    While typing I will come across a word that needs added yet I can't figure out how to do it.

    You should be able to go to settings/language &inputs/ select the typing app you use and edit dictionary.

    Or as you're typing, there should be word suggestions pop up. As you type a word that's not in the stock dictionary just click on the word you're typing. The add to dictionary option should pop up.

    I could he wrong as I haven't messed with an s4 yet. Should be very similar though.

    I know that I can go to the input part but I want to be able to add on the fly as I text. And you can't touch the word to add it to the dictionary.

    Hmm I would recommend using swiftkey or swype or thumb keyboard. These 3rd party keyboard apps have many more options than the stock keyboard. Sorry. But that's all I got. :(

    This is one of the reasons I had to go back to my dependable Swype. Bilingual folks plus text shorthand kills any smart keyboard haha :)
