Autocorrect …. Helpful but can drive one nuts!!

~~October 29, 2014~~

Text replacement, replace-as-you-type or Auto-Correct is an automatic data validation function commonly found in word processors such as Microsoft Word and text editing interfaces for Apple Inc. products including the iPod, iPhone and the iPad. Its principal purpose is as part of the spell checker to correct common spelling or typing errors, saving time for the user. It is also used to automatically format text or insert special characters by recognizing particular character usage, saving the user from having to use more tedious functions.

The replacement list for text replacement can also be modified by the user, allowing the user to use shortcuts. If, for example, the user is writing an essay on the industrial revolution, a replacement key can be set up to replace the ‘word’ “ir” with “industrial revolution”, saving the user time whenever she wants to type it. For users with the patience, this facility can even be used to create a complete keyboard shorthand system, along lines similar to those of Dutton Speedwords, but with short forms instantly replaced by full forms.

  1. And have you ever tried to correct autocorrect? It takes many tries when you are texting. I can tell when someone has depended on it and/or spell check without proofing because one can get very strange things. Nice post.
