CE Software has released QuicKeys 5.0, the latest version of its automation utility.

Version 5.0 can recognize voice commands that trigger shortcuts, and has day-of-the-week timers that perform actions at specified times. It also has tabbed and pop-out toolbars and other time-saving features.

Shortcut names have been increased in length from 13 to 250 characters, and the text tool now holds eight times the amount of text.

QuicKeys 5.0 is available from CE Software's Web site priced at $99.95. A 30-day demo is also available for download.
