In this paper, a system, Search Websites’ Images using Search Suggestions (SWISS), was improved based on the results of an experiment in which university students discussed their research theme using SWISS. SWISS displayed images based on the extracted words from the students’ utterances and another word predicted from a letter of the alphabet or Hiragana via an autocomplete function. The experiment showed that some entertaining ideas were generated from the students who used SWISS in their brainstorming. On the other hand, SWISS did not operate when no one was speaking, even when the students wanted to see some images to expand their ideas. Therefore, SWISS was improved so that the associated images are displayed even without word inputs to SWISS.
