    Re: type-ahead add-on for Word (Word 2000)

    Can you describe what this feature is? I don't recognise the term "type-ahead".

    I did a find in OpenOffice.org 2.0's help file and didn't find type-ahead there either. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Do you mean AutoComplete?

    Microsoft Word has AutoCorrect, AutoText and Smart Tags (the latter only in Word 2002 and later), but not a dictionary-based autocomplete feature.

    See: Autotyping speed typing program (free trial download, works in several Windows programs). I haven't tried it myself.

    Word complete [was 'type-ahead']add-on (Word 2000)

    Anyone know of an add-on to give Word a feature found in OpenOffice Writer?

    Regards
    Will

    Hi, guys, sorry, used the wrong terminology. OO calls it Word Completion. OO has it as a feature with its own autocorrect. It has a default list of words of 10 characters or more, and when you type 3 characters, it fills in the rest of the word that starts with those characters. You can use, by default, enter, to select the long word offered. If you do not, you just go on typing the word you want.

    Looks useful for non typists.

    Thanks for the interest
