Enabling hidden dictionary in Swype for Android devices

Enabling dictionary in Swype for Android devices
Not all users of Swype keyboard on Android phone know that there is heuristic dictionary available with Swype.  However you have to register with Living Languages to enable this function.

The Swype will get better, thanks to Nuance's new technique called crowdsourcing, which essentially means gathering new words from the people. 

First a little information about Swype for those who have still not used it.  It is a keyboard available for Android only through its website here.  In Swype a user can use a continuous motion technique to type the words and through practise it is much more easier then QWERTY keypad.  For eg. you want to type 'Vijay', you place your finger on V and in one swiping motion take it to i followed by j, a and y. 

However since 'Vijay' may not be in the inbuilt dictionary it may give you other results.  Precisely to add such personalised words Nuance has introduced the Living Language concept which will update the Swype servers with new popular and latest trending words such as Gangnam or Fiscal Cliff so you get the result of your swipe with precise accuracy.

However to enable this service you have to register with Living Languages.  To do this open Swype keypad, go to settings and tap language options.  In the next menu tap Living Languages to activate crowdsourcing.  This will activate the Living Languages feature and help you with your input.

Another feature on Swype is called Smart Editor which analyses the sentence entered by you and points out errors and gives obvious corrections.  For eg. if you type I wll call you back it will underline wll and give you suggestion of will.   Further the Swype also supports new languages like Catalan, Hebrew, Croatian, Czech, Ukrainian, Greek, Vietnamese, Malay, Thai, Romanian, Turkish, and Slovak through its inbuilt Dragon Dictation feature.

Swype has officially launched the keyboard for Android devices.  Please visit this link.
