Android spell check, how to disable it?

    I always get red lines beneath words when I'm typing in my language (Dutch), which is quite annoying.

    I guess it's the built in Android spell checker. But there is no way to disable it in the 'Language & input' menu... How to do this?

    This is what one would normally do:

    This is the option I am looking for:

    It seems you like to use Dutch typing and need correction for this. Go to <settings> <language & Input> <Android Keyboard settings>and in Text Corrections <Add-on dictionaries> you make your settings! Also add your "Nederlands" (Dutch) and Disable English.

    Dutch dictionary was already installed. Disabling the English dictionary doesn't solve it, unfortunately. Still red lines.

    Disabling all dictionaries has no effect either. Also have tried to disable word prediction and all such things. No effect.

    I would like to disable spell checking altogether. :)
    Maybe I should just install CM10.1.

    Yeah this annoys me too. It doesn't matter which keyboard you're using, text is still underlined if you type in foreign language...

    Same problem here when writing Norwegian.

    I have found a solution to this. Go to your apps list, select "Android Keyboard" and press "Disable". Bye-bye red lines.

    I always delete it with titanium backup, bye bye annoying red lines.

    Hi, I tried to follow your suggestions however whenever I disable Android Keyboard I end up having no default input software available to type my messages with.. how do I go about this correctly? Am I missing some step?
  13. tjrolds Memberph

    Problem is we don't have support yet for Filipino/Tagalog language, so I'd rather have it completely disabled. Anyway thanks for the suggestion :)

    Gotta have some of third party keyboards installed I guess...
  15. tjrolds Memberph

    Yes, well considering what small hands I have, I'd prefere using Smart Keyboard Pro as usual however this app does not work with my Find 5. Good thing I have found a good alternative, Perfect Keyboard Pro. I noticed the lines are still there though..

    I'm using A.I. type keyboard Pro and this workaround works, no red lines anymore. Not sure why you can't achive the same with Perfect Keyboard.

    I'm using Smart Keyboard Pro with my Oppo and it's working fine... That's the first thing I always do on all my phones, install Smart Keyboard... :)

    I wonder what's the problem with mine, I also do the same thing everytime I switch to a new android phone.

    Can you tell me what version of the app are you using?

    Thank you for this. I've used Swiftkey and now I'm using Swype so the solution works perfectly.
