licensed 1.6.6 version and I LOVE it. It takes away so much work, especially text in emails

Is there really a good reason for me to upgrade to 2.6 ?

Mambo Bhambo "den said" sounds like the same cheap spammer who also spams on any other occasion when text expander programs are promoted.

DirectAccess is not good (sucks too much memory because of .NET and is very slow) but typing assistant is even worse.

marek jedlinski Nagarsoft have released a new, improved edition, now called PhraseExpander. As the Pro version costs over 99 Eur, it would be great to see a discount on BdJ.
