Spell Checker

At the moment I am using mainly my right hand to type... My spelling is not good even when I have two hands, is there any way we can get a spell checker here?

Re: Spell Checker

I thought we had one. I type too fast and I could swear I've been able to right click and get suggestions for misspelled words. Yeah, you can; I just checked. The misspelled word is underlined in red and a right click brings up a list of potential corrections.

Re: Spell Checker

I don't know what Suckachsinheet and lenape are talking about. hmm I just tried right-clicking; lots of things come up, but not a spellcheck. I have Goggle toolbar with spellcheck and use it everyday.

I usually use Firefox. I suppose it could be an extension of something else I have installed; a toolbar or something. Anyhow, I'm grateful for it...

Re: Spell Checker

I logged in with IE, and now there is no spell check. It must be a feature of Firefox or one of the extensions I have installed. Too bad for IE users...

Re: Spell Checker

I use IE, but I have a Google toolbar installed. Just click on the "ABC Check" on the bar and misspelled words are shown in red, one click and suggested spellings are given. Easy.
