How to Spell check Your Posts
« on: May 19, 2003, 10:15:37 PM »

One of the complaints I often hear about this message board is that there is no spell checker attached.  Many of us who rely on spell  checkers have resorted to composing a message in Word, then copying and pasting it into a message.  Well, there is now a really neat way of spell checking directly.  Go to http://www.iespell.com and download ieSpell, a free Internet Explorer browser extension that spell checks text input boxes on a webpage. It should come in particularly handy for users who do a lot of web-based text entry (e.g. web mails, forums, blogs, diaries). Even if your web application already includes spell checking functionality, you might still want to install this utility because it is definitely much faster than a server-side solution. Plus you get to store and use your personal word list across all your applications, instead of maintaining separate ones on each application.
 
 The program installs as a new button in the IE toolbar (as well as a new menu item under "Tools") - after filling in a form, just hit the ieSpell button or right-click your mouse and it pops up a dialog, similar to the MS Word spell check.
 
 ieSpell is not spyware or adware. Its free for personal and not-for-profit use.  I've used it for a while, and it works well.
