    Question Change Swype Dictionary

    How does one change the swipe words offered when something is misspelled? Really sux when using numerals. First thing I did was set up phone and now THAT 10 digit number is first up, when all I wish to type is '3'., etc...

    Regular phone dictionary adds words but doesn't alter predictive word choices. Help?

    Teaching Swype a new word is as simple as tapping it in a letter at a time. After that, it should know it. Sometimes you do have to be a little more precise in your pattern as well, because sometimes I see it bring up options, then others it knows exactly what I wanted, for the same given word.

    As for removing... tap the word out, highlight it, then tap the Swype key. That should be that.

    Also if you find that you are using a lot of words that swype doesn't recognize, there is an app called SMS to Swype, that basically takes everything you say in your text and adds them to the swype dictionary. Its pretty cool because a lot of the work jargon I use and person jargon and slang is now available through swype. even my email addresses are available up until the @domainname but if i type in letter for letter if recognizes the whole thing after three letters.

    Here is the appbrain link SMS to Swype - Android app on AppBrain
