Prediction Options Window Tab

Always Bring Prediction Window to Top

If this option is checked, the prediction window will always stay on top of other applications when prediction is on. When Prediction goes to sleep (displays the Zzzzzz message) it will sink to the bottom to allow the full screen display for the application which doesn't require word prediction.

Use Semicolon for Selection

If this option is checked, the semicolon key will be used to select the first word from the prediction window allowing ten words to be directly selectable from the keyboard. This keeps a fast typist on the home row more. To type a semicolon with this option checked, turn word prediction off by pressing 0 (zero) then ; then ;0 (semicolon zero) to turn prediction back on.

Show Selection Numbers

If this option is not checked, the Prediction window will not show numbers next to the words in the window. This is generally done when words are going to be picked from the prediction window exclusively by clicking with the mouse. If this option is unchecked, we recommend changing the Number/Word Separator on the More tab to nothing.

Allow Selections when Minimized

If this option is checked, the Prediction window will allow you to choose words from the prediction window using the numbers and semicolon keys even when it is minimized. Regardless of this setting, when the Prediction window is minimized, the number and semicolon keys will work as they are set with the Use Semicolon for Selection option above and with Words in Window on the More tab.

This option is primarily intended for use when Aurora Prediction is being used as a spell as you type system. See Spell Check as you Type on the Spell tab for more information.

Read the Word Under the Mouse Cursor

If this option is checked, any time you put the mouse cursor over a word in the Prediction window it will be highlighted in red (if you have Use Color to Indicate Word Type checked) and spoken. You need to have selected a speech synthesizer in Voice Options for this to work.

Use Color to Indicate Word Type

If this option is checked, words in the Prediction window will be color coded to indicate additional information about them.

Blue words sound like the word you are typing but are not spelled the same.
Green words are Homonyms.
Red words are currently being spoken.
All other words are Black.

Prediction Window Tracks the Cursor

When turned on, this causes the Prediction window to follow the Cursor (Caret) in many applications. If there is insufficient room for the Prediction window between the Caret and the edge of the screen, the Prediction window will move to an alternate position where it can fit.

Note: This feature does not work in all applications, it only works in those that use the Windows standard Caret. If it does not work in the application you want to use, check if the application has any accessibility options, as often such applications give you the choice to enable updating of Windows standard Caret.

Show Homonyms

If this option is checked, words that have homonyms information will be displayed with the additional information. If you have Use Color to Indicate Word Type checked, homonyms will appear in green. Also, any time you type a word that has homonyms information, a bell sound will occur. Homonyms usually include the word's homonyms plus an example of correct usage. For example:

their - they're, there; ex. it is their cat.

Edit Word

You can add your own homonyms entries using the Dictionary Editor.

Show Definition

If this option is checked, definitions will be displayed for words that have them. Definitions are usually short and only list the main definition for words that mean more than one thing for example:

their - belonging to them

You can add your own definition entries or edit existing ones by using the Dictionary Editor.

Show Thesaurus

If this option is checked, thesaurus words will be displayed for words that have them. For example:

frill - addition,adornment,amenity,beading,beauties,bedizenment

You can add your own thesaurus entries using the Dictionary Editor.

Show Note

If this option is checked, notes you have entered about a word will be displayed. You can add your own notes using the Dictionary Editor.

Choose Font

Press this button to choose the font that will be used in the prediction window. The Prediction Window's text and background colors are controlled by Windows and will match what you have chosen for your other applications' windows.
