    Need of Predictive Text for this Forum

    Phew... I'm tired.

    I've got predictive text on here if I use my phone. It's a great help but sometimes it does it's own thing and it can be quite embarrassing 🤤

      I can't believe predictive text isn't part of the whole set up.

        Predictive text works from my apple devices

          I use the on screen keyboard on my computer or ipad - I'm using it now. This has good predictive text (words not phrases)

            Graham You're tech savvy - can't you get the onscreen keyboard to work on a web form/text box?

            I asked a similar question to Smartbox Grid 3 users recently as a person I know of couldn't seem to find a predictive text keyboard to type on any web page with eye gaze. I don't share your opinoin that the onus is on the MNDA/vBulletin to provide such a facility, given they exist, but do agree they should work on every website where typing is required.

            My Windows 10 predictive (onscreen) keyboard works with eye gaze in every website I use.

            Hope you find a solution - I'm sure you know you can copy and paste from Word, if nothing else.

            Love Ellie.

              I've begun using my phone more than my Chromebook for email or posts because it suggests words. I have auto-correct turned off, but suggestions turned on so I can choose a suggestion but it doesn't change what I've already typed. Voice input worked very well until I started to lose my speech.

                GaryM Have you checked in Chromebook's ease of access to see if there is an Enable Next Word Prediciton? I know it does Swipe Typing - is that of any use?

                    Can't believe that I've only just discovered the on-screen keyboard on my Chromebook. Thanks again, Ellie. Computing and technology are supposed to be my specialist subject. Doh!

                      Thanks guys,

                      I am writing this using the pop-up keyboard. There are problems however.

                      The picture below shows that the pop-up keyboard totally obscures the text box and so I am unable to view what I type. Following Ellie’s suggestion, I am now using Word and I am going to copy and paste.

                      The problem now is that my finger is not responsive enough to dab the space bar and so the keyboard types multiple spaces and thinks I have finished the sentence.

                      In this country we have DDA2014, so it is incumbent on the MNDA in law to provide a usable service.

                      It has taken me nearly 2 hours to write this.

                          I am now using the smaller pop-up keyboard and actually I don't have to click the space because it separates the words automatically. The window floats too so I can position away from the text box . phew I am knacked .

                            Graham, sounds as if using eye gaze would be less frustrating and tiring for you.

                              Thanks Ellie, eye-gaze is too slow for VS2019 work. i have made a bit more progress with touch keyboard settings but i write faster freehand. At least MNDA are aware of the problem.
