Word Prediction

A software application that enables a user to select a desired word from a computer generated list. The application predicts the word to be completed and subsequent words based on the first one or two letters typed by the user, word frequency, and context. The word may then be selected from the list and inserted into the text by typing a number, clicking the mouse, or scanning with a switch. Some packages also include features such as dynamic spell checking, text to speech utilities, and hotkey's for frequently used words.
