Any tech nerds know why this is? Its horrible. Like virus horrible.
Because you are spelling the words wrong to begin with and not correcting so it learns your misspelled words.
It's adding words as well
Yup! AI man.
There is the real threat!
Their spell check has always sucked IMO!
When I don't know how to spell a word I go straight to SIRI! That virtual lady can spell anything! Quick, accurate and instead of changing my screen I can use my iPhone for the info.
I will assume that you are the only one using your AppleID. If you are using multiple devices on one ID then somebody else sucks at spelling and it's syncing your 'cuztum werdz lists".
I can't spell for sheeeet
But.... This spell check deal has gotten way worse since last update
Ask Siri to spell that long word from marry poppins. Siri does have a seance of humor.
I have had spell-check and the auto suggestion turned off for about 3 updates now, and I still swear at it daily. No way am I talking to SIRI and repeating the same bubblegum thing 5 times... They aren't getting my money next upgrade.
She just spelled it, like any other words!
I dunno, she just took supercalifragilisticexpialidocius the first try and spit it right out.
I guess I didn't ask her to spell it instead I said the word and it's what she said.
I tried it with Siri and her response, no kidding: "that sounds like something quite atrocious". I agree, she does have a good sense of humor.
Ever though about it being the user not the device?
"Error between keyboard and chair" is not the same as a computer error.
Edit: I am in no way a Mac Cult Fanboi, I just use technology and adapt myself to the technology to minimize frustrations.
I use the voice dictation quite often to compile emails or text messages as I'm often behind the wheel driving.
I rattled off a job status update to my boss and a few moments later he replied back, "that's great, but who is Eric and why is he giving you a handjob?"....
LMAO.... Dunno how or why, but low and behold.... that's what the good 'ol iPhone printed up for me even though it wasn't EVEN remotely close to what I said.
Moral of the story... proof read your voice dictation messages BEFORE you send them. I've caught the "N" word (seriously?!), and "blowjob" in the body of text before sending them off... damned iPhone!
Crap, now you sound like my wife!
Yeah, it's possibly the user.
you have to enunciate correctly, then siri will print what you mean
So when I refer to the "BELOW JOB" number in a forwarded email to our (attractive) receptionist for a PO number I should REALLY, REALLY enunciate those words... because it may print out in another awkward statement?
and get you in trouble or maybe lucky
Separate names with a comma.
