Do you think people have become too reliant on their phone's spell checker?

How many people would struggle to spell words correctly if their phone suddenly stopped highlighting incorrect words, stopped changing them automatically, or stopped providing alternative spelling options?

  • My autocorrect is set on german. So I'm sure my English is full with speeling mistakes but I don't mind as long as the message comes across

  • I meen, my phone doesn't have a speel chequer and eye do fine.

    Before that ONE guy point out the errors, this is obviously a joke. Shouldn't even have to say this.

    • I know, I hate having to explain jokes on here but there are so many people who would instantly turn on attack mode.

    • Yeah, it's a shame how people can still miss blatantly obvious jokes.

  • Literally WHO gives a shit about knowing correct grammar.

    • No, fuuu that. Its important to have correct grammar, but who cares if its coming from yourself or an AI

    • I mean that's true. But my question was more related to when people no longer have the AI to help them. Will being used to the AI cause them to make more mistakes when they don't have it?

  • I mean, I'd probably send a lot of messages with spelling mistakes in them because i'd be too lazy to go back and fix them, but that doesn't mean I'd forget how to spell. I don't have spell check helping me when I do my homework and I generally don't make spelling mistakes there.

  • I have a slight problem on here because the spell checker is US English rather than our English but in general I find spellchecker good except it only tells you its wrong not the correct version - You still have (for a big word) to open a google tab, key into search engine for correct spelling but I am fairly reliant on it

  • I was a great speller even before spellchecker was a thing. Back in my day we didn't have autocorrect and spellchecker. We had to take extensive spelling tests! Now I realize all of it was totally useless as technology gets more integrated into our lives.

  • I'd be fine without it because I went to school as a kid xD

    It doesn't matter now anyway because everyone DOES have a spellchecker in their pocket. Technology doesn't tend to move backwards so we'll probably always have it.
