Predictive Texting in Gaelic
In a joint project bewteen Prof Kevin Scannell from St Louis University, Michael Bauer of Goireasan Gàidhlig Akerbeltz and a British company called KeyPoint Technologies who develop Open Source software, a new tool has been developed that enables predictive texting in Gaelic on any Android phone - totally free of charge.
The project started last year and the Gaelic app was launched - how appropriate is that - on Oidhche Shamhna! The tool also includes other languages such as English and as a result, it’s really easy switching between languages too. According to the Irish technology group Nascanna.com, it’s the best tool of its kind there is at the moment!
And if you’re a language nut - you can also get it in Irish and Manx Gaelic!
