My mom and others have told me my spelling would get worse or that I’d become sloppier with typing because of this feature. I’ve recently noticed that’ it’s had a completely opposite effect.
Ever since I’ve started writing and spell checking something everyday, my ability to spell has skyrocketed. I run a spell check on every post and it usually only stops on people’s username (no mistakes). When I do have a mistake, it’s usually with a word that I rarely or have never typed before (I then make note of it and try to memorize the correct spelling).
Anyhoo, has/did anyone notice this trend anytime after being to use spell check, or did spelling accuracy actually decrease?
I’ve been using spell check a long time and in the past it did keep me a sloppy speller and typer, but know that I write so much (postting, chatting and whatnot) I’m much more aware of proper spelling.
