Enable text suggestions for inclusive classrooms

Empower students to articulate their thoughts by enabling text suggestions on their device. As students type, suggestions appear above their cursor to help them complete challenging words and continue working. Words are predicted based upon the letters typed; as they type more letters, new and more accurate suggestions will appear. 

To enable text suggestions:

  1. Open your Start menu and select Settings.
