Automatic spell check and text prediction

13 Jan 2021

When typing in text on a physical or virtual keyboard, automatic spell check and text prediction can be enabled to improve the quality and speed of full word data entry.

Windows

In the Microsoft Windows 10 operating system (such as on our Mesa 3 Windows model), this can be enabled under Start > Settings > Devices > Typing in the Spelling and Typing sections as shown below.

Android

In the Android operating system (such as on our Mesa 3 Android model), these are features offered by specific proprietary apps and services. An example is under OS Settings > System > Languages & input > Virtual keyboard > GBoard such as the options in the "Text correction" menu shown below. If you have a physical keyboard attached, scroll down past this image for more information.

To have GBoard or another virtual keyboard with such features be visible while having a physical keyboard attached, go to OS Settings > System > Languages & input > Physical keyboard, and turn on "Show virtual keyboard" as shown below.
