It always messes up my writing…..
Auto correct and I often have words about who is correct. As I have the power to unplug, I win. Sometimes it takes a while but I always win.
My red squiggles just suggest, and has pointed out some dandy errors due to fat fingers. The green squiggle usually notes an incorrect usage of a word that I would not have caught.
Ought to correct.
Does anybody remember “White Out”?
I have found the feature to be quite annoying at times.
I like Cosmo’s positive about an often frustrating feature. I’ve always wished it would highlight possible problems without arrogantly making changes.
OH, EXCELLENT!!!! Now I have ready-made excuse for typos. . .
I’m guessing he’s not the only won to notice that.
Not to mention the occasional period or comma in strange places.
I always say that ‘autocorrect’ is ‘autocorrupt’, autocorrupted.
A priest, a minister and a rabbit walk into a bar. The bartender asks the rabbit, what are you doing here? The rabbit replies, I don’t know about the others, but I am here because of autocorrect.
Too often an embarrassing touch.
From one of my 591 .sigs (I use a database): “Autocorrect has become my worst enema.” And: “It helps if you imagine autocorrect as a tiny little elf in your phone who’s trying so hard to be helpful but is in fact quite inebriated.”
i was tweeting about my childhood the other day and autocorrect changed “Schwinn” to “Schwann” ????
I keep the “auto” part shut off. The red underlines are helpful though.
Otto Connect can be a beach.
I gave up on autocorrect once and for all when I was typing “practicalities” and it prompted me for “proctocolitis.” Thanks, but no…..
