Question: word prediction in High Sierra

I have been using KeyStokes by Assistiveware since I was a beta tester. I use just the word prediction feature, and not the onscreen keyboard. I have a keyboard fitted with a keyguard.

As High Sierra now has these features, Keystrokes users have been told that Keystrokes will not work in High Sierra, but as with Read&Write Gold, the predicted words will have to be clicked on, rather than selected with one of the keyboard's two sets of numbers.

Obviously, I am worried as if I never upgrade, I shall eventually hit software issues.

Has anybody used this new word prediction? I would be really interested to hear what it is like.

The best way to replace Keystrokes Prediction (so far) is to try using Assistiveware "Wrise" App. It has word / phrase prediction similar to what Keystrokes offered. You can try it for free and buy if you like it. I use it for writing and then copy and paste what I have written to other Apple Apps. It works with a physical keyboard.
