Thing is, I told you about my issues AFTER you gave me the advice.

 

I give the same advice, whether people have health issues or not. It is in our visiting teachers' handbook, given to all new members of the department and is offered, as it was to you, as a tip to help save their time. Anyway, I see no point in continuing this discussion, since you clearly don't need my advice and appear to just want to provoke argument, so I will not be replying again.

Hildegard, there is a significant difference between mis-spellings on hand-written reports and typos due to typing on phones etc. I do actually know how to spell 'their' and 'piano' but for some reason when I am typing, they can mysteriously appear as 'thier' or 'paino'.  I am not surprised that Mumofmany found your helpful advice somewhat condescending, especially after her explanation.

A lot of errors occur because of the automatic corrections which are almost all based on American spelling. I'm with Banjogirl on that. I think we should resist!

You will notice, if you read back over one of your posts, there is a typo. It’s okay though, as it happens to the best of us! I certainly don’t want an argument, simply genuine support from genuine fellow human beings. Best wishes to you!

Thank you! My point exactly but put in a far more concise way, without the internal frustration :) I honestly didn’t come here for an argument. I’ve always received such wonderful support from fellow forum users and didn’t think twice about writing a rather hurried post before I left the house. Ah well..

I despise my American autocorrect! The thing, however, has a mind of its own and resists my attempts at change! Ha!

It's usually possible to change to English autocorrect - however it may be so buried in the settings "options" that you may decide that life is too short to hunt for it. laugh.png

I turned mine off altogether after accidentally getting myself into trouble by texting something very rude! Fortunately they believed me when I explained...
