Spell checker
« on: March 20, 2011, 11:50:05 am »
    A while back I found a way to add a spell checker to this board and did so on my desktop computer. I rank up near the top of the "worlds worst spellers" list. On my last trip, I was using my laptop and wanted to spell check, but it was not there. Now I can not find how to install the spell checker. What I have on my desktop is now under tools as iespell or I can right click on this block and pic  "check spelling". Can anyone help me find a way to add it to my laptop?  :help

    Also welcome to the new "Hero members" over 100 or more post.  2o2 Go to Members above and sort by post to see who they are/will soon be.

I’m on the same list: “World’s Worst Spellers”.  I always compose my replies in MS Word, then copy and paste. Now no mispellings! Whoops, I mean, no misspellings.
I remember very few of the things that I’ve spent money to buy, but I remember all of the places that I’ve spent money to see.

Boy, I am getting old and stupid sometimes. I mailed Aimee and even replied to her before I remembered to google "ieSpell". There it was, a free download that can be used anywhere in IE. It works great

Ron, you need to restart IE. Then you can right click in the box and select "check spelling" or go to "tools" and select iespell. I got a new keyboard, the Logitech wave, and now I can't even type without making mistakes. Thank goodness for spell checking. roflol
