Disable Autocorrect On OS X Mavericks And Yosemite

Apple seems to have set the autocorrect feature enabled on the OS X Mavericks (10.9) and in Yosemite (OS 10.10) too, the company do this without the need to ask us whether the feature is good before deciding to set it available by default.

The existence of autocorrect is truly a bothering for me, each time my fingers typing a word or text and the autocorrect thinks the word needs to be changed, and that's the time something bizarre or inappropriate appears. My word changed into some irrelevant words without my consent.

However this feature will be very handy for those who don't spell correctly, so each time they mistakenly type a word, this spelling autocorrection feature will attempt to automatically correct a typo.

But sometimes we don't see the need to use it -- for example in just a trivial chat with a friend -- the existence of autocorrection is truly pain in the head for example when we are typing messages on Skype, iMessage, or any other messaging apps which the words are typed a lot and simply we don't feel necessary to type accordingly. You know what I mean, don't you?

Well luckily we can disable autocorrect feature on OSX 10.9 and mostly on other versions too. It is time to turn that feature off, and put an end of our misery.

How to disable autocorrect feature (spelling autocorrection) on OS X Mavericks and Yosemite

  1. Now open Apple Menu > System Preferences.
  2. Now you have to click on Keyboard > Text and set the Autocorrect off by deselecting Correct spelling automatically.
    Select Keyboard Spelling
    Disable Correct Spelling On OSX
The above method will set the autocorrect feature off for all application on your OSX, however if you are a different from me and thinks the feature is useful for a certain app installed on your device. Then you can disable it on certain app and leave it enabled on another app as your choice.

Turn off Autocorrect feature only on certain apps.

To do so then you can set it from Application Edit Menu under Spelling and Grammar, then turn off Check Spelling While Typing.

Disable AutoCorrect On OSX Apple
The procedure above will only apply on the app you chose, and the autocorrect feature will still enabled on other apps.
