WordLogic Corporation, a leading-edge technology company developing advanced methods of text and information entry, announces that its patented predictive text solution is being adopted by people living with cerebral palsy to help overcome challenges they face with everyday written communication.

The WordLogic predictive text solution - used as typing software and a research tool - is now also being utilized as a tool to help people living with the neurological condition in order to eliminate the frustrations they face when attempting to type emails, letters, shopping lists or complete a host of many other everyday typing tasks.

Cerebral palsy is caused by damage to the motor control centers of the developing brain which impairs the body's ability to control movement and posture. Symptoms of cerebral palsy range from involuntary movements and difficulty with motor skills, such as typing or using scissors, to more profound effects such as being unable to walk or maintain balance. These symptoms make everyday communication tasks extremely frustrating for people living with the condition, but WordLogic's easy to use software is designed to accelerate the entry of text and information.

Richard Iddenden has been living with cerebral palsy since birth. Richard turned to WordLogic's assistive technology solution in a bid to beat the frustration he felt when faced with any typing tasks. Richard comments: "As part of my condition I have involuntary movements, which means that when I am typing I often hit extra keys or the wrong keys altogether. I can only use one finger to type with, which makes the whole process very time consuming as well as frustrating."

Richard tried several predictive text and voice recognition software packages which are currently on the market, but failed to find any that were suitable for his needs. He added: "Other assistive technology packages are aimed at schools, colleges and larger organizations so they were just too expensive for me."

Richard's frustration ended when he discovered WordLogic, he said: "WordLogic is a wonderful enabler. It has cut down my workload considerably and has lowered my frustration levels. The software is easy to use and affordable. On top of everything else, the customer service provided by the company is excellent."

Unlike many assistive technologies, WordLogic adapts to the user by learning text that is frequently used by that individual including words, phrases, names, email addresses and phone numbers. The software features dictionary, spellchecker, calculator, multi-lingual symbol capability and fast access to internet sites from common software applications. The software also incorporates the major internet search engines (e.g. Google) that enable a user to highlight a word, press the search key and automatically initiate a search or retrieve the dictionary definition of the word online. In addition, WordLogic offers a smartphone and PDA version of the predictive text software that is compatible with Microsoft Windows Mobile devices.

Upon typing a letter the system offers the user a list of five completion candidates at a time, based on more than 90,000 dictionary entries, which can be rapidly selected and inserted into the text. The software package is available on a portable USB Flash Drive. This stand-alone version requires no installation, which means it can be taken anywhere in the world and plugged into any PC or laptop to be used instantly.
