I do not have spell checking on my iPad; but, I have seen it in other people's iPads. See <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MsN3gpARkoU>So I am wondering how do I turn it on?Do I need to have Pages installed for it to work? Can I switch languages
Possible To Change Spell Checking Vocabulary On It?
Jan 27, 2012
In Pages on my iMac I can teach the vocabulary to accept unusual words as correct, and not needing to be corrected. For example I can tell Pages to accept " cogitans", a Latin word, as acceptable. How do I change or add to the spell checking vocabulary on the iPad?
Spell Checking And Video Player Not Working Properly ?
Apr 19, 2010
I'm really enjoying my ipad but there are a couple of things that aren't working as expected.The first thing is auto correction.I was expecting a similar experience to the iphone with common spelling mistakes to be auto corrected. And other neat features like the letter I to be automatically capitalized. Instead it doesn't show any suggestions at all. It seems like there's not dictionary in it. So if I mistype a word the next time I'll mistype it or type something close to that it'll bring up the misspelled word as the suggestion. Is there some kind of dictionary I need to enable?
Is there a way on iPad to add words to spell check. I routinely type product names that don't fall into the common US dictionary. Of course because these words are close to other words it does correct them to what it thinks is correct. if there is a way to add words so these can be caught.
Is this stupidity limited to 4.2.1, or was it always present. I want to enable spell check but to disable autocorrect. The system does not allow this, as when I enavle spell check, then disable autocorrect, spell ckeck then gets set to off! This is retarted and absurd. Spell check by itself should simple put a red underline on a word that spellcheck does not like. When the user taps on the word, suggestions should be available. I can't stand when programs or devices think that they are smarter than I am.
Using ipad 2 by itself, spell check works. using with zagg blue tooth keyboard, no spell check. apple tech support said "no known issues," however it is likely that this is a known issue. zagg developers say that ios turns off auto correct and spell check in the bluetooth interface.
