This discussion is being dictated into my iPad. I have no intention of correcting anything that is written. I am sick and tired of AutoCorrect and now I am sharing my frustration with the world. Why does my computer Think that it knows what I want to say better than I do?

I've had an iPhone for about five or six years now, and the damn autocorrect makes me so mad! I have learned that if you're patient enough, you can reteach it to leave your bad spelling alone! For instant, I finally got my phone to stop changing sh1t to shut by back spacing and retyping-it takes four or five times, but it will eventually work. I see that the ability to dictate directly into your iPad would explain the number of new discussions you've started recently-I can just imagine if I got a Mini! I always have my phone with me, so I can just imagine having a mini iPad attached to my hand-I have problems touch-typing on my phone, but to dictate? I'd be in heaven!

Can't you dictate into your iPhone? I suppose it depends upon which version of the operating system you are using. I looked at a mini in the store the other day and I can see the appeal. I got my iPad when I was I'll earlier this year and I confess to being addicted to it! I take it virtually everywhere and the boss says that three of us sleep in the bed! It's a good job that she is so broadminded. LOL. I shall see if I can teach it new tricks; thank you for the tip.

A quick search came up with this advice: To turn off this feature on the iPad, tap the Settings icon. On the Settings screen, select General and then Keyboard. Next to Auto-Correction, switch the on button to off. If you want to keep autocorrect on to catch typos — but would like an audio alert when it decides to change a word — go back to the General screen and tap Accessibility. Tap the on button next to Speak Auto-Text to receive an audible warning when autocorrect is modifying text.
