WordLogic has launched software to enable disabled users and non-native English speakers to type in their documents more quickly.
The software, called Predictive Keyboard, anticipates what a user is trying to type by analysing the first one or two keystrokes, and then putting possible continuations on the screen. As the user continues to type, the selection of words is narrowed down.
Predictive Keyboard comes with a standard dictionary of 31,000 words and phrases, which users can add to.
The software is aimed at PC users with disabilities or who aren't native English speakers. The package could be useful in offshore customer contact centres, where foreign workers’ written English may not be as good as their spoken English.
Predictive Keyboard costs £14 as a download, or £28 on a USB key fob.
