In addition, typing in your non-native language becomes easier with Lightkey’s innovative built-in spelling and grammar correction features.
Here are 7 reasons to get Lightkey:
#1 – You won’t need to type the same text over and over and over again…
Even the most creative content has a structure that is based on concepts, repetitive words and phrases. Moreover, when compiling professional or technical content such as legal documents, how-to guides, academic papers, etc. repetitive words and phrases are used more often. Typing these repetitive terms over and over again is far from being productive and this is where Lightkey comes into play. Lightkey automatically learns your typing patterns and analyzes the context of your current content. Based on its analysis, it will suggest previously learnt words, phrases and even in some cases full sentences. In addition, Lightkey’s artificial intelligence capabilities are able to suggest relevant predictions for purely novel content as it was built for rich content creation.
#2 – Don’t worry about spelling mistakes
We all know this pause moment before typing a certain word that we’re not sure of its correct spelling. For example, when typing words like ‘bureaucracy’, ‘definitely’ or ‘occurrence’ we’re often used to seeing Chrome's red cross mark indicating that we got it wrong, again. In these cases, some go back and fix the misspelled word by replacing a character, some delete it and retype it and some may use the drop-down suggestions dialogue and hopefully find the intended correct wording. This is a costly process which takes time and perhaps more importantly – gets in the way of our already busy line of thought. Lightkey offers a different experience. Lightkey uses its text prediction engine to suggest just the word your need even when you misspelled it. By doing so, when you’re facing a challenging word and you’re not sure how to spell it – just write something and in most cases Lightkey will suggest the word you were trying to type. In this case, all you need is to accept the suggestion and move forward – no need to go back and no interruption to the line of thought whatsoever. In other words, you can focus on your content and feel confident about Lightkey’s ability to keep you sharp.
#3 – Keep your wrists healthy by reducing keyboard usage
Typing doesn’t seem like a particularly dangerous thing. However, as with any other repetitive physical task, heavy typing can put a strain on wrists and fingers. Nowadays, more and more people use computers for work or school, which results in constantly growing numbers of wrist injuries. There are many solutions for wrist pain. For example, using a split keyboard and/ or a vertical mouse can help reduce pain and strain. However, there is one very simple equation to consider. The less you use the keyboard, the less likely you are to suffer from wrist pain – which inherently makes predictive text better for your wrists. Lightkey can significantly reduce the number of keystrokes required to create content as it is capable of suggesting up to 12 words including punctuation marks. Therefore, beyond saving time and feeling confident and more focused with your typing, Lightkey is a great long-term investment in terms of wrists health.
#4 – Contextual Predictions Across Communication Platforms In Over 80 Languages
Nowadays, we tend to exchange messages with our friends and colleagues using multiple communication platforms. For example, we may start with a causal WhatsApp conversation and then move to a more formal email, or we can connect with someone on LinkedIn, exchange some messages and then send a business proposal by email. Lightkey’s AI-powered prediction technology realizes the context of your content and is able to effectively offer relevant contextual predictions when switching between platforms. For example, if we exchanged some text messages on WhatsApp Web about a certain project, and then wrote a follow-up email about it, Lightkey may suggest the project name and other relevant details as they were already learnt during the WhatsApp conversation.
#5 – Easily Respond To Messages On Your PC
Our causal conversations on messaging apps like WhatsApp tend to be repetitive. “How are you?”, “Please call me when you can”, “Let’s have lunch together” are merely examples of the texts we exchange with our friends and colleagues on a daily basis. While Lightkey was designed to meet the challenges of professional content creation, it also has the ability to to learn and predict causal conversations.
#6 – Deliver Sharp Messages On Your Professional Network
LinkedIn has become extremely popular for professional networking and business opportunities. A key element to successfully promoting ourselves and our business is being able to deliver our messages using professional and sharp language. Lightkey can help you deliver your message with confidence in two ways: first, by learning your history and suggesting patterns that you already used – and essentially saving you keystrokes; and second, by suggesting contextual spelling corrections which helps you avoid typos.
#7 – Compose Emails In Lightning Speed Using Multiple Email Accounts
Lightkey’s Chrome Extension natively supports predictive text in Gmail, Outlook Mail and Yahoo Mail. Many of use multiple emails accounts for different purposes (for example: a business email account and a personal email account). Using its machine learning capabilities Lightkey learns your typing patterns, regardless of which mail account you’re using and will help increase your productivity over time using its multi-word prediction feature. In this example we can see Lightkey’s multi-word prediction technology in action using Outlook mail, suggesting the rest of the sentence including the ending period.
