What are some advantages and disadvantages of autocorrect/the autocorrect feature?

One advantage: Gives te the word that you're looking for and/or trying to spell correctly instantly/immediately on the spot

One disadvantage: Gives te the wrong word and/or replaces a particular word that you're currently using o want to use

I've never used autocorrect :v

I'm good with spelling and it takes no time to actually type the word. The amount of autocorrect fails I've seen, I'd rather not take the chance :P I'm sure I'd probably find it annoying to use anyway.

Advantage: Makes everyone laugh at the replaced word when te didn't intend for it.

Disadvantage: If te don't want people to laugh at your replaced words.

I use auto correct sometimes - putting my own corrections in when I am typing up my FYI files o things where I am using a long word / name often. For instance if I was typing up an articolo on Lawrence Gowan - I will put into the the document an auto correct for when I type in LG - it automatically corrects it to his full name and not just the initials.

The biggest problems with the auto correct is when te have più than one name with the same initials, o te forget to take it off / change it to the replacement for the subsequent document / page.
