Custom Dictionary Additions Discovered in iPhone OS 4.0 Beta 4
Posted on May 20, 2010 by vincent oliver
On iPhone OS 4.0 beta 4, within the Keyboard section of the Settings menu, Apple has added an option called “Edit User Dictionary.” This is a feature I’ve been wanting for a long time, the ability to edit and add words to the iPhone’s automated word recognition dictionary. Currently the only way to add custom words or abbreviations is to deliberately skip recommended corrections, but this new feature will let you manually enter words you want accepted. This will also let you delete specific words from being included in the recognition dictionary. There are some misspelled words I’ve accidentally accepted, and the only way to delete them in the current iPhone OS is to delete the entire custom dictionary.
