Next generation Android Swype keyboard : Nuance Com-munications Inc. announced the next generation Android Swype keyboard, a four in one keyboard that is a revolutionary step forward in the way people communicate and input text on their mobile devices. The next generation Swype keyboard now combines touch and voice input with unique adaptive capabilities to understand users’ preferences over time - becoming smarter and more personalized every time they Swype, speak, tap and write. Staying connected has never been more exciting as Swype provides consumers with more choice in how they input text, and now interprets a user’s personal language style - ultimately providing an amazingly fast, flexible, and accurate experience.
Personal Swype dictionary
Swype now includes a personal dictionary. Every new word a user enters on the Swype keyboard gets added to their personal dictionary for speech and text, and you can even have Swype learn from emails, texts and posts. These updates are then mapped into Swype’s unified language model, so with the personal Swype dictionary, people can immediately speak or write that same word no matter how unique or specialized.
Swype languages & next word prediction
Swypers everywhere can communicate in any language they speak, as Swype now supports the download of over 55 languages right from the device. Swype’s next word prediction is amazingly intelligent as Nuance has integrated capabilities from its renowned XT9 portfolio. Swype gets smarter based on historical usage, so prediction becomes more accurate with each use.
Android Swype keyboard options
Android Swype now delivers a four in one keyboard. People can Swype from letter to letter; type rapidly with predictive text input powered by XT9; speak their text naturally through a fully integrated Dragon button; or, simply write letters, words and symbols using their fingertip. Further, users can switch back and forth between modalities on the fly - providing the ultimate Swype keyboard personalization. “People use their keyboards every day in every way - so input needs to be fast and simple,” said Michael Thompson, executive vice president and general manager, Nuance Mobile. “The new Swype keyboard ushers in a new era of input, where the keyboard adapts to the users’ unique way of communicating every time they swype, speak, tap or write.”
