We have looked into this Kieth. There is only a third party one available and neither the host or supplier will take responsibility if it goes wrong. If stuck I use word. We will keep looking

I'm a reasonably good speller so have no need for a spell checker, do as I do.

if you can't spell a certain word, change it for one you can :D :D :D

Hello Eileen,

I subscribe to the Computeractive magazine in the latest issue 379 / 30 August to 12 September 2012 their Workshops section (page 36) they tell you how to add a FREE Spell-checker to Internet Explorer. It is too large a write-up to repeat here but I would suggest you get a copy of this magazine from your local newsagent and meanwhile this is what it says in Step 1 - "Speckie works on Internet Explorer 6 (IE6) onwards and on all the popular versions of Windows - we are using it with IE9 and Windows 7. Launch a web browser, visit www.speckie.com and when the page loads etc.........."

It might be worth looking at.

Audrey.

PS - when my PC crashed recently I lost all my email contact addresses. Could you send me an email please and then your
e-address will automatically be added to my list. You know my email address of course. Thanks in advance - Aud

Hi< I am one of the many who have difficulty spelling, : But, I was forced into an office during National Service, and then years later, into an office, instead of the shop floor. A senior director, told me, your spelling is bad, but by goodness, it makes for interesting reading.

SO I get on with it

Hi Ken
My spelling and punctuation is not that good but I believe that it is what you are saying that is the important part. As long as we all understand what is being said then it is not the end of the world if we spell it wrong from time to time.

I have an American 'pen-friend' and we've been writing to each other since senior school days. I've often thought the Americans have the right idea e.g. 'Mary Christmas', 'rite again soon' - in other words she spells her words how they sound. I believe there is a 'posh' word to describe this but, having another senior moment, I cannot remember it right now. (or should it be rite now).

What does it matter anyway, the main thing is to keep in touch with one another. After all, it's what you have to say that is the interesting part of the letter.

Hi,
Just catching up, not been here before, hope you don't mind if I put my twopennys worth in.
If I feel the word is not spelt as it should be - I go up to the top of the page, right hand side, 3 Icons, click the one with the little dash in it, this saves this page, go into Microsoft Office Word, write the word and use the spellchecker, Copy it/or write it down, go to the bottom bar tick Yamaha Keyboard and back you are on this page. OR you can write the whole message on Microsoft Office Word, spell check it, high light and copy it and paste it on this Reply. IF you don't have Microsoft Office Words you can use Outlook Express the same way.
Hope this may help -Robin.

Hi Tom,
Well it's a bit like this, living in a posh place like wot I do one has to keep up appearances and use big words also, what you do means using my old worn out brain twice trying to think of another word for broomstick !!!
See you at Skeggy, first pints on me Robin.

Hello Eileen and fellow campers. Not sure but after reading this thread I noticed I have spell check in here. It underlines a word when I misspell it and a right click gives me word options. I think it might be the way I have my browser set up. Not really sure. Just wanted to let you know so maybe you can check into it.
I just found out misspelled has two S's in it. :lol:

Okay, I just went to the top of my screen where it says Tools. Clicked on that then options. Tab over to Advanced. Check mark next to Check my spelling as I type. I use Fire Fox which is probably why I have this option. As stated above I think there is an add on that individuals can get for IE that will enable them to have it. So if you have IE just Google IE Smell Check.

I agree Adrian,
I was very pleased when Google Mail gave us a spell checker as it works who ever you are typing to.

Hi Eileen, I'm usually a very good speller, but I am an awful typist, so it does highlight

any typos I make before I post. ( if I do read it through.)

I've got a spell checker on this forum. If I miss spell a word, it highlights and underlines it and gives suggestions for correct spelling. I'm using Google Chrome now. Can't remember whether it worked on IE.

Its OK to say that as long as you are understood it does not matter how it is spelt but please make sure you spell some ones NAME RIGHT.

I just use ispell. Its free and works on IE for any site. I just right click and it is one of the options.
That is when I remeber to use it :lol:
Personally it make no real difference to me. Because you are good at spelling dose not mean you are any cleverer than those of us who can not spell. I was always bottom of class spelling but top at maths. Swings and roundabouts.

Hi Folks,

I use Google Chrome as browser on all of my gear - and like Michael said, it takes care of all spell checking. I haven't used IE in a while, it was too flimsy and not well integrated into things like maps, social media, calendars, etc. On the Google platform - you get that all included and it simply works. I don't even use MS Office anymore, Google Docs has all that I need and can convert to different formats for sharing. If I want "pretty" - then I'd rather buy an Office component on the Mac :D

Just my 5c :lol:

Cheers, Roland

Be careful what you wish for. My Ipad comes up with some pretty weird substitutions including words that are totally off the wall. Have to remember to proof read everything. :D
