    Hello, I have a huge issue on this iPad respelling words. For some reason when it replaces a word it removes just 1 letter from the spelling and makes up a word that does not exist, for example my name... It corrects my last name from Clemmer to "Clemm r" ??? That is just a single example. What would cause that? And some words that I use all the time that it recognizes as spelling errors are not, how can I get the iPad to "learn" the words? Thanks a ton guys... Mjc...:thumbs:

    It will eventually remember the correct spelling however, it has been reported many times that if you add a word to the Contacts app then the iPad will not autocorrect it when you use it in future.

    I use the shortcuts in settings - general - keyboard - shortcuts. Any words you use frequently will be accepted. I have even put my email addresses in there. You just need two letters or more to remember to activate the shortcuts command. It's great. I know of people who have 200 activated.

    I this persist, try going to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Keyboard Dictionary. Otherwise, Try a reset. Close all apps then - Hold down the HOME, bottom button, and the SLEEP, top button, for about 10 seconds until the Apple icon appears, then release buttons. Allow it to reboot, it may take a few minutes, don't panic like I did, wait for it to reboot. Cures many weird problems on iOS devices.

    Just open your Contacts App and make a new contact......it should work just fine (not that I've ever done it though!).

    Maybe you could create a keyboard shortcut for whatever you're trying to spell regularly.
