How to Turn Off Autocorrect on Mac OS X

How to Turn Off Autocorrect on Mac OS X

Here's the means by which to kill autocorrect on your Mac to stay away from humiliation and disappointment. While autocorrect has been an aid – and periodic wellspring of shame and funniness – for iPhone clients, utilizing it on a macbook or work area can bring about steady dissatisfaction. 

There are two or three issues with utilizing a framework like autocorrect on a Mac. Most importantly, with a full physical console, you can regularly be composing so quick that when you've seen an approaching autocorrect occasion, you're now a sentence or two past it – sentences that feasible no longer bode well. 

The other issue with autocorrect on a MacBook or iMac is that you have various information strategies available to you, similar to a full equipment console and multitouch trackpad or mouse, that make it excessively easy to rapidly and effectively right grammatical errors or incorrect spellings. Those revisions are considerably more hard to make on a piece of glass, multitouch or something else. Luckily, it's quite easy to either relieve or by and large mood killer autocorrect inside OS X's settings board. 

Open up your Mac’s System Preferences and click on Keyboard.

You can either utilize spotlight by hitting Cmd+Space and composing settings, or snap on the symbol in your dock. Once there, find and snap on the 'Console' symbol – in this model, it's in the subsequent line, three segments in. 

Click ‘Text’ at the top of the next window.

Once you're in the Keyboard settings board, click on the Text tab at the highest point of the window. Here, you'll see a checkbox on the privilege close to the expression 'Right spelling naturally.' If you need to kill autocorrect, ensure this container is unchecked. In the event that you've recently turned it off and need to re-empower it, just re-check this alternative. 

Fix problem phrases by adding text replacements.

Perhaps you wouldn't fret autocorrect so much, however it has two or three truly disappointing adjustments that it continually makes, as with a name or email address. From this equivalent screen (System Preferences - > Keyboard - > Text) you can include content substitutions that should abrogate any conduct made via autocorrect. 

Essentially click on the + symbol at the base left of the Text window. You'll see a cursor begin blazing in the container directly above. In the left-hand window, enter the content you need to type – that is, the content you need to forestall being autocorrected. 

Suppose that OS X continues rectifying your username for work by supplanting "nelsonj" with only "nelson." In the 'Supplant' section above, you'd type nelsonj. Hit tab on your console, and you'll discover the cursor in the 'With' section. 

Here, you would usually type what you need to supplant the content with (like omw becomes On my way! or on the other hand brb becomes be directly back), yet in this example, you type something very similar – so "nelsonj" – and hit enter. 

Presently, regardless of whether autocorrect is turned on, any unequivocal exclusions you compose here will stay as you type, regardless of how deplorably incorrectly spelled the PC may think them.
