There is a common keyboard issue that pops up every time you try to enter some text in your Android 5.0 tablet. The auto suggestions feature gets activated and starts displaying suggested keywords.
Most users would be relieved to find a way to get rid of this feature. So we will provide you a step by step guide to deactivate that feature.
The feature can be turned off by entering the Android settings.
- Tap on Settings from All Apps (alternate method will be to swipe down on the top for Quick Settings and choosing the Settings options)
- Enter the Personal area and tap on Language & Input
- Enter Keyboard & Input Methods and tap on Google Keyboard
- This is where you can deactivate the feature. Tap on Text Correction and turn off the Show Correction Suggestions button
There is much more that you can do in this section. You could deactivate the features that enable increasing degree of auto-correction or auto-suggestion for the next word that you will most probably enter.
The Text Correction Settings section will also allow you to make adjustments to the languages and the respective dictionaries.
You could however make other changes too. For example, you can set the settings so that Android could suggest names from the device’s contact list.
You could also control the words that Android may suggest. For example, there are certain words that may be offensive in certain cultures. Many users have reported that the personalised auto-suggestions feature has been helpful to them.
The software works by learning from the user’s typing to suggest words in the future.
So it is recommended that rather than deactivating the auto-suggestion feature altogether, you could check all the other options before making any decision.
You may find a feature that could eventually prove to be of great help.
