At some point, all of us can slip a spelling mistake while we write. Fortunately with electronic devices it is much easier to write well if we use the Castilian proofreader.

The corrector or autocorrect is a tool that all operating systems incorporate and that detect misspelled words. The usual thing is that the misspelled word is highlighted in some way so that the user can detect it quickly, although in the case of the autocorrect it can also happen that if it does not find the written word in its dictionary, it directly changes it to another.

Improve spelling

If in addition to having the help of the spell checker you want to practice spelling and grammar, you can do it from your mobile with the application Right word, which is available for both Android and iOS.

The application proposes five game modes with which we can improve our vocabulary and our knowledge of grammar and spelling.

In the grammar part, it is about choosing the correct option among the different options that are shown to us, the app also incorporates a trivia game about knowledge and general culture, a dictionary game in which you have to choose the correct word from definition, a set of synonyms, another of antonyms and a last game that combines grammar, synonyms and antonyms.

Another option that will help us improve the way we write is reading. That is why we recommend our articles on the best apps to read books and the list with all the books you should read in your life.

Reading and practicing spelling is the best way to make as few mistakes as possible. The way we write is something that we should pay special attention to.

How does the spell checker work?

Today’s technology devices work in a wide variety of languages ​​and we can even add more to them. This implies that we can write calmly in Spanish, Catalan, Chinese, US English, Arabic, etc, etc.

When we configure a certain language in our device, the dictionary is activated of that specific language, so that every time we write a word the spell checker will check the dictionary to see if it is well written.

If in addition to having the spell checker activated we have the option of spell check. If it is detected that a word may be misspelled, it is likely that a red line or that word is highlighted in some way that makes the user see that there may be an error.

This system is the same as it has been using Microsoft Word been around for a long time and is quite well received by the public.

However, what I don’t like so much is when the spell checker or self-correcting instead of pointing out that a word is misspelled directly changes it to what he considers appropriate. In this situation, if we do not notice the change, we may end up sending a message that has nothing to do with what we wanted to say.

“Teach” the spell checker

If you have a device with an iOS operating system, you can “teach” the spell checker not to correct certain words.

At this point you have probably already detected which are the words that the iOS Autocorrect insists on correcting you. Well, if you want you can get your device to recognize those words as spelled correctly.

To teach the autocorrect we have to open the browser Safari. Next we open a new window or tab and click on the search box. In her we write the word we want our proofreader to learn to identify, then click on search for.

That’s it, through a simple search we get our iOS device to finally recognize that word that was giving us problems as well written.
