scrambled words

  jack 14:36 04 Sep 2009

When typing text - such as a new subject or response to say this forum I find on checking through before sending[I have to tell my self to do this] not only for typo's and misspells but also find words have extra characters added that I sure I did not type- it is almost like a stutter/stammer
for example 'sausages' could come out as saussausages.
So the big question is is it me or is it the computer up to tricks?

Like a stutter you mean- fingers duplicating thoughts.
Old age who Me or the computer ;-}

I wondered if in fact it was a processing/memory thing of some sort.

In my case it was my Processor Brain, as I will often type letters the wrong way round, Thinking faster than typing

Have you tried a different keyboard on the computer? That might give you a clearer idea of whether the problem lies in the keyboard or the software.

That's assuming we have definitely eliminated the operator's alcohol intake.

Try not to rush it. The typing not the amber nectar.

I have that problem all the time!

It's helpful to others if you post back with the results of suggested solutions, rather than just closing the thread.

Did you resolve the problem? If so, how?
