Word Prediction


Word Prediction is a technology developed to assist people who have difficulty spelling and writing. As a person types, word prediction will display a list of the most probable words allowing the typist to select the word from the list. This technology can significantly reduce the number of key strokes an individual needs to make. The built-in talking dictionary lets the typist hear the definition to make sure that the word they select is the right word.


Talking Spell Check


The built-in spell check is like most other spell checkers, except that this one will read the words to you. Most people will know the right word when they hear it.


Language Model Information Summarization (LMIS)

The LMIS feature is Premier's unique information summarization technology that lets you quickly summarize the information in a document, whether it's a range of pages or an entire document. This powerful tool is constructed using language model algorithms developed by Premier Literacy and can be dynamically adjusted to meet your needs.


Everyone can benefit from these tools regardless of their role or responsibilities. LMIS lets you quickly and efficiently digest large volumes of text-based content and identify the essential ideas of any publication.
