Microsoft will provide AI-based text prediction functions to Word for Windows starting next month
The Microsoft Productivity Tools team has previously disclosed in the road map that it is developing a text prediction function, which is mainly provided for office software suites.
Engineers train writing models through machine learning and artificial intelligence, so when users open a document to enter content, their models automatically provide vocabulary suggestions.
For example, when the user enters the first few letters of a word, the suggested vocabulary will appear in a light color mode, and the user can press TAB to confirm the vocabulary without continuing to input.
Microsoft said that the artificial intelligence-based text prediction function can track the user’s input and writing habits, so the longer the use, the higher the accuracy.
At the same time, this function also helps users reduce spelling and grammatical errors. With the text checking function, the probability of typos in copy content can be greatly reduced. This feature is still being tested, but Microsoft will push it to Word for Windows next month, and users can give it a try.
This feature currently only supports English. Microsoft has not mentioned whether it will support other languages in the future, but according to our guess, it should not be supported except English.
