A while ago I somehow found a screen that enabled me to set Predictive Text...or whatever it is they call it.

I set this up and now the stupid facility is driving me crazy and I do not know how to turn it off! :sad:
I do not know if it is the Android developers or Samsung that are responsible for this program but it definitely sees the English language different to the way I see it.

Could someone please tell me how to disable this function so that I no longer get prompts for every word I try to type in...my apologies if this has been covered before but the Search function is no help here.

This is for the original P1000 7 inch tablet.


Thanks. ;)
