Innovative WordLogic Predictive Text Solution is Adopted as a New Assistive Technology for Dyslexia Sufferers

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 19, 2009) - WordLogic Corporation (OTCBB:WLGC), a leading-edge technology company developing advanced methods of text and information entry, announces that its patented predictive text solution is being adopted as an effective tool for the millions of dyslexia sufferers worldwide. The patented WordLogic solution is used as typing software, a research tool and an aid in language learning, but is now being utilized by dyslexia sufferers who struggle with everyday writing tasks.

WordLogic delivers predictive text solutions designed to accelerate the entry of text and information. Upon typing a letter the system offers the user a list of five completion candidates at a time, based on more than 90,000 dictionary entries, which can be rapidly selected and inserted into the text. The software package is available on a portable USB Flash Drive. This stand-alone version requires no installation, which means it can be taken anywhere in the world and plugged into any PC or laptop to be used instantly.

40-year-old Craig Spencer has battled with dyslexia throughout his life. Craig, who successfully set up and runs his own hospitality business, has used the WordLogic solution for three months. He said: "Having dyslexia massively dents your confidence and you spend much of your life trying to find ways to cope with the condition. School work was a struggle and working in an office environment forced me to rely on other people to write things for me. It was so frustrating not being able to do things like write emails or draw up contracts for clients."

There are several predictive text and voice recognition software packages currently on the market, but Craig found that WordLogic was the only one that was flexible and intuitive enough for his needs. He added: "This software works with all other Microsoft Windows compatible software packages, so I can load up a word-processing or spreadsheet package and use WordLogic in conjunction with it. It has completely changed my business life, because now I can take care of all emails, letters and general office administration jobs that I would have usually delegated to others."

WordLogic's software adapts to the user by learning text that is frequently used by that individual including words, phrases, names, email addresses and phone numbers. The software features dictionary, spellchecker, calculator, multi-lingual symbol capability and fast access to internet sites from common software applications. The software also incorporates the major internet search engines that enable a user to highlight a word, press the search key and automatically initiate a search or retrieve the dictionary definition of the word online. In addition, WordLogic offers a smartphone and PDA version of the predictive text software that is compatible with Microsoft Windows Mobile devices.

Craig said: "It has taken a lot of hard work for me to come to terms with dyslexia. With experience you realize you can find ways to avoid your problems, but with no cure out there more sufferers are turning to this kind of technology for answers. For me, WordLogic is a breath of fresh air and has been a real life-saver when it comes to my business."

"Craig is one of many wonderfully happy customers that have discovered WordLogic's technology and how it has helped them in their lives. This story is presently being published in an assistive technology magazine to be released in the next few days," said Frank Evanshen, CEO and President of Wordlogic Corporation.
