Found a Spell Checker that Works Here

I am probably the only person out of the loop on this, but I have been frustrated that there was not a spell-checker on the BGE Forum.

On a different forum where I participate (B&B Shaving Forum), I was directed to download a product called "ieSpell" at www.ieSpell.com

It is free for personal use and seems to work well here and other places. You select the text you want to check, right click and select spell check.

It even allows you to develop personal spelling lists, so everything from BGE to EVOO checks as okay.

Good luck.

    Hey Bob,

    I assure you aren't the only one out of the loop on here when it comes to spell checkers. :laugh:

    I have been using ieSpell for years and love it. It is a great program and works just about anywhere you have to enter text. It is very good at guessing what I am trying to spell though I have had to add several words to it's dictionary. On the few occasions that it can't understand me I will open a window to the search engine AltaVista and do a search for my word there. AltaVista is very good at correcting what ever I enter as a search.

    Glad you found it,

    Gator

    I use Firefox on a Mac and the spell checker works fine, fortunately, the way I type I kneed all the help I can get. A grammar checker would be appreciated though. :)

  • It's appropriate that this little poem be noted.


    Ode to Spell Checker

    Eye halve a spelling checker
    It came with my pea sea
    It plainly marks four my revue
    Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

    Eye strike a key and type a word
    And weight four it two say
    Weather eye am wrong oar write
    It shows me strait a weigh.

    As soon as a mist ache is maid
    It nose bee fore two long
    And eye can put the error rite
    Its rare lea ever wrong.

    Eye have run this poem threw it
    I am shore your pleased two no
    Its letter perfect awl the weigh
    My checker tolled me sew.


    You're welcome

If I was to post a full post without a few mispelled words someone would think I had been abdupted by allians!! :laugh: Several have suggested to Google tool bar in the past. Thing is there is just to much going on with it and as far as a dictionary, like I told teachers: How can I look up "cat" when I try and spell it "kat"??!! :laugh:
