WordLogic Makes the QWERTY Keyboard Smarter with Commercial Release of New Predictive Keyboard(TM) for Desktop PCs

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- WordLogic Corporation (BULLETIN BOARD: WLGC) , a progressive developer and licenser of advanced multilingual predictive text input software, today announced the commercial release of its WordLogic Predictive Keyboard for Desktop PCs. The software will be available for purchase beginning March 31, via the WordLogic website, http://www.wordlogic.com/, as a download or ordered pre-loaded on a USB Flash Drive ("UFD").

The software, an intuitive text entry system, utilizes one-key operation and a prediction engine to make data entry fast, efficient, and simpler for virtually everyone who types. Created for educational, personal and business use, the software enables all users to increase their typing accuracy on the standard QWERTY keyboard. It works with any standard PC application for email, instant messaging, word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations, for Windows 2000 and Windows XP operating systems.

Initially available in English, the WordLogic Predictive Keyboard includes a personal dictionary that remembers user preferences for words and phrases. In addition, a company or individual user can create customizable lexicons for frequently used words and phrases with WordLogic's WordChunking(TM) technology, which predicts strings of words rather than just the next letter to vastly increase typing speed.

The WordLogic Predictive Keyboard UFD system brings the added dimension of interoperability among software programs as well as devices. Users are able to utilize their customized dictionaries and phrases from program to program on the same machine, and to other PCs via the USB flash drive.

In unveiling the commercial version of the software, WordLogic has increased the functionality of the software, allowing users to input and solve mathematical equations and formulas. This calculation function allows users to input various, mathematical equations and recall these equations through the predictive typing function.

"The Predictive Keyboard for Desktop PCs fosters learning in typing as well as spelling and reading skills. The software is especially useful for those who are acquiring English as a second language, writing in a foreign language, have learning disabilities -- or simply 'spelling challenged'," said Franklin R Evanshen, WordLogic's Chairman and CEO.

How the Software Works

When a user types the first letter of a word, an on-screen keyboard highlights the next five most common letters as well as the most frequently used words beginning with the entered letters. As the user continues to type, the selection of words is narrowed down, providing the most likely word as selectable options in the prediction window.

The desired word can then be selected by either using the mouse or keyboard. By simply holding down any letter -- for example, the next letter to be typed -- or just by holding down the spacebar -- the user activates the prediction window, and can select desired words using the arrow keys. This ability to hold a letter down while using other keys simultaneously is unique to the WordLogic software, and does not restrict key commands for other software applications running on the PC.

Once comfortable with the WordLogic Predictive Keyboard, a user has the option to display only the predicted words, or completely hide the prediction window, providing an unobstructed view of the applications with already unrestricted use of the keys. At any time, a user can invoke the prediction window by simply holding down a letter or the spacebar.

The WordLogic Predictive Keyboard "intuitively" detects new words and allows them to be added on the fly to a user's personal dictionary. A similar functionality is offered for phrases through use of Control-C.
