Today we are going to look at a powerful word prediction app: Typ-O HD. If you are familiar with Assistive Technology word prediction software (such as Co:Writer and WordQ) - this is the APP version of those tools.
For people who struggle with spelling and constructing sentences, word prediction is a powerful tool. A person simply starts a word and the tool provides suggestions that it "thinks" the person is trying to type. Once your word is displayed, simply select it and it is typed into your document.
Some of the additional features of Typ-O HD include:
Typ-O finds your word (and the next one) in its vast model of common English words and phrases.
Text to speech
Listen to your word before you select it. Hear your words and your sentences, before you email or SMS them.
Perfect spelling optional
Typ-O knows the most common spelling mistakes, and will often suggest words even if you have misspelled them.
In addition, the iPad version of this app includes spell check, a file management features and the ability to choose from four different voices.
Typ-O HD is developed by SecondGuess apps and costs $14.99
