How often do you find yourself making typographical errors? And how do you best correct them? Or do you tend to just leave them? How many typos did you make when you posted your reply?

(I made two.)

Sometimes I get typos even though I manage to fix it by reviewing the texts that I type. But it can't be helped if I'm getting typo while typing quickly in the chat, though, because I can't edit it.

Well I'm on my iTouch right now and so far I have made 2 Typos.
I'm pretty good on a computer and rarely make a typo, but I make a few that are always corrected on my iTouch.

On a phone, I check through it to make sure that I haven't made any typos in it. On Skype however, if I see a typo after I've posted the message, then I just edit it.

Most of the time I'm able to see when I make typos thanks to spellcheck on most applications, but if I do see myself making a mistake then I'll usually fix it, though sometimes I can unintentionally let a typo slip through. However, on my tablet, since I use Swype, typos are quite common for me there.

I tend to make a couple when I'm tired but usually I'm a pretty accurate typist... at least I like to think I am paha. I had to take several typing tests for a transcribing job that I applied for so I became pretty well practised at typing but I'm not perfect yet. ;) Made no typos whilst typing this, though!

I make them quite often because I try to type much faster than I actually can which is a really bad idea. I immediately correct myself though with either the use of an * or I will completely edit the post if it is on PC or if I am typing a paper or some other important document. Let's just say that autocorrect also helps me a lot XD

Anyone who has seen me in RPC knows that I'm prone to serious typos. Like, I get them everywhere. It's like a rash.

While I do make my fair share of typos; I do my best to correct them inline as I'm typing my posts. Most typos I make never see the light of the web, for they are slain before the submit command is ever executed.

EDIT: Even if one survives; I'm a level 74 edit ninja. If I don't want you to know I've edited my post; you generally won't know unless you have powers. ;)

I don't like it when I'm making dem typoz. (and those are just intentional). I always go back and redo them, so I wouldn't make a fool out of myself. :P

Not too often, and I generally correct them. Word choice and sentence structure are what a contend with, but only because I like to.

I have horrible grammatical habits, but for typos, they are rare for me and usually get corrected long before I submit. I do screw up once in a while, and don't mind being corrected if it was an actual mistake. I also make types for laughs sometimes.

Often enough. >.< I type a bit fast so I make mistakes and sometimes submit my post/message without noticing. I try to read through what I write first though aha.

Sometimes I try and respond to things here so quickly I end up making typos. It's not uncommon for me to always make a spelling mistake here and there.
