Have you ever tried to spell something online five or more times and spell check still can’t figure out what you’re trying to spell?

If autocucumber doesn't catch it, I Google it. Sometimes typing it out, the right spelling comes up. But if not, I'm like, someone else will correct it I don't care. I cannot get prolyethisize for the life of me. (I think that's still wrong)

I heard when Tom types a word spellcheck doesn’t recognize, it doesn’t add a red line under it, it just adds it to the dictionary

Ha! I wish!
I never use Apple Autocorrect, but I do use Autocomplete. Several times each week, I have to ignore a misspelled suggested word and type it out myself.

Definitely is always changed to defiantly. I usually just put deff because I can’t spell definitely.

Never that many. By the second fail, or if the first wasn’t even close, I just look it up or ask Alexa.

What's worse is when you use a word you know is the correct word, and it keeps replacing it with something else.

I turn that off so that it just gives suggestions, instead of auto replacing the word.

My new phone seems to have a thing against expletives, it's frustrating.

Spell check really enhances scientific writing. The whole page is covered in red underlines.

No, I generally suffer from not finding it when I know it's there. It's especially frustrating when I've seen it before and I can't find it.

Personally, I'm not quite sure what advanced search is supposed to do but it is not working correctly.

I’m ashamed to say I have

After five times the error message should read “go google it retard, I have no idea what you’re going for”

I’ve also had spellcheck fail to identify real words on a few occasions. If I’m on my phone and I can’t spell it by typing, sometimes I will dictate the word. :)
