Yes, eType works with any software that runs on Microsoft Windows.

There are 3 main methods to auto-complete words:

  1. Click the word on the eType bar with your mouse
  2. Press the right and left arrows to select a word and then ENTER to auto-complete when the bar is active (see below what “active” means)
  3. Using the F keys on your computer. Press the F key with the number corresponding to the number next to the word. For example: If a word has the number 2 next to it, and you press F2 (or Function + F2 on some laptops) - it will auto-complete that word

Please note that you might have to change some options in the settings to activate all the methods described above.

To view a word translation, move your mouse over the word in the bar. A small popup with translation will appear.

Please note that we are constantly improving our dictionaries and some words will not have a translation.

  1. Click on the settings icon
  2. Go to Languages tab
  3. Select the language you want to see the translation in.

If you don’t see your language in this list, please contact us and ask for it! We can’t promise that we’ll add it but we’ll sure try!

You can press a hotkey (default CTRL+SHIFT+F11) to show or hide the bar.

You can change the hotkey by going to into Settings -> General-> “Show / hide with hotkey” then click inside the box and select your own hide hotkey.

Yes, you can, here is how you do it:

  1. Go to settings -> General tab
  2. Check the box next to: “Use Arrow keys to select words and Enter to complete”
  3. Click “Save settings”

Now, when you start typing a word, you will see suggestions in the eType bar. Use the left and right arrows to scroll through the words and press the Enter to autocomplete the word you want.

Nothing. eType is free. We only ask that you bring one friend to eType and you will get a free one year license. If you don't want to bring a friend, you can pay for the license (and yes, you can bring a new friend every year :)
