Have you ever watched TV with the closed captioning turned on? If you have then you might have wondered how in the world the person on the other end could type the words that fast. Sure there is a bit of a delay with live TV but they would still have to type extremely quickly and completely flawlessly.

One trick up their sleeve though is predictive text. Predictive text is when a computer shows you a list of possible outcomes for a word based on the characters that you have already entered. In this video I will show you how to use this feature built right in to Mac OS X. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to post them.
