autocorrect function in word processing software
I'm looking for information (articles, white papers) on the autocorrect
technology built into most word processing software (e.g., Microsoft Word).
I want to understand (in broad terms) the software engineering side of
things (how does the technology work?), but just as importantly, the
theoretical side (e.g., classification of errors [haplography, dittography,
metathesis, etc.] according to current thinking on the physiological
mechanisms involved in copying/transcribing/typing (perhaps this sort of R&D
falls within the purview of visual word recognition?).
Any leads, observations, thoughts, or references much appreciated. I'd be
happy to compile a list of responses and report back to the list in a week
