Anybody else find this really annoying on both the tablet and mobile phone.

I sent the wife a text today to say that when we go the iron gorge museum we will have fish and chips.

The predictive text changed it to foam and chops, she didn't have a bloody clue what it meant. Can you turn the bugger off or disable it?

It’s book man. 😉





btw, back before predictive text when you had to press the number a certain number of times to get to the letter you wanted because there was no qwerty keyboards on the phones, if you wanted to type “cool” quickly it would come out as “book”


Just thought I’d throw this in 😎


Actually although it can be a pain, predictive can make a lot of the drivel written on t’net quite entertain8ng to read (like when I type too fast and the letter turns into a number)


Years ago I used to read a great number of books given to me by a proofreader so I could have a look at the quality of the initial written words. All of the common errors were there, their, they’re etc.etc.

I see them on various fora I frequent and often the lack of grammar makes my teeth itch and it’s hard for me not to say anything. Life’s too short to worry about it, unless the lack of punctuation and suchlike manages to make offence. It is tricky to pick out what message is being put across on occasion and it’s never quite as would be spoken face to face.

Anyway, foam and chops sounds interesting, perhaps she should try it sometime? 😂

On my devices I get three options as I type so I look there before moving to the next word, a lot of the time it suggests the right word before I touch a key so I don't mind it.

You can of course also look at what you have written before posting, even then I miss the odd worm.

I dictate. Rather than type. Off to (often) get some very strange suggestions. Depends on how good the signal is for the Internet. Occasionally I have had some quite read (rude) substitutions. So I hope I proof read well enough.
