(ABCZ Software also works with the Shorthand/SpeedType expanders. If you own Shorthand, You can order and view the sample files, which will display in any text editor such as WordPad, NotePad or UltraEdit. The short forms are different in some cases because Instant Text and Shorthand work differently.)

An example of how ABCZ and IT work is shown below. The ABCZMT2 glossary has been opened. The letters "ca" have been typed. Any of the phrases which appear in the advisory are easily entered into the text using various Instant Text methods such as typing the number next to the entry.
Judy's Drug Lists
Here again the letters "ca" have been typed with Judy's Generic Drug list opened. Great keystroke savings are possible with medications using ABCZ and Instant Text. Any left to right combination can be used to target a word. E.g. you could type "cbgl" or "cabli" and get "cabergoline".
Terri's Medical Specialty Glossaries
Here Terri's LabPath glossary has been opened and the letters "cu" typed. Again, huge keystroke savings can result with either individual words or phrases. E.g. "cu5" and a marker key (total of 4 strokes) would yield "culture and sensitivity test" - 28 characters (a 700% gain).
