Autocorrect

If the Samsung keyboard's text recognition is enabled, we can also use the autocorrection feature, which is enabled by default; if a word is written with a spelling error, the text recognition feature will detect this and automatically correct the word when the space bar, Enter or a punctuation mark is tapped.
