Drar Apple, I'd like to talk to you about the misspelling program On My iPhone

Drar Apple, and Mr. Jobs,

I like nu iPhone, I really do, but there is à problem. I spell fairly
well, but the spell checker jeeps changing what I write into
gibberish. IT is à chore giving all the mistakes I have to correctly.

There seems to be no way to turné the misspelling program off. Since
the iPhone is à network device, maybe the off switch is at your end.
If IT is, could you please TURN THE DAMNED THING OFF, BECAUSE I AM
GOING CRAZY!

Sorry for the outburst.

Kind Regards,

Henrik Mårtensson

Select:

Settings->General->Keyboard

and turn off "Auto-Correction".

However, it sounds like you perhaps have the wrong keyboard language setting and that it might be trying to spell words in a different language than you are typing in? Is that a possibility?

Thanks!

I am using a Swedish keyboard, because I live in Sweden and need the å, ä, and ö characters to write names. The language is set to English though, because I almost always write in English. The iPhone ought to handle that. Otherwise there would be no point to having separate keyboard and language settings.

Henrik,

I agree that it should cope, but in the meantime, you can enter accents on the English keyboard by just holding the letter you want an accent on and a selection of accents appear to choose from. Perhaps that's too long-winded for lots of typing?

If you select multiple keyboard layouts to be active the spelling correction actually follows the layout. And it is easy to change because you get a small globe next to your space key.
