Auto correct typos
Primo search should have the ability to auto correct common spelling errors and typos.
A current review of our zero result searches has shown that many zero result searches are typos and misspellings.
Users are used to systems that can auto-correct or suggest corrections for misspelled words.
Auto correct of typos would greatly improve the user experience.

I support this idea. In addition to automatically correcting common spelling errors and typos Primo should enable the user to switch back to their original search terms if those were the terms they intended to use. Exactly the same as Google uses:
Searched for: trcks
Showing results for trucks
Search instead for trcks
This gives the user the ability to back out of auto corrections they didn't want to happen
