Text Prediction is familiar to us because it is a built-in feature of text-messaging software today. As we start to type a word, options come up for the possible words that the software ‘thinks’ we want to use. We can then tap on the word to add it to our message for fast communication. When using this software for students with literacy difficulties we need a phonetic and contextual text predictor, and we need to teach students to copy the word into their text, rather than tap it in. This way they are afforded the opportunity to learn the correct spelling.
