Make Suggested Spelling Disappear

Post by Richard Serkes » Sat Sep 20, 2014 10:49 am

I like the new suggested spellings bar in iOS 8, especially in Mail. But my wife hates it. She's a card carrying Luddite and doesn't like anything new. She wants me to turn off this new feature on her iPad but I don't know if you can.

If there's a way to tell iOS 8 not to suggest spellings (and remove the suggested spellings bar) please leave the answer here. My wife thanks you.

Try Settings > General > Keyboard.

Note that you can fix a lot of problems with predictive typing here by adding shortcuts. They don't have to be actual shortcuts. For example, you can make the shortcut "bok choy" autofill as "bok choy." You don't even have to fill in the optional shortcut field. Then you don't ever have to fight about what word you want.

I notice that in the upgrade, my shortcuts didn't copy over.

I'm sure there's a way to do that on a Mac too, but haven't done it yet. Yosemite has more iOS-like predictive typing.

The other day I was writing some e-mail about some Thonet chairs we bought. The e-mail went out with the subject "Thong chairs." :oops:

People are having fun just accepting one of the suggestions for each word without typing anything.

Here's another autocorrect that just happened to me. Pretty cool, actually:

Settings--> General--> Keyboard--> Predictive is the key. Thanks!

I recognize those chairs. Those are the ones they use at restaurants so you'll hurry up and eat and then get out because they're so uncomfortable.
