The easiest way to type mathematical and scientific symbols (and foreign characters*) on your Windows PC

* Danish, Esperanto, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, IPA for English, IPA for all languages, Italian, Math/Science, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish

1

Run TypeIt

2

Choose your keyboard – for example, Math / Science

Click the TypeIt icon in your taskbar to choose a keyboard. TypeIt will remember your last setting the next time you run it.


Why you’ll love TypeIt:

  • Obvious keyboard shortcuts. In the math/science keyboard, just press Alt + the key that’s similar (by shape or sound) to the character you want to type. For example, to type μ, press Alt + M.

    Alternatively, you can type a letter like m, and then tap Ctrl to turn it into μ.

  • You can keep your existing keyboard layout. TypeIt gives you the symbols you need, but doesn’t force a whole new layout on you.* It doesn’t change the way you type numbers and punctuation, so you won’t have to get used to new ways of typing characters like ", ? or /.

  • Pleasantly fast typing. Why copy & paste characters from webpages when you can type them directly into your applications and Web pages?
  • You can use it offline. Flaky Internet access? No worries. With the TypeIt app, your foreign characters are always available.
  • Pop-up help is always a keystroke away (see example) – just press Alt + F1. You probably won’t need it, though :)
  • Includes the proper punctuation: curly quotes (“ ”) and long dashes (– —).
  • Doesn’t get in the way. I like software that does the job without making a big fuss. That’s why TypeIt consumes very little memory and CPU, and generally doesn’t bother you.

Upgrade your keyboard

TypeIt is the best foreign-language- and mathematical-symbol-typing experience in the known universe (by the way, here are some comments from happy users). You can upgrade your keyboard with TypeIt for just $17.50 (Extended Edition) or $12.50 (Standard Edition).

  • For a one-time fee, you get a lifetime license with free updates (minor fixes and improvements), good for up to 3 computers in your household (for example, your desktop PC, your laptop and your partner’s laptop) or one computer in an organization. There is also a volume license for organizations – see below.
  • TypeIt takes only a few clicks to install. And it contains only TypeIt. No crapware. No advertisements.
  • Risk-free purchase: If you change your mind within 30 days of your purchase, you can get a problem-free refund.
