Anyone who has used a smartphone for a text message will know how auto-correct can easily get things wrong, but there is one auto-correct system that will put you on the wrong every time unless you watch it. Word processing systems will often auto-capitalize the first word after a quotation mark if the dialogue ends with a question mark or an exclamation point.Eg. “How does this work again?” He asked. In this instance, the he asked is a continuation of the sentence, hence the he should be lower case. “How does this work again?” he asked. Auto-correct doesn’t like this. It does mean that one needs to manually correct auto-correct.
