    Spell checker for iPad (IOS 11) and Safari

    I feel like I am missing something -

    I have no spell checker that works in the background. What I am used to is Chrome on my PC that underlines misspelled words as I type them.

    With my iPad and Safari I have to spot my spelling mistakes myself - can then touch the word and it will give me a correction suggestion.

    I am getting worse as I get older with recognizing misspelled words. Plus I am constantly making mistakes because of my fat slow fingers on the on-screen touch keypad.

    And no, I wonít use Chrome on IOS because of no ad blocker.

    When I misspell words it turns blue and suggests a replacement, most times anyway. Sometimes it just fixes it automatically.

    My ipad tends to guess words as I'm typing . Sometimes it inserts words or spellings that I don't mean to use. Most of the time it works well. Sometimes it will not let me spell the names of people or roads properly.

    Iíve had such a pleasurable day with my new spell checker - oh so nice!

    Now if I could only get rid of that #$&* undo button that I always hit by mistake and loose all my text......

    Why oh why did they put that right next to the space bar. In fact it takes up the space of the space bar when in upper case mode. Iím almost tempted to insert the little character that bangs itís head against a wall.....

    Search around CT, I'm pretty sure there are other keyboards you can download or assign in the settings and use-look at my pic above, I don't have that UNDO and I've never added anything special.

    Uppercase mode to me is when you double tap the shift key (note it’s underlned) and it locks in all caps mode LIKE THIS:

    The Undo button is not there. It is only present when the numeric/symbol keyboard is active just like your picture shows, I don’t see this as an issue since your not generally in that keyboard for typing replies or emails.
