Here’s some useless information.
The following are some words I consistently spell wrong when at the keyboard (although not in longhand).
thanks – thnaks
for – fro
from – form
just – jsut
would – wuold
said - siad
picture - pciture
And, yes, auto Spell Check helps me out when I’m working in Word. Bingo! Corrected as I type.
However, when not in Word, a squiggly red line appears below the misspelled words. Which stops me cold. (Interferes with my creative flow!)
Worse, no help is offered for the misspelled words “form” or “fro” because they are in fact correctly spelled. Just not for my purposes. I have to catch these suckers on my own.
I sincerely regret cheating in my Grade Nine Typing class. It has haunted me ever since.
