Gus! Word Prediction places an "always on top"
window on the computer screen.
You can stretchor shrink the window to any size you want, and the font size adjusts
automatically. As you input each character, Gus! Word Prediction revises the
displayed "word list". When you see the desired word, simply click
word or press the corresponding function key (F1 - F9) and Gus! Word Prediction
will complete the word. Predicts current and next word based on the
of use. Also includes abbreviation expansion ("gm" = "good
Word Completion (current
As you begin to enter a word (eg. the letter "a"),
the box displays a list of choices based on what letters you have typed. As
you continue to type, the list narrows the choices down further and further. This feature
is called "word completion." To select on of the words from the list, simply
press the corresponding function key (F1-F9). The program learns new words as you type
(Autolearn) and builds your own personalized vocabulary. In fact, the words are presented based
on "frequency of use"; meaning the words that have been used most often
appear at the top. In our example above, you can see that the words are not in
alphabetical order. They are in order of frequency.
Word Prediction (next word)
After you finish entering a word, the box will display a list
of words that normally follows the word you just entered, based on your own vocabulary. For
example, suppose you have entered the phrase "I want to go home" on
more than one occasion. Hence forth, after you type the word "want" the
box will display the word "to" as an offering for the next word. If you
select the word "to", the box will display the word "go"
along with 8 other words that have, in the past, followed the word "go." As you
can see, word completion and word prediction will greatly accelerate your
"typing" speed with switch/scanning.
This feature greatly improves typing speed by inserting long
words or complete sentences with only a few keystrokes. For example, an abbreviation could
be "wayg" which automatically expands to become "where are you going this
weekend?" Much faster than typing word by word!
Every so often, it is useful
to run a spelling check of your
dictionary. Simply right click on the Gus! Word Prediction window and let it go!

Automatically speaks as you type.
The maximum dictionary size is over 100,000 words!
