Earlier this morning:
Me: (writing in my journal) Nonna, my 91 year-old grandmother…
Autocorrect: Did you me “Donna”?
Me: No, undo change. (continue writing) good news is that Nonna…
Autocorrect: Did you me “Gonna”?
I can forgive MacOS for considering nonna a spelling error, since it’s not an English word.
But I do see why auto-correct on MacOS can be frustrating. Apart from the two completely random corrections it made for the same word, it also doesn’t seem to get the hint when I undo the change. I would have thought that action is a pretty strong signal from the user to just leave the word alone, at least for the moment.
