How to authorize TypeIt4Me to expand your typed abbreviations for you

When you first launch TypeIt4Me it will ask you for permission to control your computer using accessibility services. This is required so that it can expand your abbreviations when you type them. Follow these steps to ensure that TypeIt4Me has the permission it needs to do its job.

On macOS 14 (Sonoma) and macOS 13 (Ventura):

1: Open System Settings

2: Click Privacy & Security

3: On the right, scroll down and click on Accessibility

4: On the Accessibility screen, underneath the heading that says “Allow the apps below to control your computer”, locate TypeIt4Me in the list and make sure its toggle is switched on.
