Notes

  • In some questions types, there is the option to enable or disable spellcheck and text correction, which controls browser spellcheck, auto-complete, auto-correct and auto-capitalize on response fields.

  • iOS provides a method to disable auto-complete so that text suggestions are not displayed to or corrected for the user as they type.

  • Predictive text keyboards may still display text suggestions even if browser spellcheck, auto-complete, auto-correct and auto-capitalize are disabled for a text input field. This is common on Android devices which are considered to be unsupported (for spellcheck and text correction).
