How to Disable Spelling Auto Correct Tool on Kindle Fire

by: Christine TorralbaDecember 29, 2011

With the Amazon Kindle Fire priced at only $199, it is no longer a surprise why many people find this as the better option compared to the overhyped Apple iPad. As such, there are already a million Kindle Fire users who have been pleased with their new purchase. If you are a proud owner of one, here’s a tutorial you might find useful.

Although there are many people who find spelling auto-correction as a useful tool, it is not always the case. There are some who are actually struggling getting their tablet to type the right spelling that they have typed. This is pretty common to people who are not typing in English all the time. If you find spelling auto-correction as an annoying tool, here is a how-to guide on how you can disable it on your Kindle Fire.

1. Go to your home screen

2. Tap on the Settings icon

3. Select ‘More’ from options menu

4. Select Kindle Keyboard from the various options presented

5. Now go to Quick Fixes and set it OFF


That’s it. You don’t have to worry about your Kindle Fire automatically correcting your spelling errors, especially if you really intended to misspell them.

    Most companies give a break to those who drive less than 7500 miles a year. If you take public transportation instead of driving to work, your premium will go down. Out of the question? Try “Clearance Auto”.

    You’re not working with models, you’re working with real women who have, like, anatomy. Models do not have anatomy.
