A reader is in search of a great Word Prediciton software.

I had a stroke MANY years ago and I got a HandiWord, a word prediction software that was gotten by Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation. The author AND company are no longer in existence! It has a ‘mini-screen’ predicting the words that I want to used. I got a Dell with Windows 10 last year, but it won’t take HandiWord! Sooooo, I have to used the Toshiba with Windows 7! Does Windows 10 have an app that does the word prediction OR someone else that has it? I am retired and live on Social Security, only, so I’m not willing to spend a lot for it.

First, if you have have access to a copy of the program, you could try running the compatibility troubleshooter in Windows 10. Click here to learn how that works.
