QuicKeys 5.0 Adds Speech Triggers and More — CE Software has released QuicKeys 5.0, a major upgrade to the company’s long-standing macro utility (see "QuicKeys Pushes My Buttons" in TidBITS-492 for a review of QuicKeys 4). New features in QuicKeys 5.0 include speech triggers for macros, support for Multiple Users in Mac OS 9, new day-of-the-week triggers for performing actions at specified times, pop-out toolbars that save screen real estate, a screen lock function for privacy, and tabbed toolbars. Two important limitations have also been lifted – you can now name shortcuts with 250 characters of text instead of 13, and the text tool can hold 8 times as much text as before. QuicKeys 5.0 requires Mac OS 8.5 or higher (with 8.5.1 recommended), and a PowerPC-based Macintosh with 32 MB of RAM. QuicKeys 5.0 costs $100, with upgrades from 4.0 at $40, and a free 30-day demo available. [ACE]
