    Tis has probably been raised before, butI find that the way iPad predicts what I want to say (usually incorrectly) a total pain. Is there any way that anyone has found to turn off this annoying 'habit'? ThNks in advance for any help

    Under settings, pick keyboard. Turn off autocorrect. That should do it.

    Can you switch it off for selective websites as it only annoys me on share websites? When I enter a company symbol like CSN my iPad changes it to CAN.

    I thought, still do, that if you correct its correction then your word is included in the library and shouldn't be changed in the future. No??

    Can you do the opposite? It seems to learn my words, and if I deliberately misspell a word or if I use an obscure word that is not in its dictionary it learns what I want, but only after a time. Is there a way to tell it 'now learn this word now'?

    I, too, had the problem of auto-correct being just no right. But, only just enough to be annoying, not enough to turn off the feature. I found this trick somewhere on the web (this quote is from writer Sharon Zardetto over at Macworld - just to save me some typing):



    So, if you put CSN in that contact, auto-correct won't try to fix it. And, as it is in your contacts, you won't even get the red squiggle line...

    Worth a shot, maybe?
