suggestion for "Text Expander" that "learns" automatically

I've analyzed these online:
http://www.16software.com/breevy/
http://www.phraseexpress.com/
http://www.jitbit.com/autotext/
http://texter.en.softonic.com/
http://www.shortkeys.com/

However, not one of these seems to be able to "learn" as you work. Or maybe I'm missing something.

The idea is: I don't want to have my employees have to go in and "pre-program" all of the snippets of text. Because I know they won't. I want the program to run in the background and detect commonly typed phrases. Then, once it has enough data, it will give "auto-complete" options to type out the whole sentence if the user starts to type that similar sentence again. I hope I am making sense.

Anyway, do any of the above programs do this? Or is there something else?

Thanks!
