How To Turn ON And OFF Autocorrect On Galaxy A7

Posted by David Covington on February 2, 2019

The autocorrect on the Samsung Galaxy A7 is a great feature to know how to use. Autocorrect was created with the idea of helping you to fix typos or other spelling errors that you make when typing on your smartphone. After all, typos are not hard to make when the keys are half the size of your pinkie fingertip. But Autocorrect can sometimes be an issue, such as when it autocorrects something that is not actually spelled wrong.

For those who don’t want to use autocorrect or who have gotten fed up with autocorrect, there is a way to disable autocorrect on the Samsung Galaxy A7 smartphone. If you have a preference, you can either disable autocorrect forever or just when typing words that autocorrect may not recognize. The following is a guide on how to turn autocorrect on or off on your Samsung Galaxy A7.

How to turn on and off autocorrect on Samsung Galaxy A7:

  1. Turn on the Galaxy A7.
  2. Go to a screen that shows the keyboard, such as a messenger or an email app.
  3. Near the left Space Bar, select and hold the Dictation Key.
  4. Then select the Settings option, which is the one that looks like a gear.
  5. Below the section that says Smart Typing, select Predictive Text and disable it.
  6. Another option is to disable different settings like auto-capitalization and punctuation marks, if you would rather not turn autocorrect off entirely.

Later on, if you decide you want to turn autocorrect on your Galaxy A7 back on, all you need to do is go back to the keyboard, go back to settings, and change the autocorrect feature to On again to make things go back to normal. It’s important to note that for those who have an alternative keyboard installed through the Google Play Store, the method to turn autocorrect on or off on the Samsung Galaxy A7 may be a little different based on how the keyboard is laid out.
