    Disabling spell checker in Word??????

    Hello everyone,

    I have been asked this morning if it is possible to disable the spell checker in Microsoft Word. There is a student soon to sit her SATS but has a damaged hand and needs to use a laptop. The SAT requirements state that spelling and grammar checks need to be disabled.

    I have no idea how to do this however, or even if it is possible!! The version of office being used is XP.

    The only way I know of is to uninstall Office and have the student use Notepad or Wordpad!

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    I believe you can do that with the Office ADM templates.

    It never seems to work, I tried it and it still kicks back in if you press F7, so after talking to the exam boards Wordpad is the option for them
