ABSTRACT Visual-cognitive loads influence the effectiveness of word prediction technology. Adjusting parameters of word prediction programs can lessen visual-cognitive loads. This study evaluated the benefits of WordQ word prediction software for users' performance when the prediction window was moved to a personal digital assistant (PDA) device placed at the keyboard level. Twenty-one young people aged 11–14 (11 new users and 10 experienced users) participated in the study. The Canadian… Expand
