Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Word prediction has been used to enhance the typing speed of users with dexterity difficulties since the early 1980s]. This technology has also been found to support people with dyslexia and emerging literacy. However, there has been a number of research studies which have questioned the potential for prediction to increase the typing rate. This paper presents a study in which participants with severe speech and physical impairments (SSPI) were involved in the design of innovative predictive interfaces to explore novel ways of presenting text predictions.
