Kindle Fire: Enable/Disable Auto-Correction & Capitalization

Are you tired of your Amazon Kindle Fire automatically correcting and capitalizing the words you type? I was, and had to disable the setting. Here’s how to turn the auto correction and capitalization features of the Kindle Fire on or off.

1. From the home screen, select the settings gear then More.

    Yes, you can turn it off but it will not stay off. I am on mine as I write this after just going into keyboard settings and turning off everything. As I type, it is right back on telling me what words I should use.

    Tried everything to get auto correct/auto suggest OFF…. it wont go away. Hate this feature, but thank you for trying to help all of us anyway.

    Thank you. The Amazon Kindle “help” was no help at all. You guys had the good info. You’re the aces.

    I have a problem with my kindle fire, when I click into the web it goes to a gray screen for about 2 seconds and then goes back to the menu “home” page any suggestions and I am not tecky so please explain every step, I am not sure what the “silk” is either.

    Your suggestion of disabling auto-capitalization and quick fixes does nada. Stupid keyboard still inserts its own suggestions, making typing a pain.

    You should update your article to reflect this.

    This is awful. It keeps “correcting” when it shouldn’t. If you are writting in another language it is a pain. It makes you look like a moron.

  7. Mitch says

    Wow! You’re right. I just tried an email and the setting doesn’t work at all. I’ll try to get some more info on this. Seems like a bug.
