Auto Correct-ness...
« on: February 06, 2012, 03:47:15 PM »
Hehe... Auto Correct... it's a blessing and a curse:

I get that on my iPhone quite a bit because I use a custom-keyboard that includes a number row at the top... and it tries to translate the numbers I type into words.

Yeah, I've read some funny ones.  Some of the txts I get from the wife is not fully correct sometimes.  I always tell her to use the voice to txt feature.  Works pretty well, except no punctuation or capitalizations.

(tip: for many of the common uses, you can "speak" the punctuation mark that you want, and it will appear).

The embarrassing voice-to-text error that my android has had to un-learn is that "escrow" does not translate to "a$$ bro."  :-)
