Although helpful, auto-correct and predictive text can be trouble at times. Imagine typing a professional mail and the words changing to something else. This needs you to correct those words and sometimes also re read your mails to verify them. These options are generally already active when you buy any android device. But there is always an option to turn them off. Today here we see how to go about turning off predictive text and auto correct.
*NOTE – The images used in this tutorial are of ASUS Zenfone 2 device and may very well match with other devices of the same brand. Also I have tried to generalize the procedure for other devices. Hope it helps.
1. Go to Settings option inside the Menu on your device.
2. Find the Language and input option (or Keyboard option) inside the menu.
3. You will find the current active keyboard as ZenUI Keyboard if you have not changed it earlier. Then select the keyboard name to proceed to the next menu.
4. Inside the menu that opens up click on the Intelligent input (only for ASUS users, not present in other devices) option. For other devices find the Setting button for your particular keyboard that is currently active.
5. Inside this option you will find the options for Auto-correct shown in the image below. Click on it and select the Off option in the popup that appears. For other devices, there are similar options available for switching auto-correct on and off.
6. For switching off the Predictive Text toggle the button next to Next-word Prediction option. For other devices similar options will be available.
