The paper discusses the development of predictive communication aids which anticipate users' intentions. The communication aid for the disabled adapts to the vocabulary of its user and offers optimised predictions. The system employs a microcomputer-based typing aid. It exploits linguistic redundancy in order to reduce the time and effort involved in typing text. It can personalise the data on which predictions are made. Using a disabled persons interface, a user exploits these predictions to improve the efficiency of communication.
