Hooray for no new lesions! And brains are very weird.

I'd vote for "you haven't been using the word 'because' and therefore have no data on how you spelled/misspelled it before" - but it's possible that's only because that's the most optimistic of the outcomes presented? (if our brains or computers are saving up for revenge - depending on what you meant by autocorrect - I'm in trouble...)


KC - I wonder if autocorrect keeps track. I would like to see a report of words I cannot spell.


In Windows, you can have your autocorrect keep track now, in theory (to "see what our AI has helped you with!" and I say NO THANKS just because the fewer records that are kept on me, the better). I don't know about other things.


KC - I wonder where that list is? I tried to find it in Word but I could not.


Search in Windows Settings for "Typing Insights" - but hmph, I just looked at it, and instead of, as labeled, showing you *how* Windows has "helped you" it instead just tallies the number of items in each autocorrect-y category. (at least, it tallies things on my computer and all the tallies are 0; it's possible that more advanced information is available if you actually have things it has fixed for you)

I don't know of any autocorrect tracking features in Word, though, so if Word is doing it rather than Windows, you're probably *also* out of luck. Sorry!
