Auto correct

Is there a way to turn off auto-correct for posts on BF. The forum posts is the only site that it operates on, both my desk top and my tablet. Unless I am very conscious of it and preview every post, it causes a lot of typo's when writing a post.

For full browser versions, it is pretty easy to add words to your dictionary.

I'm not quite sure how to fix Android, although it seems to learn some of my vocabulary.

You asked if there was a way to turn off auto correct. I state that I don't know of a forum autocorrect. Then you reply that it isn't autocorrect. Then I ask what it is. Then you reply that it is not autocorrect.

I have no idea what you are talking about.

I use an Android browser and the spell check/auto-correct gives you and option to use a word not in its dictionary, just click on the "+" sign and it's added to your personal lexicon.
