Using autocorrect makes typing much easier on phones. Not only you can write words you don’t know the spellings of correctly, but it also compensates for mis-hits on the tiny keyboard.
But one day I had to write something using a pen and paper and I realised that I had forgotten how to spell common words. For example I had no idea if it was “absense” or “absence”.
Then I turned off autocorrect on my phone so that I can relearn how to spell words. I have gotten a lot better since then.
Has anyone else had a similar experience?

I always turn it off. It’s literally never reasonably accurate and it gets in my way more often than it helps.
