I'll carry on this question...
I can't find info anywhere on how to add words to the dictionary.
All I'd like to do is add my name 'Darian' since auto correct keeps changing it to 'drain'.
I'm not able to jailbreak this iPad as it belongs to my work.
Any ideas on how to do this?
Thanks a bunch
I have the same issue and find it's a pain. However I am still using the original Ipad OS so I could JailBreak it and that would solve it.

I came across this "hack" for you. Hope it helps.
Thanks Hal for taking the time to look! Alas, it did not work for me, must only be for iPhone's?
It's more of an annoyance then a problem, I'm just surprised it's not an easy fix.
Doesn't work for iPhone either. Must have been fixed with 4.2
Settings, Keybosrd, Autocorrect = Off.
Heaviside; I could just turn it off, but as a couple of us said, I rather like the auto correct. I just thought there'd be simple way to add words (like one's name) to its' dictionary.
I'll keep it on, and just hope one day there will be a way for it recognize odd names, words etc.
I have experienced a similar problem when I would type "in", my iPad would autocorrect to "I'n". I don't know how it learned that, but I was able to make it un-learn the wrong word by going into an app where autocorrect functions (just about everywhere), and i typed "in in in in in in in in in in in in" several times, while hitting the little autocorrect "x" that popped up when it was trying to correct me to "I'n". That fixed it.
Just like it can automatically learn new words like my daughter's name, Maggie, it can un-learn any autocorrect word if you hit the little x 10-times or so.
iOS is so SMRT
