Word Flow Keyboard
Predictive text can be a real time-saver if you know the words you want and how they are spelled. It learns from your typing habits and predicts what words it thinks you will want next. On Word Flow, tap on the correct letter to complete your word while you type or tap the arrow key left or right one letter at a time. If predictive text offers up an incorrect word, just shake your device with iOS or swipe down with Android, for alternate suggestions.
Learning Spelling Patterns
Start by typing a word and press the spacebar, then you can start typing letters that are likely to be used, like ing or er. You can also search for a word based on how it sounds if you have trouble spelling. For example, type pint and select the pint icon from the predictive text bar. Once you find your desired word, tap it to complete your sentence. If there is more than one possible word when you tap a predictive text entry, tap any of them to insert them into your document without completing the full phrase. In order to see what words might be suggested next, swipe up with two fingers from beneath the screen.
Predictive text is built into most mobile devices. It looks for clues about what you’re about to type and predicts the words before you even hit enter. This post will cover seven ways you can use predictive text features in Microsoft 365 to help work more efficiently.
