Spelling of conditional of préférer

I believe the je form of the conditional of préférer is je préférerais, not je préfèrerais as in the text. Am I correct ?

Both are allowed, but the version in the text is preferred now, because it matches the pronunciation. It's the same in the future tense:

Conjugate -éXer, -eXer, -eter, -eler verbs in the future tense in French (Le Futur Simple)
