Don’t you always hate it when you type something fast, and it ends up misspelled or with some random letters, numbers, or symbols in the middle of it? Well, pretty much everyone dislikes typos. However, autocorrect fixes that by inputting the right, sensible words. It would be a miracle, right?
Wrong. At least, sometimes. See, not all the time does autocorrect give you the right words. A few times, I’ve experienced that it gives me the one word I’m not looking for. Other times, I’m using an app called Swype on my phone. How this works is you swipe your finger across the keyboard so that it passes each letter in the word. It gives you the wrong word. Then, you have to delete it and start all over again until you get it right.
A lot of the time, you might have to type something that’s not in the dictionary, like a name or a made-up word. Well, autocorrect changes that to something completely and utterly different! For example, I was trying to type in ‘Rashia’, a character from one of my stories, into my other blog, https://imaginationalpha.wordpress.com/ . Well, the autocorrect suggestion was, in my opinion, slightly offensive. The computer mistook ‘Rashia’ for ‘Trashiness’!
I’m telling you this because I want to warn you about autocorrect. It is useful half of the time, but the other half is filled with misunderstandings. You can still use it. Just be careful of what you’re typing, is all I’m saying. 😀
