History & Predictive Text

History & Predictive Text

Predictive text will add a new challenge to the historians of our future. Before, reading through journals, we just muddled our way through the occasional misspelling or illegible word. Now, we need to be ready for strange word transpositions. Words appearing at random. Historians will need to incorporate an understanding of querty, and the possible mis-adjustment contemporary predictive text programs can use for substitutes.
