Manually add/remove learned words in Text Assist [webOS 2.x]

This tip is only for devices running webOS 2.0 and higher

webOS 2.0 brought a significant overhaul to how autocorrection works on your webOS device, even allowing you to add a word to the user dictionary as you type. But if you know of words that you want to enter into the dictionary, there is a quicker way to add them to the dictionary than using the autocorrect pop-ups. Just open up the Text Assist app ( ) and tap on the "Edit User Dictionary" button on the bottom of the screen. On the "Learned Words" tab, you will see a list of all the words you have already added to the dictionary, but you can also add or remove words from here

  • To manually add additional words to the user dictionary, just tap on the + sign on the bottom-left of this page and enter the new word on the next screen
  • To edit a learned word, just tap on it and edit the text on the next screen
  • To remove any words that have already been added (either manually or from the pop-up while you type) just swipe-to-delete the word off the screen and confirm the deletion
