Automatically predict/complete words

This feature includes auto-completion of words and phrases based on the typed text. This can help to correct spelling and to speed up text entry, especially when using a limited keypad or an alternative input device.

Discussion by Disabilities (Benefits & Preferred Behaviors)

Physical Disabilities

People with physical disabilities may use alternative input devices that enter text more slowly than a conventional keyboard, so automatic completions of words and phrases can greatly increase the speed of their typing.

Cognitive, Language, Learning Disabilities & Low Literacy

People with cognitive, language, and learning disabilities may have difficulty spelling words correctly or coming up with phrases quickly. Word and phrase completion tools can increase their speed and accuracy of typing.
