Text Predictions is a word completion tool that can help to complete long or difficult words. Text Predictions is available in Word Online through Glow and Office 365.

Text predictions - an overview

Text Predictions is located in the Editor tool in Word Online. As well as Text Predictions, Editor includes a range of useful tools to support literacy such as powerful Spelling and Grammar support.

Unlike Word Prediction programs, which predict words as they are typed, usually in a drop-down list, Text Predictions helps to complete words, particularly longer and more complex words. Used in combination with text-to-speech, Text Predictions can help to improve spelling accuracy and writing speed.

The following video explains how to find and turn on Text Predictions and demonstrates them in action.
