The Benefits of Word Prediction for Learners with Literacy Difficulties

If you have sent messages with your phone the chances are you have used word prediction. When you type, either on a phone, a tablet or on a keyboard, word prediction software offers a list of suggested words which closely matches the first few letters that have been typed. Word prediction can help learners with literacy difficulties to spell more accurately and can increase writing speed.

In this webinar, Craig will explore a range of word prediction features and tools such as topic dictionaries, flexible spelling and next word prediction and explain how they can be used to overcome difficulties with writing and reading.
