Text prediction has multi-dimensional applications, ranging from easier database access to resolving of cognitive disabilities. The tools for such applications exist, but are not tolerant enough of error to cater the needs of masses. Moreover, these systems depend upon long duration initial queries which are used to build word lists that aid in query expansion. Such systems do increase their vocabulary of generic words used by users but cannot aid in formulation of words that are rarely used. In this paper, various factors affecting auto-complete, the aid provided by it to the dyslexic patients, its advantages and application have been discussed. In every domain where lexicography has to dealt with as an extension of information retrievals, auto-complete is a necessary tool for assisting people with query generation, so that any inherent cognitive disability or lack of proper vocabulary does not affect the retrieval of information
