Spell checker RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using windows 7 home premium. There is no spell checker function when typing in the forum pages. Is there anyway that I can get this to work on forum pages?

  • Spell Check in Internet Explorer is not supported by default. 

    Just like Firefox, Google Chrome or any other popular Web Browsers, Internet Explorer can have the same functionality with the add-on.

    Here's a link that you will need to install to get spell check in the Internet Explorer.

  • Hello BlueW_Ryan,

    Thank you for the link to download Spell check for Internet explorer (IE). IE is not like the other web browsers. In Firefox and Google Chrome both, spell check is built in and no add on is necessary. I use all these three browsers. Makes one wonder why IE falls short here.

    Thank you and best regards.



    I have just received some more information about spell checker for anyone who is interested.

    Firefox has a built in spell checker since Firefox 2.0. A dictionary is also installed for this purpose in the "en-US" version only. If necessary, more dictionaries could be added from this link - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/language-tools/

    In the non en-US versions the spell checker is built in but the dictionary is not. This, apparently is due to licence reasons but the user has the option to install a dictionary and to select a language and he is in business!
