You may have noticed that Microsoft has added predictive text. The basic idea is that as you type, Word tries to guess what you are going to write next and automatically adds the predicted text to your document. You can either accept the prediction by pressing the right cursor key or you can reject it by typing what you intended. If you continue typing, the predicted text simply goes away without you having to do anything.
Some people love Word's predictive text feature while some find the incorrect predictions to be distracting.
