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
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?
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.
I bought iPad2 in the UK, about a week ago and would like to activate the French dictionary/spell checker.† I have tried changing the language to French and the keybourd to French but this doesn't seem to work.†
I generally find the iPad's auto-correct feature counter-productive - it usually picks am unwanted word, which then needs to be retyped - but obviously being able to spell check emails is very useful.However the two features seem to go hand in hand; is it possible to switch off the auto-correct feature, without losing the ability to do spell checking?
One feature I simply love in OS X is the global spellcheck and dictionary. I know the global spellcheck exists on the iPad, but what about the dictionary popup? On a Mac, it's a simple Ctrl+Cmd+D and I get the definition and a thesaurus tab, does this exist on the iPad too?
Greek spell checking, in iPad (IOS 7.1.1), works only if auto-correct mode has been enabled in general settings [Settings / General / Keyboard / Auto-correction = On]. The problem is that in this case wile typing, spellchecker suggests wrong words that you have to refuse manually by touching the x sign in the suggestion cloud. This makes fast typing impossible and the risk of having the wrong word in your text very high and¬† some times quite embracing.¬† Now to solve this problem,¬† if you switch Auto-correct mode to Off and keep Check Spelling mode to On, it works with English but not with Greek although the system has the Greek dictionary.
