autocorrect
« on: November 27, 2014, 11:32:43 AM »
hello

IE or MS Office have strong autocorrect of common spelling mistakes

they somehow identify which word you want to write, evne if yu wirte lkie tish

but I want it to work in every text I type anywhere

is there a good solution?

I am not looking for a program that will autoreplace common specific spelling mistakes from a library, because my spelling mistake may not be included in the library

I would like something, maybe with artificial intelligence or something, that will detect the correct thing I want to say

thanks

My only suggestion would be that MS Word, OpenOffice, and other word processors with auto-correct can be customized by you to add just about any corrections or word changes you wish, so it's a little more useful than just using the dictionary list that comes with the word processor.

There is one application I recall that does just what seems to be asked for in the OP, and I was testing it a few weeks ago, but for the life of me I can't recall it's name. Sorry.    :-[
(I uninstalled it as it was too good at what it did and seemed rather intrusive.)
I think it might have been an Autohotkey app from Lifehacker.

Also, try:

whitesmoke claims they can do it. But is has been many years since I last had the program installed - because now I wrait perfekt engliz - so I can't advice you.

I want to type correctly everywhere! in firefox, in chrome, in thunderbird, everywhere!

WhiteSmoke works everywhere you type: in MS-Word, Outlook, web browsers and other text editing programs!

Be aware that while WhiteSmoke may help you to write, I don't think it can help you to read.

Be also aware that I am not endorsing WhiteSmoke wholehearted; their product is fine, but only rarely updated, and their pushy business moral seems to be in a grey area...
Also, the program is expensive.

I said I am not looking for that type of software, I need something more sophisticated

are you looking towards the future, or are you hoping something actually exists?
If you hope it actually exists it would be helpful to elaborate on what exactly you want -
this was a little vague:
