    Hello,

    When I connect an external USB-keyboard to my iPad, I have to tap a misspelled word to have it corrected. When I type using the on-screen keyboard, auto-corrections will be applied without tapping anything.

    Is this normal, and if so, is there any way to set it to automaticly correct misspelled words, even when I type using an external keyboard? The official keyboard dock doesn't disable auto-correction when typing...

    Thanks in advance

    Sure.

    Anyways, doesn't the iPad only support bluetooth keyboards+ Apples?

    Officially, it only supports the keyboard-dock + bluetooth keyboards, but you can also use an USB-keyboard with the camera connection kit, although that isn't officially supported. But I think it is strange that it disables auto-correction when using an USB-keyboard, while leaving it enabled with the official keybaord-dock.

    i just tested this with both the Apple Bluetooth keyboard AND a USB keyboard via the Camera Connection Kit and in both cases, misspelled words were automatically corrected when i pressed the space bar, just like the on-screen keyboard does... Maybe try a different USB keyboard and see what happens?!

    Note: I'm using a jail broken 32GB iPad on 3.2.

    Well, as I am Dutch, I have set my hardware keyboard to dutch in the settings, but even when I set everthing to English, auto-correction won't work when I use an USB-keyboard. I even tried this with two different USB-keyboards, and in both cases, auto correction doesn't work... Could anyone try to change all settings to dutch, and then check if auto-correction still works with an external USB-keyboard?
