With lots of folks learning online now, even English class, this could be not great for learning, people don't learn what words they are misspelling. Especially with Google docs auto correcting or showing the word and not letting you think about and re type it… and other systems doing the same, auto correcting or trying to say what you should type (with a tab… MS outlook online…)
For this project I propose a Firefox/chrome addon for turning off auto correct - and gamifying high percentage of correctly typed words, for English learners and writers.
What it does
Auto correct popup off (in Chrome, Google Docs only, for now.)
How I built it
JS file and chrome extension.
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Quick js fixes
What I learnedi
Chrome addon api.
What's next for Autocorrect remover
Could work better and store what words are misspelled, share score. Not yet built for Microsoft-word-online or for Firefox or other browsers.
