VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - May 18, 2006) -

The WordLogic Predictive Keyboard™ provides an economical alternative for persons with disabilities

WordLogic Corporation (OTCBB:WLGC), a leading-edge developer and licenser of advanced multilingual predictive text input software, announced today that the WordLogic Predictive Keyboard™ has been recognized by the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation for the State of Florida as an approved rehabilitation technology.

Florida is the third state to approve WordLogic as an Assistive Technology for State-run rehabilitation agencies. WordLogic is also approved in the States of Rhode Island and Connecticut as an enabling technology for persons with disabilities.

"The WordLogic Predictive Keyboard is extremely effective for persons with fine motor skill limitations," commented Dr. David Stirling, WordLogic's Executive Vice President. "We have developed a very effective and relatively low-cost solution for persons who cannot use a traditional PC keyboard."

In April, 2006, the Company sent evaluation copies of the WordLogic Predictive Keyboard™ to all 51 State-run Assistive Technology Agencies and is currently in discussions with a number of states to be approved as a rehabilitation and/or assistive technology in their State.

How the WordLogic Predictive Keyboard Works

Built on the powerful WordLogic prediction engine, the WordLogic Predictive Keyboard allows persons with disabilities a virtual on-screen keyboard.

When a user types the first letter of a word, an on-screen keyboard highlights the next five most common letters as well as the most frequently used words beginning with the entered letters. As the user continues to type, the selection of words is narrowed down, providing the most likely word as selectable options in the prediction window. It also has the capability to have short phrases of text predicted and allows users to incorporate reoccurring phrases or data strings such as phone numbers and addresses. The desired word or phrase can then be selected by using the mouse.

The WordLogic Predictive Keyboard also provides a powerful entry system that adapts to a user's personal writing style and vocabulary. The software incorporates a customizable dictionary, a calculator, and a method of typing multilingual symbols.

WordLogic Predictive Keyboard also utilizes its patent-pending WordChunking™ technology. WordChunks™ are parts of longer words and/or phrases and construct the longer word or phrase with a few simple commands. As an example, a user can input "talk..." to get "talking..." and then "talking about..." and finally, "talking about the future".
