to stop auto correct and extra periods in Kindle

Kindle Fire HDX & HD

1.Swipe down the bar at the top of the screen and choose “Settings“.
2.Select “Language & Keyboard“.
3.Select “Keyboard Settings“.
4.Set “Auto capitalization” and “Auto-correction” to “On” or “Off” as desired. You might want to change “Next Word Prediction” also if you have a preference on whether or not the Kindle Fire should try to predict what word you are typing.
