OK…Take this with as many grains of salt as you need. Here is a great little device that lives in your IE browser that lets you spell check any text in any window on a web page. It’s free and easy to download and install. Once installed, you just right click and pick “check spelling” out of the menu. I have installed it on all the browsers/computers I own and I use it all the time, because I am a crappy speller. This add on works seamlessly, and is free. There are many places to download it from, you can do a search on IE spell check, or download it here, from Cnet.

To use it you just highlight the text you want to check (from one word to a whole paragraph..thats assuming you use punctuation) and right click and select check spelling. Be careful about what the replacement words are..I have been burned a few times when it replaced misspellings with words I didn’t want!

Get it!

David thanks for posting this. One of my pet peeves is about people being to lazy or uninformed about pushing the spell check button. My MS Internet Explorer 8 has the spell check built in and I use it all the time.

Firefox has this built in. It just gets weird sometimes in words it sees, words it thinks you are trying to spell or it thinks a word should have a capital letter in it.

My computer has spell check in all programs that have words. It’s built into the OS. Apple.

That’s a nice tool however, no spell checker will correct improper usage of homonyms/homophones aka their, there, they’re.. etc. etc. Now, for the record, I am a terrific speller and probably the world’s biggest fanantic when it comes to proper spelling. BUT, these days I say if a guy can build great and beautiful things with wood to hell with spell check- at least here on L/j. Now for your buisness website.. that’s a different story.
