memoQ uses AutoCorrect to correct typos while you are typing. memoQ knows what to correct from AutoCorrect lists. Those have pairs of mistyped words and their corrections.

As part of AutoCorrect, memoQ can correct accidental capitalization. In addition, here is where you deal with 'smart quotes', where memoQ replaces the plain quotes you type with the correct typographical quotes for the target language.
