How come there are no keyboards with a built-in Auto-correct software?

That's like having automatic transmission

>oh wait you americans do that shit too
>>
Because that would require a data bank of the entire english language, and probably many other languages, which computers already have
>>
because you could just type correctly and not be a retard

3 mistakes in once sentence. Shiggy.

what if you're not typing words?

>data bank of the entire english language
That's just a few kilobytes.
>>
>>63734899
not him but that comma you added was pointless
>>
>>63734899
Two mistakes. The comma before "and" is optional and/or circumstantial.
>>
>>63734861
what a retarded comparison
automatic is ALWAYS better when you live in a city and preferable in 99% of cases
>hurr amerimutt
i live in europe and owned 5 cars with manual transmission. I grew up with them. But recently i bought one with auto transmission and i'm never going back.

then i dont see how you can interface with a keyboard trying to correct what you are typing, must go with software correction
>>
>>63734934
>>63734946

There are two subjects in that sentence - typing and being a retard. You have to separate distinct ideas. The coma is, at best, semi-optional.
>>
>>63734850
Why not just use spellcheck?
>>
>>63734995
It on;y highlight an error, but does not automatically correct it.

An auto-correct would have corrected "on;y" on the fly.
>>
>>63735151
so a keyboard that's worthless for any task outside from messaging people and typing out essays?
>>
>>63735209
>messaging people and typing out essays
What 99.8% of people use their keyboards for.

Plain text auto-correct is its primary function. An ON/OFF toggle could be a good addition.
>>
>>63735238
a non-customizable autocorrection mechanism will introduce more wrong words than it'd fix
and one with deep customization doesn't appeal to those 99.8% of people because it'd be complicated
on top of that, why not just learn to type properly? Even if your finger slips an occasional typo isn't worth reinventing the will, especially when it's a non-issue for most people

You're a funny man, I'll give you that

>>63735298
Think of your phone. The auto-correct menu is simple as fuck on it. Just a few options + a personal dictionary. It could be the same for a computer keyboard, and most people would be very familiar with it, since they use something very similar on their phones every day.
>>
>>63734850
>keyboards
>hardware
>with built in software
hmm something isnt right here
>>
>>63735342
but phone keyboards are inacurrate due to no feedback and tiny screens, completely unlike desktop keyboards with tactile feedback and large size for precise typing
>>
>>63734850
>how come
Where'd you learn English?
>>
>>63735401
If keyboards are so precise, then why can't you capitalize for shit?
>>
>>63734850
Oh look, more useless features to disable.
>>
>>63734850
Because auto-correct is handled by the OS. Many of them have a setting for it now too.
>>
>>63735457
because it's my choice not to do so
because that's how i've been writing on imageboards for the past 10 years
because there's no name or details or accounts so i can't give a damn about what i say here being good enough to present in a scientific paper
>>
>>63735492
But now Google knows that you are, perchance, lazy and, possibly, semi-literate.
>>
>>63735515
wow, the thought of that won't let me sleep for weeks, how horrifying
>>
>>63735394
>he thinks keyboards are just pure hardware not running any software
You've been wrong since like 40 years.
>>
>>63735492
>because that's how i've been writing on imageboards for the past 10 years
What an excellent opportunity to correct this error, then!
>>
>>63735694
no

>>63734954
Cuck.
