I wasn't suggesting you do that. It's one of the first things I turn off when I get a new phone. Just explaining why some people have so much trouble with auto-correct.

Andy if you open the keyboard and hold the emoji icon a window will pop up and you can toggle the Predictive option on. Then a top row of predidictive suggestions and corrections will appear to choose from.

Here's another one that makes no sense:

The only use I use it to use it for my iPhone and iPad is also very very small but.

Yup. But I find it helpful when my arthritis is acting up. I find it painful to type sometimes and the predictive helps.

Does anyone have the beta transcriptions for voicemail messages? Some of those are hysterical!! One told me the person leaving the message was eating attorneys. lol I have no clue what it should have said because the person had an accent and it was a wrong number.

When I think it over, it is not that the auto-correct would substitute a word, it was the interruption to my train of thought for the message I was tapping.

By the time I looked at it, chose the correct word (middle one or not), found the correct button to change it, then start typing/tapping again, I could have finished the message and been well on my way thru the 2nd one.

If auto-correct came up for 3 or 4 words in the same message it was too bloody annoying!



That's the main reason I turn it off.
