If you are among the one who feels bad after sending a message filled with grammatical mistakes to someone, then this blog is perfect for you. To be safe, activate autocorrect to avoid yourself from writing wrong words in mails and SMS. Sometimes autocorrect can also become like your bad dream, which can make your meaningful content into meaningless content.
Here is how you can use Android’s Autocorrect
1. Put Words And Short Forms To Your Private Dictionary
In some places, like Gmail, you can put new words straight to the application. This method is related to the gadget and its OS. For instance, you wrote a word that’s not present in the dictionary and is overwritten a bit. In such cases, pressing the delete will change it to the actual word that you wrote. Otherwise, it can be even possible to write the word once again. In any of the situation,s the word in doubt will get underlined. You can hit on that word once or twice and select ‘add to dictionary’ or ‘replace’ to save the words that you need to put.
2. Utilising 3rd Party Keyboard
Whenever using a third-party keyboard, putting new words will have a separate method. If you use Swiftkey, generally the application will get to know from your way of writing and prevent changing the words that you often use. If it doesn’t work, you can even use the ‘prediction box’, which is seen on top of the keyboard to put it into the dictionary.
3. Activating Autocorrect
Using Autocorrect is an option. In simple words, you can use it if you want and you can also not use it if you want. Generally, third-party applications provide the option to deactivate it as like the stock Android keyboards.
Navigate to Settings>Language and input>Google Keyboard, and hit on Text correction. Here, you can switch auto-correction to enable or disable it. And manage other settings like advising contact names and presenting the upcoming word advice etc. You can also allow personalised advice, which utilises Google applications and your written content to provide you with the spelling advice. In the Language and input part, you can also switch on and off the spell checker and modify the language. Hope, you don’t need to face any embarrassments any more.
Congratulations, you got to know the correct method of using auto-correct.
