AppWriter Cloud update


Word prediction and read aloud features in Google Chrome

Today we are releasing an amazing AppWriter Cloud update. The new version number is 2.4.0

Starting from today AppWriter Cloud provides word prediction and read aloud features everywhere in the Chrome browser. Until now the word prediction was restricted to Google Docs only. But now you will find AppWriter's assistive tools in all standard text input fields in the Chrome browser.

Standard text input fields are found in Gmail, Google+ and many other sites. We are working on adding AppWriter features to all other text input fields.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact us on:

The entire AppWriter code had to be rewritten in order to add word prediction and read aloud to all text input fields in Chrome. We have been testing it thoroughly, but if you discover any errors or unexpected behaviours, please send us an email:
