About Phraze-It® On-Screen Typing Keyboard Software

by Prevalent Devices LLC

The Phraze-It® Premium Keyboard – Portrait Mode

Phraze-It® is a breakthrough on-screen keyboard application that enables comfortable finger-typing or thumbing text entry and editing on large, adult-sized touch screen buttons on your Windows Mobile™ Pocket PC™. The Phraze-It® soft keyboard significantly improves text entry and mobile productivity by enabling comfortable and efficient finger typing of a lot of text, and easy correcting and editing. A choice of eight keyboard layouts also offer mobile typing and one-handed or two-handed thumbing input to enhance the mobile user experience.

Designed by Prevalent Devices LLC and based upon patented technologies, Phraze-It® software optimizes the size of both the on-screen typing keys and the visual display space to let you see and edit lines of text you have typed. This unique mobile productivity software embodies the vision of bringing to handheld display screen devices, an easy to use on-screen keyboard that is accurate, efficient, comfortable, intuitive and quickly learned. Phraze-It® retains the capabilities of, but is more intuitive than, QWERTY keyboards that do not translate well to handhelds. Now, there is no need for hunting and pecking with a stylus to find tiny, densely packed keys on your PDA or to write characters on a glass surface of your PDA screen or for lugging a laptop or an additional folding keyboard. Phraze-It® also provides freedom from awkward thumbing boards. Phraze-It® for the Pocket PC enables users to optimally type or thumb text entry for messaging, emails, word processing documents, browsers and other full text entry needs.

Using Phraze-It® for Pocket PC

Phraze-It® was specially invented to optimize text entry and editing on handheld devices using a small number of easily-typed large buttons in a familiar order. It’s simple to use. The desired key is very easy to find and reach, thereby engendering automaticity in typing. We all know the five vowels A, E, I, O and U. The Phraze-It® keyboard initially displays these five vowels in their familiar alphabetical sequence. When you press a vowel key, that vowel is displayed with the small group of consonants that immediately follow the selected vowel in alphabetical order. It is a small group of vowels because there are no more than five consonants in each vowel group. Select the desired letter to enter it into your display screen. Take a look at the AlphaPrompt below and notice that all consonants in the alphabet are preceded by a vowel.

Alpha Prompt

Notice the Alpha Prompt above the keyboard shown.






The letter “B” is preceded by “A”. The letter “G” is preceded by “E” and so forth.

Typing Vowels
Using Phraze-It®, you only need to type any vowel button twice to enter that vowel.

Typing Consonants
To enter a consonant, just type its preceding vowel first and then type the consonant. For instance,

Type A and B for the letter


Type E and G for the letter


Type I and M for the


Type O and R for the letter


Type U and V for the letter


The patented Phraze-It® method is very easy to use and intuitive because it is already familiar. You can rapidly associate any consonant with its preceding vowel to enable very efficient and accurate typing. With minimal practice, thinking of “M” as I – M or “R” as O-R becomes automatic.

Typing Words
Easily enter a word such as “cheers”

Typing Numbers
Entering numerals is just as intuitive. With the 0 button and 5 button, all single digit numerals can be easily entered. Notice that the numerals following 0 are 1, 2, 3, and 4, while the numerals following 5 are 6, 7, 8, and 9. To enter a 0 or 5 just type that button twice. For the number 3 simply type 0 and then 3, and for the number 7, type the 5 and then the 7.

Type a 0 on the premium keyboard and the 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4 are displayed.

On the standard keyboard, the numbers buttons can be displayed or hidden.

Reduced Keystrokes
Phraze-It® comes with methods to reduce the number of keystrokes to fewer than two.
Any vowel can be entered using only one keystroke by holding down that vowel key. You can change the settings to timeout mode so that multiple consonants from the same vowel set may be entered without first typing their respective vowels. See the manual for how to reduce keystrokes.
