    Re: Spell Checker

    My browser has one built in. I don't see the point of slowing the site down with an extra feature you can install client side instead.

    Re: Spell Checker

    There are various sites that have spell checking facilities, such as http://www.spellcheck.net.

    Why not use something like Word, or as Geoff does, use a browser with spell checking built in.

    BTW, what browser do you use?

    Is it really that hard to either just stop and think about your spelling, or JFGI?

    http://www.google.com/search?q=ie7+spell+check

    First result looks like it will do the job just fine...

    Re: Spell Checker

    IE7 Pro isn't bad, if I remember rightly they've added a Spell Checker.

    http://www.ie7pro.com/

    Other than that, check your own spelling! :P

    Re: Spell Checker

    If you're that bothered why not just type it out in a word processor first and then copy and paste it back Far easier.

    OR get a linux installation running gnome and it'll spell check it for you automatically (or so i've noticed)

    Re: Spell Checker

    Well as everyone knows my spelling/grammer is not great but I use firefox plugin and word to help.

    Also listen to following podcasts...

    http://www.manager-tools.com/2007/04...y-part-1-of-2/
    http://www.manager-tools.com/2007/04...y-part-2-of-2/

    Also write, write and write as writing can improve if you work at it. When you have written and followed steps in the mentioned podcasts. Get someone to check it and then work out where you made mistakes.

    Re: Spell Checker

    I can agree with russdev there. Writing will improve your grammar and spelling. Being a pedant also helps, of course.

    The assignments you will have to do at uni / college or wherever you go next, if education is your path of choice, will also help.
