There is a checkable/uncheckable option called Block offensive words under Settings->Voice input & output->Voice recognizer settings. This of course only works with the integrated Google voice recognition, but I assume that's what you're talking about :)
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. The option is enabled in the location: Settings Language & Keyboard Touch Input Text Input QWERTY ...
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.
The stock keyboard in Jelly Bean (4.1 or 4.2) does not support multiple languages simultaneously. However, SwiftKey, a third party keyboard, supports advanced predictions with up to three languages simultaneously.

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.

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).
Looks like it has been reported as a SwiftKey bug for the Nexus 10 as well. Your best best is probably wait to get this fixed. I suggest you click the Vote button in their support site to increase the bug's priority. I just added 3 votes for you! NOTE: I don't use SwiftKey. I use GO Keyboard.
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 ...
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 ...
Swiftkey have an article on this although it's a little vague, it's seems more like they are describing how to use entirely different keyboards here: I want to use a different keyboard, how do I switch? Press and hold in any text field to bring up the pop-up text menu and choose Input Method. Here you can choose other keyboard types, including ...
If you are looking for a solution, I suggest downloading a third party keyboard. I'm 95% sure each keyboard has its own dictionary. I use Go Keyboard, which I prefer over the stock Android keyboard anyway, based on the larger letters and the period that doesn't hog most of the space where the keyboard should be.
I knew i had turned it on (autotype/autocorrect/wordpredict)since i first got my phone, but could not figure out how to turn it off, until now. ON my Samsung Galaxy S I use an ANDROID keyboard. There are keyboard options and typing options for the phone under settings in the app area...but none of those will change the features of the Keyboard itself. ...
