    the screen while you type.  It's not a function of DK---it's usually part of your browser.  I use Safari---don't know about the other ones like Firefox or Internet Explorer.  It's a quick flash of a word in blue type and sometimes it just flashes and disappears and at others shows up as a word in your comment and stays there.

    At other times I simply notice while doing a proofread that a word I know I didn't type has been inserted.  Drives me nuts sometimes.  You'll always see autocorrect if you're watching the screen when (at least on my computer) blue type (rather than the typical black) shows up.  When you see that, it's autocorrecting but sometimes it's wrong so you still have to proofread closely.

    Hope this helps.

      which is what I use.  For proof, see my frequent typos lol.

        But even with autocorrect, I still catch errors in my own typing----and I taught typing several eons ago for 7 years!  Sorry about IE not having that function, though.

        I've been typing and proofreading since my military stint in the 80's.  I wish I could turn autocorrect off.  In stream of conscience writing particularly is prefer to be able to go back and see what I actually typed instead of what it thought I meant to write.  On this phone I'm constrained to it's even harder to go back and change a whole word than to go back and change one letter.
