Benefit to Fedora

Impetus typing method:

Within few keystrokes user gets the desire word within the list. It saves user's typing and makes typing faster. e.g For typing word "wordnet", it requires six key strokes.With European typing it requires only three keystrokes.


No need to learn new method or technology.  User can add/delete new words into the user dictionary. New words will get added automatically.


Since the suggestions come from a validated word dictionary database, the selected words always give 100% accurate spelling. Note: correctly the present generated database is from unreviewed web data, in the long term with community help, they can be reviewed and the correctness checked as per standard. Also infrequent words which may be mis-spellings can be filtered easily from the dictionaries.
