What is Text Predictor?
The Text Predictor is a Software As A Service package that helps users to compose text in English, easier, faster and better than ever.
Does it log my text somewhere ?
Neither the Text Predictor NOR AItype will log any of the user's text. The text that is written is analyzed online,
Can anyone reverse engineer and figure out my text ?
The Text Predictor uses a proprietary protocol to communicate with it's servers.
How does it work ?
Text Predictor suggests words as you type. The suggestions offer correct spelling, grammar, and even translation of words for you into the foreign language that you configure. Text Predictor communicates online with a huge database of common and uncommon phrases and words. By using a sophisticated mathematical algorithm, Text Predictor is able to offer the right word based on the context of your previously entered words.
How do I work with it ?
Upon installation, the client needs to be configured with the user's preferences: Translation Language, Suggestion list color scheme , List contrast level and Application Ignore list.
Experienced users can continue selecting words from the list and "chain" them one to another until the entire sentence is complete.
Can I ignore it's suggestions ?
Oh yeah! If you are a fast typer, you can ignore completely the suggestion list, as though you've never used it , and it'll disappear from the screen.
What do I need to install in order to get it?
Just download the software from the AItype web site, and the installation process does the rest. The installation process checks if you have .Net Framework support, and will install it right from Microsoft website if necessary. You will need to enter your email address in order to activate it. Once done with the installation, hit the shortcut and you're online.
Does it interfere with my writing?
You don't need to be concerned. Just type as you normally would, and watch the suggestion list offering words. You can ignore suggestions, or you can decide to use the suggested words either by clicking on them or by highlighting them with the arrow keys and pressing Enter.
Does it change the way I'm writing now?
This depends on the user. One possibility is to use the suggestion list for all or most of your writing. Use the left hand to key in beginnings of words and the right hand for selecting the words you want. Words are selected either with the arrow keys and Enter, or with the mouse. Another way to use the software is to type as you normally would, and use the suggestion list only as a way of finding just the right word, or to check the correct spelling of a word.
Will it suggest words that I didn't think of?
This is the whole idea. The Text Predictor will try to predict words according to their context.
Does it support all applications?
Our software supports a growing list of applications. All supported applications are automatically detected, and if a user doesn't want support for a particular application, he or she can easily configure the software to ignore it.
Can I use it without an Internet connection?
While running, the Text Predictor requires an online connection to the Internet. In order to be quick and responsive, the user's computer does not hold any information, but queries an online database for the acquisition of information. The database is c2onstantly being updated and therefore, is always relevant.
Can I use it when I'm doing Instant Messaging ?
It depends on the Instant Messaging software that is used. Generally speaking, the IM software applications that use browsers (Facebook , Gmail, etc.) are supported. Currently, Internet Explorer and Firefox are supported, and we’ll be adding more applications in the future.
Does it support other languages?
Currently, the Text Predictor supports English. As such, it is a particularly useful aid for English Second Language (ESL) users. In versions to come, we will add support for European languages as well.
How can I tell if I chose the right word?
In the premium version, there is a built in dictionary that translates the suggestion list. By running through the list and watching the translation of the suggested word, one can tell if the chosen word is the right word.
Can I choose a different style of writing, for example Legal style ?
This feature is planned for a future version, which will be available for Premium users.
Does it always suggests words in the right grammar and syntax?
Not necessarily. Our software offers real language, as it is used every day. It may suggest words that are not perfect English but are of the right relevance. For example, slang terms can be offered if the words are relevant enough to be suggested.
Can I involve two languages in the same sentence ?
Future versions (premium) will have multi-language support. The software will automatically identify language and will offer words according to that language.
Does it "learn" my style and language ?
Not Currently. In future versions, premium users will enjoy the capability of the software to “learn” the individual user's language, vocabulary and style. Of course, the user needs to be responsible NOT to “feed” the software wrong and mistyped words.
Do I have an obligation to purchase it, or I can try it first for free?
You can try the basic version for free for an entire year , until you decide whether to purchase the software or to purchase the premium version.
What if I decide to purchase a license, and regret it after a while ?
You may stop the subscription anytime you like. You will be charged just for the last month that the software was in use.
