Odd corrections?

BookertooBookertoo Posts: 1,306

Is it just me, my computer (commuter is what it gave me) or has anyone else noticed the very odd corrections you get when typing something for this site?  I for example, wrote the word 'space', and it came out 'spas'. (Took me twice to persuade it I did want to say 'space')    Now I'll not say I never type incorrectly, of course I do - but some of these are just plain weird - and it doesn't happen in emails and so on? 

Let me know if I'm just getting weirder, quite possible, or whether the auto correct is having an off time?

    That would drive me mad. Can't you turn it off and just type?

    Turn off the predictive spelling, no probs.

    I have no predictive text in use , nor auto correct, (tho' I did mention t, but it is off)  and so far, it is only this site that does it!!

    It's a setting on your computer but it's difficult to tell you where to turn it off without any clues as to what device you are using with which browser.

    Odd, it's never done that to me

    Nor me.  It happily lets me mis-type words and I don't always notice in time to Edit them afterwards.

    I had all sorts of major problems with this site, I loaded Chrome and have no problems at all now. I could never get PM's, fime with Chrome though.

  • Could be that you accidentally changed the keyboard settings. Try to google how you can get there. I believe this is dependent on the operating system.

    It depends on OS version, browser make and version and even whether you happen to have a word processor installed in some cases.  Because of that I'll only give a fix for Windows 8: Settings, PC settings, PC and Devices, Typing.  Turn off 'Autocorrect mispelt words'
