Word Prediction can enable you to develop your
writing skills by providing the tools to construct sentences with ease.
Our word predictor learns your style of writing and predicts the word
you want to use next. It also incorporates a prediction database based
on a 100 million-word corpus. As you type a list of suggestions will
appear in the Prediction Panel.
Indicators beside each word show context accuracy. This means that you
will be less likely to make a grammatical error so increasing the
quality of your work.
Our Word Predictor will also predict words for when you spell
phonetically. This improves the quality of the prediction suggestion
list and ensures that if you are prone to phonetic errors you will find
the Word Prediction more useful.
Word Prediction will allow you to produce high quality work and reduce
the time it takes to do so.
