From their README
This Alfred workflow is a paste queue and a character-by-character paster in one.
The character-by-character paste takes whatever is on the clipboard and pastes it one character at a time to the frontmost application, giving the impression of typing. It can be triggered by the default hotkey ⇧⌃⌘V.
The paste queue is invoked with ⌃⌘V. It splits the content of the clipboard according to a delimiter (defaults to a blank line), and gives the first entry to the character-by-character paster. The remainder is copied to the clipboard.
For instance, if the following is on the clipboard:
This is the first line. This is the second. // This line is skipped. This is the fourth line.
Then pressing ⌃⌘V will paste "This is the first line.". Pressing it again will paste "This is the second.", and pressing it a third time will paste "This is the fourth line.".
Note that the workflow does not actually paste, but simulates keypresses. Hence non-ASCII characters do not work.
The character-by-character paster will be aborted when pressing a modifier key. This comes in handy when you accidentally pasted a large amount of text.
The default delimiter is "", and the default skip prefix is "//". Both can be changed by adjusting their variables ("delimiter" and "skip_prefix", respectively).
