WordLogic launches predictive text input for Windows
Posted on 30-Mar-2005 08:32. | Tags Filed under: News.



WordLogic Corporation is announcing the commercial release of its WordLogic Predictive Keyboard for Desktop PCs. The software will be available for purchase via the WordLogic website as a download or ordered pre-loaded on a USB Flash Drive.

The software uses one-key operation and a prediction engine to make data entry faster. It works with any standard PC application for email, instant messaging, word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations, for Windows 2000 and Windows XP operating systems.

Initially available in English, the WordLogic Predictive Keyboard includes a personal dictionary that remembers user preferences for words and phrases. In addition, a company or individual user can create customizable lexicons for frequently used words and phrases with WordLogic's WordChunking technology, which predicts strings of words rather than just the next letter. Users are able to utilize their customized dictionaries and phrases from program to program on the same machine, and to other PCs via the USB flash drive.

When a user types the first letter of a word, an on-screen keyboard highlights the next five most common letters as well as the most frequently used words beginning with the entered letters. As the user continues to type, the selection of words is narrowed down, providing the most likely word as selectable options in the prediction window.

The desired word can then be selected by either using the mouse or keyboard. By simply holding down any letter -- for example, the next letter to be typed -- or just by holding down the spacebar -- the user activates the prediction window, and can select desired words using the arrow keys. This ability to hold a letter down while using other keys simultaneously is unique to the WordLogic software, and does not restrict key commands for other software applications running on the PC.

The WordLogic Predictive Keyboard detects new words and allows them to be added on the fly to a user's personal dictionary.

The question remains: it is a necessity on mobile phone. Will it be a hit on desktop?
