Auto spell correction - Mac OS X 10.7

Turn off Auto Correct in Mac OS X Lion

Annoyed with OS X Lion‘s new auto correct feature? You can turn disable it quickly:
  • Launch System Preferences, click on “Language & Text”
  • Click on the “Text” tab and uncheck the box next to “correct spelling automatically”
Auto correct in Lion is seemingly a lot more intelligent than past iOS versions, but it still can be frustrating when you are typing unique names of people, products, companies, slang, and even various tech terms.

Obviously if you want it enabled again, you just need to recheck that box.
