There is a checkable/uncheckable option called Block offensive words under Settings → Voice input & output → Voice recognizer settings. For Samsung phones, the settings are named slightly differently: from the Settings app, try Language & input → Voice search settings → Block offensive words. This of course only works with the integrated Google ...

I what I will call a workaround for the present, as it is not a simple solution as allowing offensive words in voice typing, but it has the same final affect: Under Settings, choose Language & Input Choose Personal Dictionary Click the plus (+) button in the top right Enter the "offensive word" under the Phrase and Shortcut spaces Click the back button ...

It seems that asking this question has encouraged me actually make a proper effort to poke around the phone's settings enough to find a workable solution, which is to enable Spell correction for the QWERTY keyboard word suggestions / predictions.

I fixed it! The trick was to clear the cache and data for Google Keyboard. Settings => Apps => ALL* => Google Keyboard => {Clear Data, Clear Cache} * Be sure to go to ALL instead of RUNNING. The instance under RUNNING will not give you the correct data clearing options.

Best answer I've found so far: You could try clearing all data from the keyboard. Menu>Settings>Applications>Running Applications then tap All. Scroll down and find Internation Keyboard (if thats the one you are using) and Clear Data. Source: Sony Ericsson Support Forum Of course, it will also set the keyboard to the original settings. ...

This is positioned high in Google, so I'm gonna paste my solution here. I own a Sonyericsson Xperia Arc S and the Personal Dictionary list was empty. The way to go was to go into the app listing (all apps), find the Xperia Keyboard service and Clear Data. It resets every keyboard configuration, but it's how it works.

There is a fairly new app called Perfectly Clear which allows you to select multiple images and apply corrections to all of them at once in batch. You could also set a preset and apply the enhancements the same way for all images. Fair warning, for the more advanced features they have in-app purchases.

Actually this feature does exist, but it is disabled by default, so to enable it in a vanilla Android Jelly Bean 4.3 you must follow the steps below: Open your Phone app, tap the dialer tab (first one at the left).

I have a Nexus 4 from T-Mobile, the Google one, with Android 4.2.2. I've been noticing this same problem, and the fix I found was to go to Settings -> Language and Input -> Then press the settings icon next to the "Google Keyboard (English, U.S.)" option -> then deselect "Block offensive words." Before I figured this out, however, I spent quite a lot of time ...

if you really do that often, compile/install image magic and use a script. https://github.com/lilac/Android-ImageMagick you will dread the though of going back to the lame algo in those apps.

Stock keyboard (as well as most 3rd-party keyboard apps) has both auto-correct and auto-completion (a.k.a. "suggestions") built in. Access the keyboard settings via Settings -> Language & input -> Android keyboard. From there you can enable and fine-tune the auto correction and suggestion options.

This appears to be a bug in the 2.3.4 update. It is being tracked here.

It depends on what keyboard app you're using. If you're using Google Keyboard (the default on Nexus devices), go into its settings. Go to the Text correction section and click Auto-correction. Choose Off from the list. If you prefer, you could install a keyboard that supports using multiple languages at the same time, such as SwiftKey.

The problem is with Stock keyboard app/service. It can't be fixed by normal means. Simply, use third-party soft keyboard apps viz. SwiftKey, Go Keyboard EX, A.I. Type Keyboard, Hacker's Keyboard etc.

There's a keyboard better that that of Blackberry: SwiftKey X. Believe me, you'll love its Artificial Intelligence based suggestions. It learns from your typing habits to suggest you better. And, it can learn from Twitter, Facebook, Gmail and RSS Feed too (Quick Learning).

You have to turn off the keyboard trace. Unfortunately through a very poor design, you can't have trace without the autocomplete.

Some keyboards have a kind of "blacklist" for bad/insulting words. Check if you can find that option in Settings → Language & Input, where you should be able to disable it. I know for sure there's such an option for voice input ("Block insults" in Settings → Voice Input & Output → Voice recognizer Settings), but I'm not sure whether ...

This is how I solved this problem on my HTC One: Go to Settings-> Languages and Keyboard. On this list is a "Swype" setting that shows it's set to "Swype". Not informative. But press your finger on it anyway. Bam! The most useful menu that I never knew existed appears. You can add a language that will be in use simultaneously with your primary ...

Then under keyboard make sure you tick the setting an extra key should appear when using multiple languages. Then when you are typing, let's say in whatsapp or so, go to your menu and tick the box of the second ...

Ok, I found a workaround. I am calmer now. Use Spiffy Search from the Market. You can use it to search, then have it set to maps. It doesn't use your internet connection. Then, edit maps settings so that the navigation icon appears whenever you find a location. My deliveries just became a little easier! Btw, I use a Droid X on Page Plus, which uses ...
