Thank you But for that link but my objection is precisely that autocorrection is done by guesswork and that it's often if not usually wrong
Sorry But if I wasn't clear. I was objecting specifically to that feature of Google's latest rev which apparently resides not in Apple but in Google's software; though in the course of discussion remarked about its disadvantage
, especially where the correction isn't even flagged; but, But, doubly incensed by Mac's frustrating new habit: that when he thinks you've perpetrated a spelling error, with no warning of any sort he altogether quits recording your subsequent keystrokes
There's no possible excuse whatever for the latter feature
Edited to remark re
It isn't an abstract concept, it is a toggle that turns on or turns off the automatic correction feature.
Aha, apparent what you're saying is that I can in effect alter the software of another site, eg such as Google, so that it no longer autocorrects by sheer guesswork but reverts to the former, default, system where several possible spelling corrections are suggested
With your impaired cognitive abilities, you probably will need to ask one of your sons to help you with it.
Without a doubt
Nothing to be ashamed of, my mother faces the same challenges and often needs help with these sorts of tasks.
Alas alack my sons are so fed up with my incompetence that I'm reluctant to solicit further help. Nonetheless after such a help session I fear the problem will prove one of Mac's incompetent software that no amount of juggling my PC can fix
As for the link, But, thank you most kindly and I will address it some day when I have several days or perhaps weeks to spend at the PC, much to the chagrin of my Better Half; but meantime ikt might as well be written in Janpanese. For instance,
Launch System Preferences, either by clicking the System Preferences icon in the Dock
If by Dock they mean that strip of selections and icons across the very top, there simply isn't one so entitled. Under "Safari
," however, there's one entirled "Preferences," and I wonder if tht might be the one to which tbey have reference
Next they advise me,
2. Click the Language & Text preference pane.
Under Preferences there are indeed ten panes, but none of them
is so labeled
..noting how Mac has his minions purposely make everything as difficult as possible. I understand he awards rsizes to his programmers fore the most keystrokes to obtain a routine that should have come up for instance by default
So if I spend several months learning and applying ikt, will Mac then come to realize for instance that "ikt" is a misspelling of "it"
Mac, can't you see the "k" next to the "i"
or don't your programmers use a standard keyboard
Seems to me such rea;lly obvious stuff like that should be the default.
Really, Mac, rea;lly, you need to hire a
Oops you just cut off the rest of my entire para; you're listening and you're angry aren't you
…hire a few programmers with an IQ of at least 50. I realize they'll cost you a bit more, but, But, but…..
